The Autonomy Timetable
Self-driving cars are coming, but we won’t see significant numbers of them for about 10 years, says Pete Kelly, managing director of LMC Automotive.
The industry describes fully autonomous vehicles as having Level 5 capability, meaning they can operate with no outside help under all conditions that a human could handle. Today’s most advanced cars operate at Level 2, indicating they can steer, brake and accelerate but require constant human monitoring.
Kelly agrees that technology to make autonomous driving possible is evolving quickly. But he says that cost, complexity and infrastructure will temper the pace of adoption
