Cars That Are Almost Self-Driving


Despite some of the news headlines you might see, we’re still a few years away from a true self-driving vehicle. However, a lot of the technology that will get us there is already available. Self-driving cars, also known as autonomous cars, are a goal of a lot of automakers and technology companies. You can’t buy one yet, but various levels of semi-autonomy are available.

If your car has features like blind spot monitoring or a rearview camera, you’ve already experienced some of the advancements that will eventually contribute to a full self-driving car. Features like lane departure warning and smart cruise control use complicated sensor networks to communicate with your car and help keep you safe. Tesla is one of the major forces in bringing such technology into the spotlight, but plenty of other automakers deserve credit for their innovations, too.
