I found some extra info on this if y'all are interested.



Pre-collision System with pedestrian detection function (PCS) - as the name suggest this system uses the radar and the camera to detect cars and pedestrians in the vicinity of your vehicle. It will activate an audio and visual alert in addition to brake assist to help prevent or mitigate collisions, followed by automatic braking if the driver isn’t reacting quick enough.

Lane Departure Alert (LDA) - uses the camera to detect white/yellow lane markings and if the vehicle starts to deviate from its lane, the LDA sounds the alarm, adds vibration to the steering wheel and if the car has Lane Keep Assist it will veer back in the center of the lane.

Automatic High Beam (AHB) - helps ensure excellent forward visibility during night driving. The front camera detects headlights of incoming traffic and the taillights of the cars ahead to automatically switch the high and low beams accordingly.

Radar Cruise Control - the millimeter-wave radar is used here to detect the cars ahead and determine their speed in order to adjust your’s and keep a safe distance. The camera detects vehicles entering or leaving the lane you’re driving in.
I also hope these glitches are fixed...

It'll be quite a sight to see the first autonomous car. I just have this feeling that at first these systems aren't going to be perfect. There will have to be problems with them. But maybe I am just a cynic.
