Advanced driver assistance systems market to treble in 10 years

The global market for advanced driver assistance systems is set to treble over the next decade, according to figures seen by Robotics and Automation News

Although the numbers are from two different reports, they provide a broad overview of a market which is set for exponential growth.

The overwhelming majority of vehicles on the road today do not have ADAS, while new cars are mostly produced with some elements of ADAS included.

This means that the scope for growth is huge. Moreover, the technology essentially transforms entirely mechanical machines into intelligent machines, or robots on wheels.

SAE’s full list of levels for autonomous vehicles

This is the full list of SAE’s autonomy levels:

Level 0 – No Automation: The full-time performance by the human driver of all aspects of the dynamic driving task, even when enhanced by warning or intervention systems.

Level 1 – Driver Assistance: The driving mode-specific execution by a driver assistance system of either steering or acceleration/deceleration using information about the driving environment and with the expectation that the human driver performs all remaining aspects of the dynamic driving task.

Level 2 – Partial Automation: The driving mode-specific execution by one or more driver assistance systems of both steering and acceleration/deceleration using information about the driving environment and with the expectation that the human driver performs all remaining aspects of the dynamic driving task.

Level 3 – Conditional Automation: The driving mode-specific performance by an Automated Driving System of all aspects of the dynamic driving task with the expectation that the human driver will respond appropriately to a request to intervene.

Level 4 – High Automation: The driving mode-specific performance by an Automated Driving System of all aspects of the dynamic driving task, even if a human driver does not respond appropriately to a request to intervene.

Level 5 – Full Automation: The full-time performance by an Automated Driving System of all aspects of the dynamic driving task under all roadway and environmental conditions that can be managed by a human driver.
