DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2gq6zp/autonomous) has announced the addition of the "Autonomous Vehicles Land, Water, Air 2015-2035" report to their offering.
Only this report is up to date and global in reach, being based on interviews, events and data analysis almost entirely in 2015 and 2014. It is not an academic treatise nor is it simply a consolidation of what is on the web. A high proportion of the tables and figures are original and the jargon is fully explained. There are slides from recent conferences across the world. It is not evangelism: it is analysis, so the negatives are also presented.
The Executive Summary and Conclusions is sufficient for those with little time to get a good grasp of the subject. It covers definitions, the spectrum of partial to total autonomy and highly automated to fully automated vehicles. The benefits and paybacks, relative degree of difficulty, hype curve for 10 families of autonomous vehicles, technology and market sizes and timelines are clearly presented in totally original new analysis. Many thought leaders and analysts are quoted. The Introduction then looks at more definitions, purposes, arguments for and against, drive train technology, control and navigation technology, autonomy without infrastructure and a profusion of military and non-military examples with technology summarised.
Other chapters variously detail personal, industrial, commercial and military autonomous land vehicles now and in future, marine vehicles particularly the very successful Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV). Then come Unmanned Aerial Vehicles that are or will be autonomous particularly examining the burgeoning Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (SUAV) and their increasingly varied uses plus the technology making this possible. That includes collaborative swarming and Wireless Sensor (mesh) Networks (WSN).
