    Autonomous driving is that innovation – the result of the application of Artificial Intelligence in the automotive sector – which represents the future of transport and whose applications will have an impact not only on the motorist sphere but also on many aspects of the society in which we live. The common idea is that self-driving cars are a recent invention, a frieze of the 21st century, however the reality is different.

    The historical analysis of the automotive sector and Artificial Intelligence applied to the automotive world will allow us to deepen what has been achieved so far and what still needs to be done. It will then be interesting to understand the possible impact that the autonomous revolution will have on society and people’s lifestyle. Self-driving vehicles today are not perfect yet, so we will try to identify and analyze the technical and non-technical problems that contribute to slowing the entry of self-driving vehicles on the market.

    Key words: autonomous vehicle; connected and automated driving; sustainable urban mobility; urban planning.
