As the road to autonomy continues, companies such as Tesla, Uber, Ford, and Toyota are putting an increased emphasis on reaching the ultimate goal of ‘Level 5’ autonomous vehicle operation. With self-driving cars becoming closer to reality, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are rapidly becoming commonplace in modern cars. Today, an increasing number of vehicles are equipped with ADAS, featuring collision avoidance, autonomous braking in emergencies, cruise control, and self-parking. Moreover, several safety organizations are lobbying governments to mandate at least two types of ADAS in all new vehicles. As of 2022, new safety technologies such as advanced emergency braking systems (AEBS) and forward collisions warning systems (FCWS) will become mandatory in vehicles in the US and Europe.

According to her Future Market Insights biography, Mutum is an experienced market research writer and has written extensively on the industrial automation and equipment, and automotive domains.
