Self-driving Cars – The Elevated Future of Mobility

The race for a completely self-driving car is underway with increased ongoing testing and prototyping of self-driving cars market taking place worldwide, and autonomous systems consistently becoming more advanced. The automotive industry is almost on the brink of entering into a new mobility ecosystem that could provide faster, cleaner, safer, cheaper, more efficient, and customized travel. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg, as below the surface, a massive restructuring of the automotive industry is underway, wherein, self-driving car companies are emerging as the key element in the strategies for future mobility.

While uncertainty abounds, specifically about the pace of transition, a fundamental shift is highly likely to drive a move away from driver-controlled vehicles toward a future mobility ecosystem that is centered around self-driving cars. As more and more automakers are experimenting and inventing in this direction, and have passionate voices that describe much-altered futures, Transparency Market Research (TMR), in its latest business intelligence, analyzed the opportunistic future prospects of this industry.

Technological Roadmap of the Self-driving Car Market

The first self-driving car was prototyped in the 1980s by the Carnegie Mellon University, and since then, automakers and research universities, as well as the IT industry, have become increasingly interested in self-driving car technologies. Google began its self-driving car project in 2009, and soon after, autonomous vehicle laws were passed in Nevada. In 2012, Google tested its driverless project with a self-driving car fleet, including 6 Toyota Prius, 3 Lexus RX, and an Audi TT; while Tesla begun the development of its fully-autonomous car in 2013. It was in 2016 that Tesla introduced fully-autonomous hardware in all its new cars, followed by autonomous vehicle guidelines by the U.S. Department of Transportation in the same year. The year 2018 marked the beginning of heavier investments in the self-driving car market, as Ford created a new AV division with plans to invest US$ 4 billion by 2023, and Uber ended its development of self-driving trucks to shift its focus on cars.

Impact of Undercurrents on the Self-driving Car Market

High Passenger Preference for Time-Saving Rides Unlocking Growth Prospects

Embedded with various sensors, including ultrasonic, LiDAR, RADAR, cameras, vision detectors, and GPS receivers, self-driving cars can drive closer together, and hold the potential to eliminate the probability of traffic congestion. This will create a parallel space for less traffic and reduced congestion, even with more cars on the road. The time-saving aspect of self-driving cars, as they allow passengers to utilize the time of the journey without any interference or menace of driving, is likely to fuel their adoption in the coming years.

Quest for Reliable Road Safety Solutions to Underpin Gains

Self-driving cars are coming out of laboratories and are undergoing test runs on the roads, and drawing increasing attention for their potential role in reducing fatal collisions. Self-driving car technology is increasingly shaping the current discussions of road safety. The International Organization for Road Accident Prevention estimates that, human error leads to ~ 90% of the road accidents, worldwide. For that matter, the adoption of self-driving cars can considerably reduce the number of road accidents, while making the streets safer by automating safety features and reducing dependency. This is a key determinant projected to propel the self-driving car market in the years to come. However, automakers still need to delve deeper into innovation to make self-driving cars widely adopted on a global scale.
