How automakers are learning to combat the small things

Self driving cars used to be a thing of the future, still far off and unattainable. However, that technology has accelerated in the last decade and self driving cars are no longer something to be dreamt about. Automakers are moving towards trying to get automated cars on the road but have come across a few road blocks that were unanticipated. Car sickness is an issue that they may have overlooked initially but are now trying to figure out ways to help combat the issue.

Recent allegations against all three of Tesla’s electric vehicles have caused the U.S. government’s auto safety agency to take a more in-depth look at the automakers cars. The allegations state that the electric vehicles can accelerate suddenly on their own. This can cause hazardous road conditions for the drivers and other cars on the road. About 500,000 cars will be affected by the investigation.
