Mazda, Toyota, and Subaru all focus on Level 2 autonomous driving

In its latest report, Nikkei Asia says Mazda , Toyota and Subaru have begun to catch up with semi-autonomous driving technology. Notably, the three Japanese automakers will begin incorporating Level 2 autonomous driving into a wide variety of vehicles.  For the uninitiated, the second level of this technology allows hands-free driving on highways, but requires the driver to be alert at all times. Until now, Level 4 driving skills are limited in Japan, so by 2022 Mazda, Toyota and Subaru are aiming for levels 2 and 3. According to Yano Research Institute , by 2030, 62% of self-driving vehicles in Japan may have Level 2.  By the end of next year, Toyota will equip its high-end Crown models with Level 2 autonomous driving technology while Mazda will follow suit by bringing the technology to SUVs and midsize sedans.  Likewise, Subaru has announced that all of its cars sold globally will have Level 2 technology at speeds of up to 50km / h.
