The auto industry is currently experiencing a rapid shift to autonomous vehicles (AV). This evolution is spearheaded by new, innovative technology companies that are bringing cutting-edge automotive platforms to the market at an unprecedented pace. Currently, vehicles on the road are equipped with the ability to maneuver on their own on highways while in the presence of a human driver. The next logical step in the race to autonomy is self-driving capability in an urban setting -- first with a driver and eventually with humans acting solely as passengers. However, driving in cities is an exponentially more difficult problem to solve than maneuvering on highways.
