What defines an autonomous vehicle? In this chapter the authors will try to answer this question and formulate the limitations of driver assistance systems as well as for—conditionally—autonomous vehicles . First a short summary of the levels of automation as provided by the society of automotive engineers (SAE) is given with a consideration on the individual levels and their implication. Following this, an overview of modern-day control techniques for advanced driver assistance systems such as cooperative adaptive cruise control is given and the requirements for automated driving are formulated. The chapter finishes with an outlook on automated driving and a discussion on the requirements and safety of automated driving.
