Automakers and tech companies are rapidly advancing the existing levels of autonomy as well as planning for the eventual fully-automated car. With the adoption of this technology on the not-so-distant horizon, it is important to understand the technology associated with (fully) automated vehicles.
Automated vehicles are coming — probably sooner than you think. But when will we get there, and how will we get there? Here is the evolutionary path to fully automated vehicles, where today’s vehicles get automated driving features bit by bit.
Transportation has been evolving at impressive speeds and will continue to develop as we move toward fully-automated vehicles (AVs). Before the fully-automated technology is in place, we will see varying levels of autonomy and connectivity.
