If you want your new Cadillac to drive itself, get ready for your closeup. The feature lets the car drive itself on the highway, maintaining its position within the lane and maintaining a safe following distance. Cadillac is late to the party; some Tesla, Mercedes-Benz, and BMW models already do at least this much. But the Detroiter enjoys one advantage over everyone else, in that it figured out how to deal with the biggest problem in an autonomous car: You. The easiest part of the coming shift to autonomous vehicles is highway driving.

Once only seen on futuristic television shows like "The Jetsons," self-driving cars could park themselves in your garage – and do a whole lot more – sooner than you think. As automakers begin to equip cars with technologies that take control from the driver, it's not unrealistic to expect self-driving cars to hit the market within the next decade. The state of Nevada recently granted Google a license to test its self-driving car on public streets. Tomorrow, the Department of Transportation will kick off a program to pilot-test 2,800 connected vehicles in Ann Arbor with communication devices that allow them to talk to each other and avert accidents on their own. A recent report by The Center for Automotive Research and KPMG concludes that self-driving cars for consumers are inevitable – it only depends on how quickly the country can adopt the technology and infrastructure.
Artificial intelligence-powered driver monitoring systems will be a key stepping stone for the transition from driver assistance to fully autonomous driving. That was a central message from Bosch at CES 2020, where the automotive component supplier explained how its technology will be crucial in the development of self-driving cars of the future. Bosch's system makes use of cameras and other sensors to understand a vehicle's occupants and whether the driver is paying attention. The driver's line of sight is monitored, along with their head position and blink rate. For now, this data can be used to issue alerts if the system of a regular car thinks the driver is falling asleep, or otherwise distracted - by looking down at their phone, for example.
