Do you want to go for a romantic dinner on a Saturday night? If so, then you will possibly use some sort of smartphone app to find available tables or perhaps a business that delivers to your house. Meanwhile, you see an online advertisement that offers you for a free ride to the restaurant itself. What would you choose? Obviously, most people will go with the offer of a free ride, meaning the other restaurants will ultimately lose some customers.

Low-cost self-driving cars

Such interesting scenarios can become real in the upcoming era of smart cars.

According to experts, the cost of the autonomous vehicles will be so low that business corporations and even small business owners can use them to offer free-rides to their customers.

The most important and cost worthy phenomenon in public transport is the drivers themselves. When no one needs to be paid, then surely the cost of the entire operation will be reduced significantly. Hence, the self-driving cars will offer much lower prices as compared to public transport.

Moreover, there will be a huge number of businesses that will be wishing to make the most of it.
