Software that may make auto accidents obsolete?

Volkwagen’s ID:3 car features software that may make car accidents obsolete by 2050.

Volkswagen is launching a new software operating system this year that it hopes will make car accidents obsolete by 2050.

Next generation cars will be equipped with software, sensors and processors that enable vehicles to anticipate and avoid accidents, and will keep learning new reflexes.

The new software-based vehicle operating system is being launched with Volkswagen’s new ID:3 electric car and will be continually updated as software algorithms improve, said the company spokesperson.

The ID:3 will cost about $27,000 once green car tax breaks and incentives are included when it goes on sale sometime this summer in Europe.

The VW brand expects to build 1.5 million electric cars by 2025.
