This, of course, is the first of the two possibilities for the future of transpo rtation, one that has

been fully realized in at least one highly-developed country. For the Dutch, there is no such thing as "cycling culture"; it's simply part of the urban fabric, as much a part of their cities as cars, bu ses, pedestrians... or even the architecture or weather: cyclists exist, no two ways about it. A world free of traffic congestion, in which intelligent systems watch over traf fic flow, directing vehicles accordingly and alerting them to free parking spaces may seem like a far off fantasy to all those stuck in queues of endless tail lights, yet this scenario is not confined to the realm of science fiction. Monitoring traffic flow is relatively easy, as is deducing where congestion is o ccurring and working out where to reroute cars. However, there is still a big piece missing f rom the intelligent transport puzzle a way to get information from sensors to controls centres, and from there back to cars , traffic lights, and roadside signage. We live in a world of the iPhone and mobile broadband, so it is understandably e asy to imagine that this problem of connectivity would be solved. This is not the case. Not only would it be extr emely expensive to install a mobile broadband connection into each parking space (both in terms of the elec tronics needed and the cellular subscription to be paid), but it would lead to overloading of the already stretc hed available network bandwidth to such a level that there would be no capacity left for people to access Facebo ok. Although mobile networks are great for people, they are terrible for machines. The needs and applications are so very different that there is little use in try ing to use one network for both. In fact, the reason that we don t yet have a congestion-free world is that we don t have a wireless network designed for sensors, traffic lights, or more gen erally machines . their introduction could produce several direct advantages: - Fewer traffic collisions Well i am going to talk about the Autonomous car because i consider that is the first of the two possibilities for the future of transportation, A world free of traffic congestion, in which intelligent systems watch over traf fic flow yet this scenario is not confined to the realm of science fiction. there is still a big piece missing from the intelligent transport puzzle a way t o get information from sensors to controls centres, and from there back to cars, traffic lights, and roadside signage.

but the Benefits could be very big Fewer traffic collisions, due to the autonomous system's increased reliability a nd decreased reaction time compared to human drivers. Increased roadway capacity and reduced traffic congestion due to reduced need of safety gaps and the ability to better manage traffic flow.
