Fully Autonomous Cars 'Not Even Close'

Fully Autonomous Cars 'Not Even Close'

Home / News | posted on 13 01 2017

Gill Pratt, CEO of the Toyota Research Institute, said that the industry is "not even close" to launching fully autonomous Level 5 cars. He added that it "will take decades to have a significant portion of US cars operate at Level 4 autonomy or higher".

Talking at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, Pratt argued that although on-road reliability for autonomous vehicles had reached an impressive level of millions of miles, it would be necessary to actually reach a level of reliability which is a million times better, a trillion miles, in order to achieve autonomy safely.
