Driving on the road is a way of life - whether for work or for leisure. Being able to get safely from A to B is something we take for granted. And today driving is safer than it was ten years ago, and ten years before that, and in ten years time it will be even safer. This progress can be measured - fewer accidents, fewer injuries, fewer deaths = less cost to society, in both human, financial and environmental terms. So the benefits of safe driving are crystal clear. But to get to that stage, a lot has gone on, and is still going on, behind the scenes and particularly in the software that has become the key ingredient of every modern mode of transport, the road vehicle being no exception.
