Fully autonomous driving for vehicles on public roads is technology that can fundamentally transform our society.  The numerous benefits are what inspires industry, researchers, the public, and the press. While still much basic research needs to be accomplished to make autonomous systems dependable, many drivers already enjoy the application of different levels of automation today through advanced driver assistance systems. The lecture provides an overview of the history, anticipated benefits, but also challenges around automated and autonomous driving. The challenges range from the sheer complexity of the underlying system to perception, safety, security, and social implications.
