SAE International divides the driving automation levels of automobiles from level 0 to level 5 to six levels. Among them, level 2 refers to a state in which the driver can always interfere with driving while looking ahead. In other words, on a road with clear and complex lane sections such as a highway, Level 2 is a condition in which automatic or autonomous driving is only possible as an auxiliary route for limited conditions and times.
A common level 2 driving function is to assist a driver such as HDA (Highway Driving Assist) to improve driving comfort and safety. Although the functions and names supported by vehicle manufacturers vary, the Level 2 provides an autonomous driving level that assists the driver, and requires a Level 3 or higher to drive the driver with the steering wheel and removable pedals.
