      I am hearing "AV" like we should all know what that stands for.  AV as in Autonomous Vehicle.  I am trying to get used to it, but it sorta reminds me of RV.

      Pretty cool.  Taken from WIkipedia:

      "A classification system based on six different levels (ranging from driver assistance to fully automated systems) was published in 2014 by SAE International, (former Society of Automotive Engineers) (SAE), an automotive standardisation body.[11][12] This classification system is based on the amount of driver intervention and attentiveness required, rather than the vehicle capabilities, although these are very closely related. In the United States, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released in 2013 a formal classification system.[13] The NHTSA abandoned this system when it adopted the SAE standard in September 2016.

      SAE automated vehicle classifications:

      • Level 0: Automated system has no vehicle control, but may issue warnings.
      • Level 1: Driver must be ready to take control at any time. Automated system may include features such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Parking Assistance with automated steering, and Lane...

      • Level 2: The driver is obliged to detect objects and events and respond if the automated system fails to respond properly. The automated system executes accelerating, braking, and steering. The automated system can deactivate immediately upon takeover by the driver.
      • Level 3: Within known, limited environments (such as freeways), the driver can safely turn their attention away from driving tasks, but must still be prepared to take control when needed.
      • Level 4: The automated system can control the vehicle in all but a few environments such as severe weather. The driver must enable the automated system only when it is safe to do so. When enabled, driver attention is not required.
      • Level 5: Other than setting the destination and starting the system, no human intervention is required. The automatic system can drive to any location where it is legal to drive and make its own decision."

        What about the current Teslas?  Is that Level 2 or Level 3?  The driver still needs to be inside...
