The Driverless car is closer than you think
There are different types of autonomous vehicles and the progress being made toward putting them on the road. For example, Level 4 autonomy is described as an automobile that can drive itself across the country under the “controlled conditions” of the US interstate highway system. The ongoing development of Level 4 autonomous technology tracks closely with several emerging trends, including electric-powered vehicles, mobile connectivity (expected to jump with the advent of 5G networks) and smart cities. It is clear that autonomous vehicle development is accelerating; and that soon Level 4 vehicles will be available for commercial use.
