Automated Cars To End Traffic Jams

The BBC is reporting that a car developed by the University of California could help end traffic jams, one big catch. It’s fully automated.

A new “self-driving car” developed in America has the ability to drastically cut traffic jams by increasing the flow of traffic up to three times, its developers have told the BBC.

The car, which features revolutionary “drive-by-wire” systems which means the wheels are no longer connected to the steering wheel, was built by the University of California, Riverside’s College of Engineering Center for Environmental Research and Technology (Ce-Cert) and Dotmobil, a French company.

This could be the next generation of smart cars to help make it nearly impossible to get stuck in traffic or get in car accidents caused by human error. I wonder if this technology would make it possible for the disable to drive?
