Driverless car risks making manufacturers liable for car accident compensation by Simon Jacobs-6647

A car has recently gone on display at London's Science Museum that could eventually have a dramatic impact on the nature of car accident compensation claims.

It is a driverless car called Lux, developed by German designers using the body and engine of a standard VW Passat. It operates independently of a remote control, instead mapping its course with twin 'laser eyes' which are mounted beneath the front headlights. A third 'laser eye' scans the road behind the car.

Stepping from the shadows of science-fiction
It is a development that once belonged to the realms of science-fiction imagining. Remember Kitt from Knightrider, Herbie from the eponymously titled films and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang [insert italics for film titles] the adventurous flying car? Now, Lux, the Latin for light, can be added to that list of driverless capable vehicles. The only difference is that Lux is grounded in science-fact.

Though mass production of driverless cars is still forecast to take a number of years, as the necessary technology needs further tweaking and development, the spectre (perhaps literally) of the driverless car appearing on our roads in the not too distant future is a very real possibility. This will certainly raise some interesting questions in the world of personal injury solicitors.

If and when driverless cars eventually arrive on our roads, who will accept liability for car accident compensation claims? One can only imagine that it will be the manufacturers themselves, which provokes the question of how seriously they are taking the enterprise, for they will hardly want to accept the costly liability no win, no fee car accident compensation claims.

Considering the inevitable reluctance of car manufacturers to accept liability, could driverless cars just be a PR exercise with no ultimate aim? Wealthy car manufacturers will certainly have no intention of shooting themselves in the foot.

The race is on but there's no one under the crash helmet
So far Lux has only been tested at a speed of 15mph but on 3rd and 4th of November, that is due to change when it takes part in a driverless car race. The event will take place in realistic urban traffic conditions.

During the event, cars will reach speeds of up to 30mph. Cars will be programmed with a satellite map of the 60 mile route together with a checklist of places they have to visit along the way. There will be no human interference with the cars once the starting gun has fired. If a car accident claims any of the entrants along the way, there will be humanly driven trackers on hand to clear up. There is a 1.5 million prize on offer for the winner.

A spokesperson for IBEO, the company who have developed the laser sensor technology in the car, said, "Much of the technology in this car will be available in standard cars within a couple of years. It will be up to Governments to decide whether the cars will be legally allowed to be driverless. But the technology exists now to do it."

What the future may hold
Bearing in mind that the vast majority of current car accident compensation claims are the result of bad or negligent driving on the part of a human driver, the question of potential liability is a very real one. There are other less serious, though equally curious questions aroused by driverless technology.

Could you send your driverless car up to the local shop with a neatly handwritten note to buy you breakfast on a Sunday morning? Will it be possible for hackers to interfere with the laser technology and maliciously cause car accidents? As there could be no foreseeable, legal or moral, impediment to travelling in a driverless car when intoxicated, surely drunk-driving accidents would become a thing of the past.

And while Lux's reaction time is impressively calculated at less than 100 milliseconds, are we ready to put our lives in the hands of technology risking a fatal car accident or serious personal injury over which we have no control? I imagine that the experience of most people in using wayward, periodically crashing home computers hardly instills a sense of optimism in the infallibility of technology.

What about petrol heads and boy racers? They will not easily forsake their positions behind the wheel - an experience many find liberating and empowering.

What about the repercussions for road rage? It is not hard to envisage a scene where a frustrated owner of an erratically performing driverless car, at his wits' end, rears up from the passenger seat, gets out of the car and angrily kicks his car into shortwiring submission.

I think it is safe to say that however developed the technology for driverless cars, unless manufacturers can absolve themselves of any potential liability for car accident compensation claims, it will be a while before we are all sitting back relaxing as we let the car do the driving.

CAR SCIENCE HOW TO DRIFT

How do I hook up my home made generator to my Car? Science Fair help!?

I need to know how to hook up a generator to something that will spin an axle. Basically, I will hook up two charged copper wires to a small machine that will cause a bar to spin... What sort of machine will make it spin? It only has to be small. I'm really looking for sources here... if not, then best info gets 10 points, but first best source.

A little confused as you've asked how to hook it it up to a car. The car (engine) would be the machine driving the generator, and with the car it's certainly not a small arrangement

arrange two parallel rollers fairly close together so they are free to spin free of the ground. The rollers and the bearings would have to take the cars weight. If it's a portable arrangement there'll need to be a frame, and that too will have to take the weight of a car. The wheels are then placed so that DRIVEN wheels rest between the two rollers, with their axii parrallel to that of the rollers. The car(and device frame) is tied down to fixed points, preventing movement along the ground/with respect to each other. when the car is put in gear with the engine running, the rollers will turn. Not difficult to use a belt drive to get power to the shaft of you're generator.Use different size pulley wheels to adjust the rpm ratios to match how fast the car wheels turns (at idle) with the speed your generator needs.

It's quite similar to a rolling road. Following should provide some pictures that you'd find useful.
eg http://www.northamptonmotorsport.com/default.asp?id=16
(two rollers make it easier to keep the wheels in contact with the rollers, but it's the best I could find)

If you're not "reving" the engine hard/your generator offers a tiny load, it might be possible to drive the car up a single ramp (car will tilt) and then on to a pair of rollers that contact only a single driven wheel. The other wheel would still be resting on the ground, and will tend not to turn (without the car moving forward) . The car's differential should then transfer the power/rotation on to the wheel resting on the roller.(somewhat akin to wheel spin) Be VERY CAREFUL if doing this though, because the forces will be unbalanced between the different sides of the car, and so it might very well attempt to slew the front of the car sideways or kick the rollers out sideways/under the car.

--
Re-read. You want an electric motor, not a means of connecting your generator to a prime mover.
Simplest if you generator is an alternator and produces AC. Then all you need is an induction motor, which will rotate a speed slightly less than the frequency of the electrical voltage supplied. No need for slip rings either, which could be a big advantage for a DIY project.

Alternatively if you want to use a DC motor, you'll need understandably DC voltage. If you're generating AC you can rectify it, using diodes,or a bridge rectifier. A dynamo would generator DC.

YouTube is a surprisingly good resource for designing/building your own electric motors. Here's very simple DIY DC motor
