Write a paper explaining what a mindset is and why having a specific mindset will impact the agility of a business. Within your paper, detail the internal/external locus of control and how the locus of control impacts the entrepreneurial mindset.
Currently there are six major companies working on driverless cars: Volvo, Google, Uber, Tesla, Ford and BMW. We will take a closer look at Google car. The Google car has eight different sensors continuously feeding information to the computers. The most noticeable is the black cone at the top, which is a single rotating LIDAR. It uses 32 or 64 lasers to measure the distance between the car and surrounding objects, in turn producing a real time 3D map with a maximum range of 200m. This allows the car to avoid any obstacles around it. A camera pointing through the wind screen not only helps with this, but can also read road signs and detect traffic lights. A bumper-mounted radar observes vehicles behind and in front of the car. A rear-mounted aerial intercepts GPS signals and the ultrasonic sensor in one of the rear wheels detects all movement of the car. Altimeters, gyroscopes and a tachometer are found on the inside of the vehicle. These give more detailed measurements of where the car is located and the change in place. All of these sensors working together produce a car that can do the same as, or even overcome manually operated cars. Autonomous cars are much safer than manually operated cars, much like the Hyperloop, because there is no risk of human error. However, in May the first death occurred in an autonomous car, the Tesla S model after being switched into auto piolet mode. The car’s computer was unable to differentiate a white lorry from the brightly lit sky and did not trigger the brakes. Driverless cars are still much safer than manually driven cars, however a poll conducted by Morning Consult from January 29-31, 2016, shows that the majority of people believe that they are not safe enough. This is because people are cautious of giving all their trust to a car and feel vulnerable as their life is not in their own hands. The Google car is an example of this because it has no steering wheel or pedals, therefore the passenger has no control over the vehicle. Aside from the public’s fear of autonomous cars, there are many positive outcomes of a driverless world. A Telegraph study in 2011 discovered the average Briton spends 10 hours a week driving. This sums up to three weeks spent behind the windscreen. In an autonomous car, this time could be used so much more productively; reading, working, socializing and the list goes on. The time taken to travel from a to b would be significantly lower in areas where driverless cars are in the high majority. Autonomous vehicles can ride closely together and at the same speed due to sharp sensors, therefore dramatically decreasing congestion and traffic. In areas where only self-driving cars are on the roads, there would be no need for traffic lights, or even speed limits. According to Eno Transportation, autonomous cars in high proportions could result in a behavior called platooning, where the vehicles would drive in a line one directly behind the other. Only the vehicle at the front would experience large air friction forces. The vehicles behind are sheltered from the ai>GET ANSWER
