Dependability is the key driver for the megatrend towards autonomous driving
The future car is fully connected and always online. It is all-electric and autonomous. To make this a reality, it takes both – technology and trust. All levels of automated driving, but especially higher levels such as Level 3, 4, 5, require the driver‘s and passengers’ trust for its adoption. Car occupants and other road users need to trust in cars that enable safe and flawless automated driving in any environment, regardless of the roads’ type and condition, the weather or the age of the car. They also want to trust in the fact that automated cars are secure.
Especially, higher levels of automated driving systems are the basis for trust only if they feature high availability of safety and cybersecurity. Only then will they be perceived as “dependable” – and thus be fully trusted.
