Electric Cars And Autonomous Vehicles: The Netherlands

electric cars  and autonomous vehicles  the netherlands | Breaking News

Driving will change completely in the coming decades. We are going to drive electrically and there will be autonomous cars that communicate with each other. This is what awaits us in 2030. Many modern cars nowadays have cameras and sensors that see lines so that they keep the car in a track section, they have adaptive cruise control that automatically distances itself to predecessors and an emergency braking system that intervenes independently when a collision threatens.

Driving and the future

If that is already possible, how do we drive traffic in 2030? In an electrically powered, autonomous car, the car industry promises. Because that really comes. With a battery, cameras, GPS, Lidar - a kind of radar with laser pulses - and the unrestricted input of open data flows - regardless of the traffic situation - he will find his way flawlessly. The drive is electric. With the range (rising), the prices (decreasing) and the loading times (shorter, later also without cable) it is going well. The Paris climate agreement forces, Europe demands action. Germany, the Netherlands, France, China, Norway, the big cities; they all want to get rid of the combustion engine.

Autonomous cars offer many advantages. The question is how quickly and on what scale the transition will take place. And will we buy the EVs of tomorrow still private or will it, especially in crowded cities, become much more practical and cheaper to share with others? Shared and autonomous: it is win-win.

A few advantages:

Autonomous cars drastically reduce traffic density in cities. They theoretically make fewer accidents. They limit parking pressure by driving to charging and collection points outside the city during off-peak hours. They reduce transportation costs, drivers are unnecessary. They are deployed more intensively than the private Golf that stands still for ninety percent of the time with a costly parking permit.

Utrecht (Netherlands) 

EV gives energy back to the grid. How? Is being thought about. Authorities, consultancies, manufacturers, scientists and research institutes publish policy reports, studies and future scenarios on the conveyor belt. And pilot projects are started.

In the Lombok district of Utrecht, Robin Berg and his company LomboXnet launched the We Drive Solar shared car and energy project. Electric Renaults Zoe, locally powered by solar energy, are part of a neighborhood energy system. Non-used cars deliver via a smart charging station, which can both feed and drain batteries, their residual current to households when the sun is not shining. With 200 EVs Lombok should be self-sufficient. Technical and legal obstacles Yet there are also the necessary obstacles.

The technical and legal obstacles appear to be considerable.

Who is liable if it goes wrong? The growth of the EV market share, now less than 1 percent worldwide, stagnates due to long delivery times for the Tesla Model 3, the Opel Ampéra-e and the electric Hyundai Ioniq. We will have to wait for fully autonomous cars. The American Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) employs six levels of autonomous driving: from fully manual control (level 0) to autonomous on level 4 ('high automation', independent except under extreme conditions) and 5 ('full automation', independent Without limitations).

A level 5 car no longer needs steering and pedals. Unfortunately, in this SAE ranking, production models in 2018 are not even halfway. Nevertheless Volvo wants to have a Level 4 car on the market in 2021. Driving license will soon be a thing of the past? Is the driving license then a thing of the past twelve years? Do we drive autonomously? Robin Berg makes an important reservation.

'An autonomous car in the neighborhood will not work. Nearby is the busiest cycle path in Utrecht. As a motorist you will only pass through with bluff. "Berg also sees the added value of the autonomous car. But not in city centers. He prefers to see them on the edges of the neighborhood, where the traveler immediately has the choice of train, bus or car. For Berg, the deprivation of the holy cow is a fait accompli. 'If you ask me what the future of the car looks like; it is no longer property, people use mobility.
