According to J.D Power Head of European Operation, he said:

When we look at the PP100 scores of relatively new safety technologies, it’s clear that manufacturers still have work to do to perfect those systems—particularly premium brands that use them as a major selling point.

It’s also going to be vital for vehicle makers to win customer trust in this technology if they are to convince potential buyers that fully automated vehicles in the future will be reliable.

For example, such buyers are quite likely to question the safety of self-driving cars if brands still struggle with the accuracy of their navigation systems
