The earliest forms of automated driving
are here now
Today, motor vehicles are increasingly capable of monitoring their surroundings and responding automatically to roadway situations that present safety risks, thanks to driving automation technology that uses sensors like cameras, radar and LiDAR to interpret data from the environment.
Technological advancements are continuing and many companies are developing vehicles with higher levels of driving automation. Highly automated vehicles (HAVs) promise to improve road safety while saving consumers time and money. Such systems may also dramatically expand mobility and facilitate better land use in urban settings.
