What Are The Different Levels Of Self-Driving Cars?

The levels of driving automation explained. The Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE) sets what have come to be the most globally recognized standards for driving automation and these are divided into six levels of driving automation :

Level 0 Driving Automation

This is the lowest level of driving automation. The driver is in control of the car from the start to the end of the journey. Driver support features are limited to warnings and momentary assistance. Examples include automatic emergency braking and lane departure warnings.

Level 1 Driving Automation

The driver is in control of the car from the start to the end of the journey. The partly automated driving support system is limited to brake or acceleration support, but not both. Examples include lane centring or adaptive cruise control.

Level 2 Driving Automation

The driver is in control of the car from the start to the end of the journey. The partly automated driving support system is limited to both brake and acceleration support. Examples include lane centring simultaneously with adaptive cruise control.

Level 3 Driving Automation

The driver is not responsible for driving the car when the specified automated driving features are engaged, but the driver must reassume responsibility for driving when the features request it. Examples include traffic jam chauffeur.

Level 4 Driving Automation

The driver is not responsible for driving the car when the specified automated driving features are engaged and the driver is not expected to take over driving when the automated driving features are in use, but the automated driving features can only operate under limited conditions and will not engage unless all of these conditions are met. When they are met, the Level 4 vehicle is driving independently. Pedals and a steering wheel are not always found in Level 4 vehicles. Examples include a local driverless taxi.

Level 5 Driving Automation

The driver is not responsible for driving the car when the specified automated driving features are engaged and the driver is not expected to take over driving when the automated driving features are in use. The automated driving features can be used in all conditions everywhere. The Level 5 car is one hundred percent driverless. It does not require a driver at any time.
