People in Japan are not only scared of electronics, they’re also scared of each other.
The world’s most populous nation has the third-highest per capita incidence of chronic diseases and has a huge public health deficit.
And while the country is trying to fix some of those problems, there are other problems, too.
Japan’s electronics industry has experienced a renaissance in recent years thanks to the introduction of smart phones, which have made many of Japan’s older devices more accessible to a wider audience.
But the rise of the smartphone has also made the country a leader in the development of self-driving vehicles, the first of its kind in the world.
A self-powered car is a hybrid vehicle that uses an electric motor and sensors to navigate, avoiding obstacles and safely merging into the traffic.
The technology is a boon for automakers, but has caused concern among some people.
For example, a 2014 study in the journal JAMA Neurology found that about 30% of people in Japan were concerned that autonomous vehicles might not be safe enough.
Other studies have found that drivers are more likely to get into accidents when using smartphones.
Japanese authorities are working to address concerns.
In May, the government announced that it is introducing new regulations that would require carmakers to include self-steering technology in all autonomous vehicles sold in the country by 2020.
The move is part of a broader push to make autonomous vehicles safer, but it comes at a cost: The cost of developing the technology for self-drive cars is expected to double, with automakers expected to spend at least $4.2 billion on self-infotainment systems.
The costs for selfdrive car makers are expected to grow by another $2.6 billion in 2021, according to the Tokyo-based research firm Autonomous Vehicles International.
Autonomous vehicle companies are also scrambling to overcome concerns about safety.
“I am not aware of any company that has been able to demonstrate the safety and the usability of autonomous driving technologies without putting their own lives at risk,” said Yuji Iida, chief executive of Toyota Motor Corp. and a self-styled futurist who was recently appointed to the board of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Autonomy, which is being marketed as a technology that will enable people to move about freely without human oversight, is also viewed with skepticism in some parts of the tech world.
Some experts argue that the technology could be used for nefarious purposes.
And many experts say that a driverless car may not be so safe after all.
In Japan, the self-driven car industry is also facing pressure from the government, which wants to regulate autonomous vehicles to prevent them from becoming a threat to public safety.
In February, the Japanese Ministry of Transportation said it would impose a fine of up to $500,000 on any company or corporation that knowingly fails to meet safety standards for autonomous vehicles.
That same month, the ministry announced that the government will launch a study on autonomous vehicles, which could include analyzing how autonomous cars can be used in Japan.
The plan is to launch the study in 2021 and then issue regulations in 2022.
But even if the government’s new regulations don’t go far enough to protect the public, it could force manufacturers to rethink their plans.
“The technology that the Japanese government wants to introduce in 2020, and the government itself is going to set regulations on the 2020s, is very difficult for companies to do,” said Yoshiyuki Ogawa, a researcher at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
Ogawa added that manufacturers may not have to completely rethink their designs for self drive cars, but the technology needs to be better in order to be considered safe.
Some Japanese manufacturers are hoping that self-healing materials, which are used in self-flying vehicles, will help ease the worries.
Japanese companies are already working on self repairing, and there is hope that the materials will become cheaper and easier to use.
But Yoshiyasu Ito, a professor at the Institute of Industrial Engineering at the University of Tokyo, said it is important to keep in mind that self repair is a very new technology and that it may take several years to get it to a level where it can be done safely.
“The industry is still at the early stages, so we don’t know if it will be feasible for the government to regulate,” said Ito.
“But if it does, I believe that the industry will be able to adapt quickly.”
