A look at what’s required for semi-autonomous and fully autonomous vehicles.
Anti-lock braking systems, air bags, traction control, and electronic stability control are just a few examples of typical safety systems in current production cars. Next-generation safety systems, known as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, or ADAS, are setting up the path for semi- and fully autonomous cars of the near future. Some ADAS technology uses a combination of cameras and radar to sense, identify, and alert drivers of potential collision with other vehicles, pedestrians, or other objects, and may, in some cases, proactively steer or brake the car to avoid collision to minimize injury or damage. Other types of ADAS technology can automate common driving operations with the objective of improving safety, such as lane changing or traffic jam assistance, thus providing semi-autonomous driving options.
