The road to autonomous driving is winding

Imagine this: With a tap of a screen, you order a driverless car. You get in and open a window to breathe in clear air. Your commute is stress free, and there’s no congestion on the road. You are efficiently and safely delivered to your destination, and you don’t have to worry about finding parking. Is this a down-the-road reality or will real-world challenges block the path to wide-scale autonomous-vehicle (AV) adoption? Despite setbacks that have pushed out timelines for AV launches and delayed customer adoption, autonomous driving has the potential to transform transportation, consumer behavior, and society at large. By 2035, autonomous driving could create $300 billion to $400 billion in revenue, say Johannes Deichmann, Kersten Heineke, Dr. Ruth Heuss, and co-authors in a recent report. Explore these insights to discover when AVs will hit the road, what enablers will contribute to their widespread adoption, and what technologies will be critical on the road to autonomy.
