Zero traffic fatalities. That’s the vision for the future of mobility. The self-steering car is on its way, a place where drivers can take their hands off the wheel and work or do something else en route to their destination.
The transport industry is working at top speed in this field. Safety is becoming increasingly important, and whole new markets with new players are emerging.
Plans for car safety include equipping the car body with sensors and cameras so that the driver is warned about dangerous situations, or software even takes over control of the car from time to time.
That smells like an economy-resistant business. Growing government safety regulations for manufacturers could push the trend. The airbag was yesterday, proactive safety is what’s going to be hot tomorrow.
