Definition[edit | edit source]

Driverless vehicles are

motor vehicles in which internal vehicle systems, instead of a human driver, operate all functions as the vehicle moves on public roadways. They can take the form of passenger cars, large or small trucks, buses, or other modes of motorized ground transportation. They may transport either cargo or human passengers, or both, or neither.[1]

Overview[edit | edit source]

"Some of the same technologies used in driverless vehicles provide automated features in conventional vehicles. But automated vehicles are not necessarily driverless. Already available automated, semiautonomous, or self-driving technologies assist human drivers who control all or some of the vehicles' operations. Familiar automated technologies currently assist drivers with specific vehicle functions, such as braking or parking, but continue to need a human driver to control general vehicle operations."[2]
