The COVID-19 Outbreak & Robotic Cars

Self-driving cars have been developed over the last decade or so by companies like @Tesla and others, but the wake had recently slowed down with slow adoption. Now with this virus outbreak however, this technology is quickly resurging as people around the world are trying to find ways to perform transportation services (such as ride-hailing or food and medicine delivery) while limiting human contact. This outbreak has shown us that robotic cars are indeed useful, more as a necessity than a luxury. In additional to reducing road accidents and optimizing traffic, these vehicles can also come to the aid of humans separated by quarantine or any similar natural disaster – may God forbid.
