The automotive industry is changing, and not the way it used to.
And the key players are starting to take notice.
Automakers are now investing heavily in developing self-driving systems, and in particular, building self-parking systems for their cars.
This will bring about changes to the way car manufacturers make their cars more reliable and safer, says Joost De Bruijn, head of product strategy at carmaker Volkswagen.
The first major challenge is how to keep the car safe while it’s travelling.
A self-balancing system could reduce accidents and improve the driving experience, but the technology is still very early in its development.
“You can’t do it overnight,” he says.
To achieve this, the carmaker will use sensors and other technology to monitor the car’s speed and other driving conditions, including a steering-wheel-mounted radar.
This will enable the car to brake, swerve and keep its speed even when it’s heading towards the side of the road, where it’s harder to spot.
Another technology will let the car detect pedestrians and other vehicles and make decisions based on whether to keep moving, slow down or brake.
The car will also be able to react to pedestrians in a certain way, like adjusting its speed or stopping to avoid hitting them.
These actions could be used to steer or brake quickly, or even to stop and avoid an accident.
Autonomous cars will also have to learn how to drive themselves, and be able at the same time to manage the complex environment of urban traffic.
“I think the big players will be able learn the right way to use these systems, because we need to do the right things with these systems to protect people’s safety,” De Bruijk says.
Autopilot is the name for an AI system that uses sensors to determine the car should stop.
It is a part of a range of technologies used to keep cars safe and allow drivers to keep pace with other vehicles.
Autofill is the software that automates the manual steering.
This is a feature that has already been used by some of the big carmakers, including Tesla and BMW.
It lets drivers select a speed, throttle speed or braking rate that maximises safety while driving.
This technology can also be used for emergency braking, where the car is able to use a combination of the sensors and the braking to avoid an impact.
This is why Volvo has a software called “Autopistol”, which allows the driver to manually take control of the car in the event of a collision.
The big players in the car industry have also been working hard to create autonomous vehicles for the mass market.
The likes of Volvo and Ford are working with partners to build fully autonomous cars, while Mercedes-Benz has built the E-Class and is testing its fully autonomous SUV, the E30.
While the big automakers have been making these cars, they have struggled to find the right partner for these vehicles.
The problem has been that these cars don’t really make sense for the wider market.
For example, a car designed to be driven in the countryside will need to be able get through a city and be safe for the drivers.
The German automaker has developed a system to provide this for the E300.
This vehicle, the first in its class to be built in Germany, can travel up to 20km on a single charge and is equipped with electric motors, sensors and radar.
The company is aiming to be ready by the end of 2020, and is developing a full-fledged system that will be ready for the end-of-the-year market.
The next step is to develop the systems for the cars in other countries.
That means developing an intelligent steering system, which can be used in urban areas and on the roads where traffic is dense.
“That will help us get our cars to the right level of safety in a way that doesn’t lead to a collision,” says De Bruij.
