What is Autonomous Driving?

Autonomous driving also commonly referred to as 'self-driving' is when a vehicle is capable of sensing its environment and moving with little to no human input.

Will Autonomous Driving Improve Safety

Autonomous driving could very well change the way we use transportation. There are extensive laws and regulations put on by the government to prevent accidents and injuries. After all, self-driving cars are all operated by technology, and as we learn and continue to work more on these vehicles, we can further improve its role in the car industry.

Levels of Driving Automation

Level 0 - No Automation
The full-time performance by the human driver of all aspects of the dynamic driving task, even when "enhanced by warning or intervention systems".

Level 1 - Driver Assistance
The driving mode-specific execution by a driver assistance system of "either steering or acceleration/deceleration"

Level 2 - Partial Automation
The driving mode-specific execution by one or more driving assistance systems of both steering and acceleration/deceleration

Level 3 - Conditional Automation
The driving mode-specific performance by an automated driving system of all aspects of the dynamic driving task with the expectation that the human driver will respond appropriately to a request to intervene

Level 4 - High Automation
The driving mode-specific performance by an automated driving system of all aspects of the dynamic driving task even if a human driver does not respond appropriately to a request to intervene

Level 5 - Full Automation
The driving mode-specific performance by an automated driving system of all aspects of the dynamic driving task under all roadway and environmental conditions that can be managed by a human driver

The future of autonomous driving is upon us. I believe the safety of the public is in the hands of self-driving car manufacturers and developers who have spent years working on the technology of the future. Every day we get closer to groundbreaking technological advances in the automotive industry that will change our lives forever.
