Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) have gained significant attention in recent years. However, the underlying technologies that support them, including 5G and digital infrastructure are less understood. AVs are also known as self-driving cars, autonomous cars, driverless cars or robot cars.
Autonomous driving can be classified into six different levels. From traditional vehicles being Level 0, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) vehicles being Level 1 and 2, to fully autonomous vehicles being Level 5.
As vehicles increasingly shift from Level 1 to Level 5 autonomy, more decision-making capability will be given to the vehicle. In turn, the data consumed by the vehicle will increase, as the level of autonomy increases, because it has to make more decisions.
