This article presents a review and analysis of the prospects of achieving full-length autonomous driving, a concept that has long been a dream of humans. Although the automotive industry has made significant progress in many areas, creating fully automated vehicles (level 5) has remained a challenge. This paper examines some companies that are already racing to achieve this feat, such as Tesla, Google's Waymo, and Uber, and the challenges they face, such as ensuring safety and reliability while also dealing with complex and expensive technology. The article highlights the issues that must be addressed when discussing fully automated vehicles, such as legal and regulatory frameworks, public acceptance, and cybersecurity. The current generation of autonomous vehicles has not yet passed road tests, which raises questions about the feasibility of creating and being able to use fully automated vehicles in the near future. Despite the challenges, the article suggests that the high level of technological development implies that fully autonomous vehicles will become a reality someday. The author concludes that while we may not see fully autonomous driving cars on our roads soon, the progress being made in the field is promising, and we may expect to see these vehicles become a common sight on our roads in the future.
