Automated vehicles use on-board sensors, cameras, global positioning, and telecommunications to help perform safety-critical driving functions such as steering, acceleration, and/or braking. To ensure full awareness of their surroundings, automated vehicles can leverage connected technology to communicate wirelessly with other vehicles and roadside infrastructure to improve safety, performance, and reliability.
