Definition Edit

Automated vehicle systems are

a combination of hardware and software that performs a driving function, with or without a human actively monitoring the driving environment. Vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure technologies — that are connected vehicle technologies — rely on data sent between vehicles, road infrastructure, and personal communication devices to warn drivers and pedestrians of potential accidents.[1]
