  3. 3.  In the last few years, artificial intelligence as a whole has become one of the most talked about concepts in the technological world.With this in mind, car companies and government agencies have taken this branch of computer sciences and tried to apply it to vehicles, with different purposes.  Intelligent vehicles, is the term used for automobiles, that have the capacity of perceiving the environment around them, and acting in response to that environment, without much help from a human being.
  4. 4.  Within the wide array of functions that intelligent vehicles cover, automated driving is probably the most profitable and interesting area.  Google’s roboticToyota Prius, produced in collaboration with tech company Urmson, is a functional example of automated vehicles.
  5. 5.  The car works with sensors that recreate the environment in a digital 3D map.  Once the map has been created, the car’s computer combines that, with high- resolution maps, and cameras in the bumpers, to avoid obstacles.  The system is all guided by a GPS, in a way similar to remote controlled cars.
  6. 6.  Level 0:The driver completely controls the vehicle at all times.  Level 1: Individual vehicle controls are automated, such as electronic stability control or automatic braking.  Level 2: At least two controls can be automated in unison, such as adaptive cruise control in combination with lane keeping.  Level 3: The driver can fully cede control of all safety-critical functions in certain conditions.The car senses when conditions require the driver to retake control and provides a "sufficiently comfortable transition time" for the driver to do so.  Level 4: The vehicle performs all safety-critical functions for the entire trip, with the driver not expected to control the vehicle at any time. As this vehicle would control all functions from start to stop, including all parking functions, it could include unoccupied cars. In the United States, the National HighwayTraffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has established an official classification system.
  7. 7.  The idea of self-driven cars has floated in the technological world, for more than 70 years, since General Motor’s Futurama exhibit, in which futuristic concepts where, such as this one, were first thrown around.  By 1950, the first primitive scale, and real-size, models were created, one of which featured coils that would recognize another object’s presence and react by steering towards a different direction.
  8. 8.  "The cart successfully crossed a chair-filled room without human intervention in about five hours.” In 1979, the first real step towards was taken in the journey towards intelligent vehicles, with the Stanford Cart.  Even though it is now relatively primitive, compared to the options we have now, the Stanford Cart, presented a thought process similar to the one we use now. It had image processing capabilities, that combined with simple algorithms allowed the vehicle to move around the chair-filled room.
  9. 9.  Parking sensors, automatic night lights.  Remote access to car’s performance: basic checks and simple analysis will be offered with the Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive.  Digital DriveStyle App. Allows access to key functionalities of the smartphone in the vehicle. Developed with road safety in mind and is designed to avoid distracting drivers during their journey.
  10. 10.  Google Glass could be aligned with a car’s sat-nav system to offer complete ‘door-to- door’ navigation. When the driver gets out of his car, Google’s spectacle-style device takes over guidance to their final destination.
  11. 11.  “The car learns, adapts, predicts and interacts with the driver,”  “Autonomous driving won’t happen overnight. It will need legislation, more detailed map data, more computing power and an intensive social debate.”  "We are working full speed to introduce autonomous driving functions into the cars that come to the market in the next years.”  -ThomasWeber, Mercedes-Benz’s research and development boss.
  12. 12.  “driver safety above all” Open Automotive Alliance  “luxurious interiors, super-advanced crash- avoidance technology and drastically reduced carbon emissions” – Forbes, Cars you’ll be driving in 10 years
