In the near future, people may soon put their lives into the hands of technology. Now that California, Nevada, and Florida have passed laws permitting driverless cars in September 2012, these cars will likely be extremely rampant. Many different car developers, like Google and Nisan, are developing self-driven cars. Nisan’s development of the vehicle would have outstanding new sensory technology to automatically steer the car away from pedestrians crossing the car’s path if the driver fails to do so themself.
