Globally, all major OEMs now develop ADAS and autonomous driving systems. Regionally, European and American OEMs take a lead in the development of autonomous driving, having achieved L2/L3 advanced driver assistance on large scale and expected to seal the accomplishment of L3/L4 autonomous driving around 2021; Japanese and South Korean OEMs hold a relatively conservative attitude to autonomous driving. Take Toyota for example, it designs two development paths for autonomous driving: Guardian (advanced safe driving assistance) and Chauffeur (autonomous driving), but without specific timetable for L4/L5; China’s home-grown OEMs are catching up, as an array of models with L2 ADAS functions will be mass-produced in 2018 according to plans of OEMs including Changan Automobile, FAW Hongqi, Geely, BAIC and Chery. Local carmakers plan to achieve L4/L5 during 2025-2030.
