The systems will be able to independently form the safest routes for travel, and at the same time the drivers will act as a control link. Additionally, smart systems will eliminate the risks associated with car theft.

Despite the desire to keep up with the development of technology, the inhabitants of the country do not have a sufficient level of interest in this transition. One of the reasons for the slowdown in progress is the low level of income of the population, as well as the lack of conditions for the operation of equipment of this level..
