Transportation is about to get a technology-driven reboot. The details are still taking shape, but future transport systems will certainly be connected, data-driven and highly automated. The US Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) has defined a scale to describe the autonomous capabilities that self-driving cars have -- i.e., their levels of automation. Also: Can humans get a handle on AI? Level 5 is full automation, which allows self-driving cars to operate with no human assistance. Google and Uber, among others, are aiming to develop level 5 cars, but many consider this to be a moonshot.
