Unmanned autonomous vehicles (UAV) subject is one of the most conspicuous topics of the last decade ensures a better handling ability for more precision way of control of the system or the drive compared to the human. Focusing this issue causes the more computerized vehicles the less unacceptable mistakes. Notwithstanding the efficient drive parameters are increased, the collisions are still the worst scenarios for the vehicles that should be taken care of. The most reliable way to define the collision response of the vehicles and the occupants is crash tests, although it is time consuming. Except crash test is the most convenient procedure to define the details of the impact process; it is also the most expensive way even for the major companies and research centers. Considering the compelling pricey amount of the first investment of the crashworthiness facilities and the crash test costs, recently, computer-aided simulations with the finite element method (FEM) using an explicit dynamics approach is very convenient, especially for the transient dynamic analysis. This chapter characterizes some perspectives of the autonomous vehicles in a short glance of an enormous science of the collisions with the help of experimental and numerical approaches.
