The Science and Fiction of Autonomous Vehicles
To start, we need to understand what an autonomous vehicle is, and how to differentiate autonomous vehicles from other vehicles with driver-assistance systems.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) published a preliminary policy on autonomous vehicles, classifying six progressive levels of driver assistance technology. These six levels were originally classified by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Level 0 is no driver-assisted technology, with the driver performing all tasks. Currently, almost all vehicles in production are Level 1 (some minor driving assist features) or Level 2 (more advanced features like lane keeping control and adaptive cruise control). Most people are surprised to hear that the Tesla vehicles currently on the road, with their very high level of automation, are still classified as Level 2 on the SAE scale, requiring full driver monitoring and reaction for encroaching turning vehicles.
