1. A computer-implemented method for updating an autonomous operation feature, comprising:

  • receiving, at one or more processors, an indication of an update associated with the autonomous operation feature;

    identifying, by one or more processors, an autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicle having the autonomous operation feature;

    collecting, by one or more processors, operating data for the autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicle during operation of the autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicle by electronic communication with an on-board computer of the vehicle, wherein the operating data includes data regarding operation of the autonomous operation feature and environmental conditions during operation of the autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicle;

    generating, by one or more processors, at least one risk level associated with the update to the autonomous operation feature based upon virtual or physical testing of the update associated with the autonomous operation feature; and

    determining, by one or more processors, a weighted risk level for the autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicle, wherein the weighted risk level is determined based upon the at least one risk level and the operating data to facilitate installation of updates to autonomous operation features.
