Why the Road to Autonomous Vehicles Is Bumpy
In the long-run, autonomous vehicle technology promises to be transformative for several industries. But for now, deployment of the technology has been gradual, thanks in part to high-profile accidents involving autonomous technology. As a result, prominent automotive and trucking company leaders are hesitant to speculate on timelines for commercialization of the technology. In the meantime, however, the level of automation in modern vehicles is steadily increasing and offerings like driver assistance and partial and conditional automation are gradually becoming mainstream.
In this feature, we’ll:
- Take a look at the status quo of the broader transportation industry.
- Explore the evolution of autonomous vehicle technology.
- Look at regulatory matters and ethical questions related to autonomous vehicle technology.
- Discuss the potential impact of the technology on industries at large.
