The transformation of automobiles into safe, dependable, autonomous vehicles has already started with the increasing availability and capabilities of advanced driver-assistance systems today. The Auto research program attempts to identify and define the technology required to enable the revolutionary transition from driver assistance to fully autonomous vehicles. In particular autonomous vehicles need to be better than their human counterparts in perceiving and understanding their environment, making the appropriate decisions, as well as, remaining safe and dependable in all driving conditions. To make this dream a reality, this program targets orders of magnitude improvements in perception, environmental learning, dependability, safety, power and cost.
