For example, one of the functions of an autopilot is the ability to alert the driver. After analyzing the information about the obstacle in the case of a threat to humans (possibility of tipping, etc.) the PC will ask the driver to leave the vehicle. The machine will automatically travel the difficult part. The driver can control the car remotely with a special remote.
In addition, the system will be able to adapt the suspension of the car depending on the type and nature of obstacles. For example, the autopilot can adjust the height ride height or damping.
