Significance and conditions


Automated driving — the future of mobility

Today, efficient driver assistance systems are already helping drivers reach their destination in a safer, more relaxed manner. In the future, these systems will tackle increasingly complex driving situations and assist the driver — or even act independently. Each innovation brings us a little closer to accident-free, automated driving.

Automated driving will change the future of mobility. There will be fewer accidents, fewer traffic jams and lower harmful emissions. Instead of steering the vehicle ourselves, we will calmly leaf through a newspaper, prepare ourselves for meetings, or catch up on our email. The dream of self-driving vehicles may become a reality in the near future, as the technology needed is already in existence today.
