AV Articles

Automated vehicle (AV) technologies are electronic systems that affect the control of the longitudinal and lateral movement of a vehicle, acceleration, geolocation, braking, sensing via cameras, sensors, radar, and lidar demanding a high degree of precision. They are nuanced and complex, requiring an integrated relationship between hardware and software. In these technologies, vehicle software is as necessary – if not more important – than vehicle hardware. Moreover, AVs cannot require connected vehicle technology to function since they must be able to navigate the road network autonomously.
