Autonomous Vehicle Insights

Autonomous Vehicles (Driverless Cars, Self-Driving Cars) will fundamentally transform mobility and usher in the next great leap in society.

Autonomous modes of transportation are used everyday in cities around the world everyday and with the introduction of autonomous vehicles usage will only grow. As the research around autonomous transportation has moved from the lab to the streets of the world, it’s impact has yet to be fully felt.

In the future individuals will subscribe to an autonomous vehicle brand as a service as opposed to owning and garaging an autonomous vehicle.

Morgan Stanley is projecting the shared mobility market to be worth $2.6 trillion by 2030.

To be prepared for this market opportunity, strategies have to be developed now.

Our insights into autonomous vehicles from the labs to the startups to the traditional car manufacturers are listed below in the form of articles for your perusal.

A Brief Introduction To Autonomous Vehicles

Autonomous vehicles are no longer from an episode of The Jetsons. Autonomous transportation is real and here today.

 The research that is being conducted on Autonomous modes of transportation is really incredible and quite special. As the research around autonomous transportation has moved from the lab to the streets of the world, it’s impact has yet to be fully felt.

Autonomous transportation and autonomous vehicles are going to change the world and usher in the next great leap in society. Autonomous transportation is going to level the playing field and allow those who are less fortunate and those who are elderly or disabled to rediscover their freedom once again.

Autonomous technology will allow these individuals to be truly mobile. No longer will they have to rely on a relative, a caretaker or a friend to take them out for the day or to the doctor. We are seeing this very scenario play out in the city-state of Singapore as the average age of their citizens will be 65 by the year 2030.

The Government of Singapore is now allowing testing of autonomous taxis on the streets of Singapore through a partnership with nuTonomy, which was spun out of MIT.

The goal the Government of Singapore is to limit the number of the cars on the street, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and providing on-demand autonomous transportation within 15 minutes, day or night.

Soon we will have autonomous transportation in every city around the world.

Autonomous forms of transportation will increase safety and reduce accidents on the roadways.

Autonomous vehicles cannot run a red light or a stop sign.

Autonomous vehicles are programmed to obey the law. Not to the break the law.

This will not only increase the safety of those traveling in the autonomous vehicle, but also those individuals who are crossing the street or riding a bicycle. Autonomous vehicles identify pedestrians, bicyclists, dogs and all foreign objects on the road, whether or not the driver is paying attention.

Autonomous vehicles do not get distracted.

Autonomous vehicles do not check text messages or have a glass of wine.

The autonomous vehicle is always alert.

Autonomous vehicle technology already has saved countless lives.

As Henry Ford once said: “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.”

With autonomous vehicles, we are just coming together but soon we will be working together towards success.
