Khodrocar - Lexus international president, Mr Yoshihiro Sawa, told media the company doesn’t believe it’s being conservative with its rollout of autonomous driving features. Instead, it wants to perfect the technology before pushing it to the market.
"Actually we are not conservative we believe, because we aim to have the world’s safest car,” Sawa said.
"Of course, safety and autonomous sound different, but however the technology is the same so we are putting the same kind of sensor on autonomous – but first of all we have to establish the safest situation, that is very important.
"So on top of that autonomous will come. If you just focus on autonomous people will not understand, autonomous is not perfect yet.”Lexus’ plan for autonomous rollout will see it launch its highway capable autonomous vehicles by 2020, with focus on urban environment coming in the early parts of the next decade. Even then, Lexus says its autonomous systems will not be available everywhere.
