Auto-pilot features in modern vehicles are fairly new, but most major automobile manufacturers make partial or conditional driving automation a current day reality.
Such systems are designed to make vehicles safer. They can help a driver avoid common distractions or safety hazards. However, Driver Assist and autopilot systems can have several problems that increase the risk of a collision – specifically when they malfunction or fail to detect a hazard.
Although these systems are not fully automated, many drivers rely on autopilot believing it is a fully automated system. Over reliance on such systems can lead to deadly outcomes when the system fails to detect hazards or when the driver cannot control the vehicle in time to avoid a crash.
