I KID YOU NOT

Women are better at operating driverless cars than men, according to a new study.

Researchers at Newcastle University found that women display faster reaction times, more control over the wheel and are better at taking back control of the vehicle when needed.

Dr Shuo Li, an intelligent transport systems expert at Newcastle University, said: “Women often do not realise how good they are at driving, but our results found they actually perform slightly better.”

The emergence of driverless cars allows people to completely disengage from driving and perform other non-driving related tasks, but at times, they may need to retake control over the vehicle.

For the study, 76 participants - 33 women and 43 men - drove a simulator, which mimics retaking control of a driverless vehicle to observe and compare performance.

The simulator gave participants 20 seconds to take back control of the driverless vehicle to spot and avoid crashing into a parked car.

Results found that compared to men, women were less likely to be hasty during takeovers, had slightly faster reaction times and had had a more stable operation of the steering wheel.

On average, women took 2.45 seconds to retake control over the car compared to men who took 2.63 seconds.

For moving out of the way of a parked car, women took an average of 13.52 seconds to notice and change lanes, while men took 13.76 seconds.

Previous studies into driverless cars focused on attitudes and perspectives, with women more likely to be concerned about their use, but research into how different genders use the vehicles is still limited.

The study’s authors say their research could help inform the design and therefore usability of driverless cars, with the lack of such knowledge potentially reducing their benefits.


Professor Roberto Palacin, acting head of Newcastle University’s School of Engineering, said: “Our research can inform software engineers so that the automated vehicle can be adapted for the user, in the same way, that people have different ringtones on their mobile phone, or might prefer to have it in dark mode.


“This could include perhaps your safety needs in terms of reaction times. In the same way, you can change the size of your font on your phone if you don’t see very well, if I was buying a car for my mother, who was 70, then there could be a mode for that.”

The research team added that neglecting the impact of gender could potentially lead to serious issues in terms of transport equality, in turn furthering other forms of gender inequality.

The study was published in the journal Scientific Reports.

So Dr Shuo Li, an intelligent transport systems expert at Newcastle University, said:  women are better drivers of Driverless Cars .Did the Eminent Dr not mean Semi autominous cars they are NOT driverless at all .Some expert he cannot even recognize the Subject matter correctly ?

It's an old myth perpetuated by insurance companies to get female apes  driving at a time wen most didn't  .... insurance companies offered   the lady apes a large discount on the pretence they wer less of a risk.... the objective of the insurance companies  was to    double ther revenue with 2 car families

Fact of the matter is lady apes  are crap drivers
Don't know left from right and have no spacial awareness as ther not programmed to be territorial..
As regards reactions ....most female ape sports stars are invariably lezbbo wit excessive  male ape  hormones ....male ape drivers downfall is aggression and autonomous cars will be the norm someday thank fuk reducing accidents to miniscule numbers .....
If I was on an airplane to toramalanus an a lady ape captain came over the tannoy ....ide crap meself an instantly become
