Much has happened in 2022 in the autonomous vehicle market.
Among those chasing the dream of highly automated vehicles, Argo.ai dramatically dropped out of the race. Meanwhile, others like Cruise and Waymo are busy doubling down as they tout expanded footprints for their robotaxi operations.
The rest of the auto industry, however, is pivoting hard to the advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
We sat down with Phil Koopman, safety expert and associate professor at Carnegie Mellon University, to break down what happened in 2022, and what’s in store next year for ADAS development.
Listen to our podcast with Koopman here.
Koopman explains why calling Level 2 vehicles “driver assist” is a fiction. For most carmakers, it’s easy to check the box for ADAS features. But ADAS wouldn’t automatically make L2 vehicles safer.
