Based on their advanced features, self-driving vehicles are expected to increase the mobility for those with disabilities, reduce the amount and severity of accidents, enhance the utility of time on travel and reduce the air pollution. On the other hand, this technology brings safety and security challenges, which need to be addressed before their mass implementation in roads. The purpose of this study is to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of autonomous vehicle technology through providing comparative analysis. This paper also presents an overview of recent research on self-driving vehicle safety issues and the shortcomings of this technology in a broader sense. As a result of the study, suggestions about the future of self-driving vehicle will be provided for planners and policy-makers.
