Natural Progression: While the Automotive Industry Is Eager for Vehicles to be Automated as Quickly as Possible, the Process Involves Step-by-Step Evolution

This article describes why the United States is a natural market for automated highway driving functions and outlines the steps that are a part of the natural evolution to autonomous vehicles. Topics covered include sensor fusion systems that combine data from a camera and radar; automated highway driving involving changing lanes; automotive-grade sensors that support advanced semi-automated driving functions (video cameras and radar); finding equilibrium between slowly evolving regulations and the New Car Assessment Programs (NCAPs), which quickly incorporate new tests and requirements; and the impact of these changes on the field of automotive engineering. One sidebar describes the S-Cam 4 family of cameras that have been developed to support semi-automated driving functions such as highway driving assist and traffic jam assist.
