Google tested using GPS on the United States Roads that Remotely driven vehicle faced no trouble not even cops. so I think, 2013 GPS should be used not just for guide line, speed average and Tracking the vehicle but to the driver it also manages the speed limit, notice if any unnecessary getting off the track, incase of an accident inform and alerts the local authorities.
We have the technology, all we need to do is to improvise it, Road safety is one of the biggest issues and I think GPS can resolve it 40 to 60 percent by being Ghost-Driver ( Multi tasking computers are able to do such task and it would be better if this technology should be tested on commercial vehicles, because recently swiss bus accident which killed 22 children under the age 12 was one of the horrible news, half of the bus was smashed, if there was a GPS Ghost Driver installed least if it was human error, it wouldn’t happened, even if there was a fault in bus, GPS could have detected and stopped it, weather controlled, error checking, all the activities can be noticed why not use it for safer trips.
