Marketing Of Self-Driving Cars Still Faces A Bumpy Road 

While autonomous cars still have a way to go in a range of areas, they have no problem in continuing to grab headlines.Another Tesla car crashed in China while in ‘autopilot’ mode, with the driver saying that he was sold on the idea of the car being self-driving by salespeople.Tesla confirmed the car was in autopilot mode, which gives control of steering and breaking in certain conditions. Tesla says that the driver’s hands are supposed to stay on the steering wheel when in this mode.This Beijing accident, in which the Tesla hit a vehicle parked off the road, with no one hurt, follows a widely reported recent fatal accident by a Tesla driver using the car’s autopilot system. In that accident, neither autopilot nor the driver noticed the white side of the tractor trailer against a brightly lit sky, so the brake was not applied, according to Tesla.The impact caused the Model S to pass under the trailer, with the bottom of the trailer impacting the windshield of the Model S, killing the driver.As more self-driving or semi-self-driving cars take to the roads, a flood of issues is coming along for the ride.These issue will have to be resolved before marketing and advertising is allowed to play any kind of significant role inside vehicles, in terms of interacting with a driver who isn’t driving.There ultimately may be multiple ways for marketers to interact with those in cars down the road.
