The Future of Mobility
There are currently two different approaches to achieving fully autonomous driving. Either building up from level 1 to level 5, like many OEMs aim to do right now, or diving right into Level 4 autonomy, as currently pursued by the tech companies. What are the advantages of each approach and what is their current status? Is it possible to bridge the two approaches?
