所述的传感器可以是雷达应用特定的传感器，也可以是超声波传感器的形式。他们帮助不同的功能，如车道偏离警告，停车援助，自动停车，交叉交通警报和更多(Conner, 2011)。使用自动驾驶汽车将缓解高峰时间的道路压力，节省工人每天的驾驶时间。由于司机不需要关注道路和驾驶，他们可以利用开车的时间做其他事情，比如在车上吃早餐或者阅读一些关于晨会的材料(Top 20 Pros, 2015)。这是自动驾驶医疗的基本功能。传感器是驱动功能背后的核心机制。自动驾驶汽车还将降低道路事故的发生率。由于大多数汽车碰撞事故都是由人的错误造成的，使用自动驾驶汽车可以忽略人的错误的影响。道路系统将变得更加高效和安全。可以看出，自动驾驶汽车可以让员工在驾驶时间做更多的任务，可以帮助城市成为一个更有效率的地方。
Google has already published its first self-driving car. Even though this car is still in trial time, we can see its unlimited potential. Self-driving car can make any place a much more efficient place.Computers and sensors have been used on self-driving cars. It helps car to determine the most suitable route to driver’s destination. Especially on morning peak time, self-driving car can connect to internet and other self-driving cars’ computers. The shared information of road condition will be received by all self-driving cars’ computers. The computers will analysis this information and select the best route to driver’s work place. It can switch between taking the most popular route versus city lanes not frequented in order to reach the drivers destination. Furthermore, it will calculate uncertainties based on past histories when taking certain roads and will make an informed decision to the person using it. Real time updates on any road constructions will be fed into a central system or the smart network that the self-driving car will connect to will be able to pick up the data from local news and media outlets.
The use of sensors can also be put to proper use in order to control resource usage within the car. The maintenance and more would be reduced. The car would maintain the optimum temperature needed inside it by intelligently sensing the temperature outside, the preferred temperature inside and more. This would ensure that resource usage for the car would reduce. Internal sensors placed within the car will also be useful for monitoring the condition of the car, such as the element heating rate within car, the mileage derived and more. These sensors will intimate the customer as to when a service is due, especially if the car performance on road declines, the sensors (if the user or the customer permits) could also push data via network to authorized car service stations and make a request for best quote based on user requirements. In this way most of the car maintenance work is reduced for the customer.
The sensors on the care can be radar application specific sensors or in the form of ultrasonic sensors. They help with different functionalities such as lane departure warning, parking assistance, self-parking, cross traffic alert and more (Conner, 2011). The use of self-driving cars will ease the road pressure on peak time and save worker’s everyday driving time. As drivers do not need to focus on road and driving, they can use their driving time to do other things, such as have breakfast on the car or read some materials about the morning meeting (Top 20 Pros, 2015). This is the basic functionality of the self-driving care. Sensors are the core mechanism behind this driving functionality. Self-driving cars will also reduce the rate of road accidents. Because most of car crash accidents are caused by human’s error, the use of self-driving car can ignore the influence of human’s error. Road system will become more efficient and safety. It can be seen that self-driving car can allow employees doing more tasks during driving time and can help the city become a more efficient place.
