Road map towards fully automatic driving

Passenger cars have now more and more advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as lateral and longitudinal control and parking assistance through the use of drive-by-wire technologies and advanced sensors. How far can we go before a fully autonomous driving can be considered? Perhaps never if we cannot solve the problem of mixing autonomous vehicles with manual ones or if we do not have dedicated infrastructures. On the other hand, dedicated structures are now arriving through fully automatic vehicles for cargo, for mass transport and for low speed, local automatic transport. We will examine how all these approaches which are based on the same technologies can meet to bring fully autonomous driving to the general public in order to solve the problems of safety, capacity and quality of life.
