Automakers are rolling out features en route to self-driving cars
The next phase of autonomous driving is already in development. Audi said its cars would be capable of "highly automated driving" at speeds up to 40 mph, without driver input, within three to four years.
Cadillac said vehicles in its 2017 lineup would offer customers an advanced driver-assist technology called Super Cruise, which "will offer customers an automated driving experience that includes hands-off lane following, braking and speed control in certain highway driving conditions."
Koslowski, the analyst, estimated that, by 2018, 20% of new vehicles would be "self-aware," or capable of making intelligent decisions about speed, direction and collision avoidance — faster, and more accurately, than their human drivers.
