"The 'something everywhere' strategy is generally embraced by traditional car manufacturers and is well captured by the levels of automation.

A small number of vehicles also incorporate an active lane-keeping assist feature in a way that makes them capable of partial automation. . . . Notwithstanding the potential for and reality of driver distraction, both of these levels assume that the human driver continues to actively monitor the driving environment."
