The vehicles with high grades have the embedded systems which are essential for the operation of a vehicle with higher standard of safety. This way road transport can significantly closer to the safety of rail and air transport because the error of driver is the main cause of the accident. The expected benefits of autonomous vehicles are their ability to observe small distances between the vehicles. Based on the information from stationary sources and vehicles running near adjust their route and speed of travel so as to minimize delays in congestions. This ensures greater continuity of driving, reducing consumption of vehicles and therefore the production of greenhouse gases from road transport. If the vehicles are capable of autonomous driving is achieved higher average speed and they have been removed the mandatory brakes within driving. It achieves the higher performance of individual vehicles and thus fewer number of vehicles on the roads and less traffic congestion.
