As more and more automakers bring semi-autonomous driver assistance features to their vehicles, there’s still a lot of misunderstanding amount the general public surrounding how these systems work. As we’ve said before, it’s also very easy to over-rely on what is (essentially) just a very advanced cruise control system.

But do automakers need to be ranked on how their advanced driver assistance, lane, keep and other ‘Pilot’ systems operate? The IIHS is working on just such a rating, and it’s already started putting semi-autonomous vehicle tech through its paces (http://www.iihs.org/iihs/news/desktopnews/evaluating-autonomy-iihs-examines-driver-assistance-features-in-road-track-tests).
