Vehicle technology is advancing at a rapid rate, and while our vehicles may not be driving themselves the technology is moving in that direction.
Nearly every car on the road offers some form of automation — cruise control, for instance. Automakers have been introducing more and more of these features on newer vehicles. This technology can result in positive benefits for consumers such as fewer collisions, better traffic flow, and reduced stress for drivers. However, there will be challenges along the way.
- CAA is actively following this technology as it develops to ensure the consumer experience is a positive one as the first levels of automation have already started rolling out.
- Vehicles are collecting a vast amount of data about their drivers and CAA wants to ensure consumers understand what information is being collected and can control who has access to it.
