Analysts Machina Research conducted a study, the results of which suggested that if in the near future there will be many ways of unmanned vehicles, it will lead to an increase in the number and length of traffic jams, as well as to serious disruptions in the mobile networks. Given that Google is going to begin testing self-propelled machines this summer, the forecast can be confirmed after a year or two.
The Machina Research believe that the number of “smart” cars will soon begin to grow rapidly. Colleagues analysts, the company Gartner, Forecast Machina Research confirms, noting that after five years of any type of wireless connection to work will be used in every fifth car.
Researchers believe that at peak times, when a lot of cars standing in traffic jams, load on the mobile communication network will be seriously increased. Drivers ‘smart’ cars and machines running programs, autopilots, are busy looking for alternative routes, and passengers – online games. Besides congestion, these actions users can increase the complexity of the navigation systems installed in cars to disable anti-collision system.
By “intelligent” machines meant transportation, which communicates over the WAN using specialized equipment and software, or via a smartphone car owners. Furthermore, “intelligent” cars can exchange messages with each other by transmitting information, which is obtained from various sensors, transformed and analyzed.
