Although intelligent vehicles research has achieved its prominence, there have been a number of issues that are yet to be addressed, in order for intelligent vehicles to bring a quality change to people's mobility and intelligent vehicle riding comfort. The talk is aimed at sharing with the audience the speaker's personal views on a number of yet unresolved issues, as well as on some controversies in contemporary solution developments.
