Educating consumers about their vehicles' advanced driver-assistance systems is a key step in the industry's effort to safely bring higher levels of automation to the market.
One way to get there could be as simple as knowing what to call these systems. For instance, is it "lane centering" or "lane keeping"?
Industry experts say if automakers start using common terms to describe components of their driver-assist systems, consumers would be more likely to understand the systems' capabilities and limitations. Currently, automakers use different brand names for their proprietary offerings.
