Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) have the potential to enhance the road safety, while reducing congestion, and GHG emissions. It is expected that vehicles with the different level of autonomy (Level 2+) will hit the road in the near future. This chapter discusses briefly the state of art of the three main building blocks of the automated driving (AD), to develop a reliable, safe, and trustable AV. In this framework, AV sensors, planning, and tracking controller techniques are reviewed. Moreover, the challenges, some promising technologies (e.g. self-cleaning sensors), technical solutions, and shortfalls that need to be alleviated are described considering different vehicle classes ranging from passenger up to heavy duty vehicle.
