ADL4 and ADL5:
Safety will be essential for these highly and fully automated vehicles as they will operate without a driver or even human supervision. On highways, AD L4 vehicles, such as long-haul trucks, are expected to transport goods and assets over long distances safely. In cities, AD L5 vehicles will enable mass-market mobility services (MaaS), including bicycle sharing, electric scooter sharing, and ride sharing, as well as package delivery by robots. For this to happen, u-safe will be a leading solution in facilitating the necessary safety tools these vehicles require.
