This model of robots, also known as self-driving taxis, remove the need for a driver for vehicles and expand transportation. Their positive effects include increasing road safety and reducing traffic congestion. Robo-taxis reduce pollution and reduce energy consumption due to the use of electric vehicles, and do not have the main problems of electric vehicles, namely charging and range.
