With their ability to eliminate human error and make traffic more efficient, self-driving cars could transform the way people travel. These benefits, however, come at a cost. What if a self-driving car must choose between killing its own passenger or pedestrians on the road? Will people want to buy a self-driving car that sacrifices a passenger, even if it means saving 10 other people? Should governments start regulating these types of ambiguous and difficult situations?

Truong, Hai L. Autonomous vehicle AV technology has advanced rapidly in recent years with some automated features already available in vehicles on the market. AVs are expected to reduce traffic crashes as the majority of crashes are related to driver errors, fatigue, alcohol, or drugs. However, very little research has been conducted to estimate the safety impact of AVs. This paper aims to investigate the safety impacts of AVs using a simulation-based surrogate safety measure approach.
During this time, the car is basically driving itself. Well, soon this may be possible this invention is called an autonomous car. Protalinski, The technology of autonomous car is mature enough to use. In addition, the law for autonomous car has been already passed in serval states including Florida, Nevada, and Michigan.
