Driver-assistance systems such as lane-departure warning, parking assist and collision avoidance have been welcomed by drivers who deal with the diverse hazards found on today’s roads. Current Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are capable of performing basic driving tasks autonomously, setting the scene for progress toward fully autonomous driving in the future.

The road to autonomous driving depends on development in three key technology areas. These are sensing, which includes radar, LiDAR and visual monitoring using cameras, high-definition mapping, and localization that accurately pinpoints the vehicle within its surroundings.
