  1. Automatic Vehicle Control Systems Brian Williams

  2. Description • Rail-like system that cars would ride along • Communication between cars would allow for maximum flow of cars while minimizing accidents • Cars would be fairly larger than sedans and SUVs

  3. History • Patents found from 1947 • Communication technologies ranged from magnetic strips under the road to modern GPS

  4. Benefits • Decreased risk in transportation • Decrease traffic problems • Do not have to drive • Improved technology allows for more accurate and reliable communications between cars

  5. Cons • Expensive to implement • Modern technology will render the rails obsolete • Maybe some people want to drive • Larger versions (Bullet Train in Japan) are more effective means of transportation
