Transportation is using technology such as a motor vehicle, airplane, train, boat (or organisms such as animals - horses, mules, ox, camels, elephants, etc) to move people or items between two or more locations. Alternatively, self-powered transportation such as walking, jogging/running, biking, rowing or swimming are also viable options for people to move themselves (or even other people/items as in the case of rickshaws or rowers), usually between shorter distances than when using technology (or animals) in the task.

Off-roading

ATVs

All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are typically 4-wheeled off-roading vehicles (commonly referred to as “Quads” or “4-wheelers”) with large tires, but many makes, models and designs also potentially qualify as ATVs.

ATCs

All Terrain Cycles (ATCs) are typically 3-wheeled off-roading vehicles (commonly referred to as “Trikes” or “3-wheelers”) with large tires.

Autonomous Vehicles

Autonomous Vehicles are those which have some degree of operational control over the driving, shifting, steering and other critical functions. There are six different increasingly difficult to meet (strict) levels of automation and, as the levels increase, the extent of the driverless car’s independence regarding operation control increases.

  1. Level 0 - the vehicle has no control over its operation and the human driver does all of the driving (there may be some automated/scheduling/voice-activated functions around Radio/stereo, GPS, in-vehicle climate control, etc, but not in operating the vehicle)
  2. Level 1 - the vehicle’s ADAS (advanced driver assistance system) has the ability to support the driver with either steering or accelerating and braking.
  3. Level 2 - the ADAS can oversee steering and accelerating and braking in some conditions, although the human driver is required to continue paying complete attention to the driving environment throughout the journey, while also performing the remainder of the necessary tasks.
  4. Level 3 - the ADS (advanced driving system) can perform all parts of the driving task in some conditions, but the human driver is required to be able to regain control when requested to do so by the ADS. In the remaining conditions, the human driver executes the necessary tasks.
  5. Level 4 - the vehicle’s ADS is able to perform all driving tasks independently in certain conditions in which human attention is not required.
  6. Level 5 - involves full automation whereby the vehicle’s ADS is able to perform all tasks in all conditions, and no driving assistance is required from the human driver.

A commonly pitched proposal is that the "full automation" that comes with achieving "Level 5" will be enabled by the application of 5G technology, which will allow vehicles to communicate not just with one another, but also with traffic lights, signage and even the roads themselves; potentially, even being aware of pedestrians via their devices' signals.
