Autonomous Vehicles to 2027: A Detailed Review Featuring Google, Nissan & Tesla - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Autonomous Vehicles to 2027: a Detailed Review" report to their offering.

"The new world will be defined by automated driving, in the future it will be an everyday feature of our life and it will completely change mobility - Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen

In-depth analysis of the impact of autonomous driving on the automotive industry: business models, regulation, technology, industry restructuring, forecasts for adoption

Within a seemingly impossibly short time frame, not only the concept of autonomous cars but actual deployment of autonomous technology on the road has gone from blue sky theory almost to everyday reality. The automotive industry is faced with radical and deep-rooted change.

Based on extensive primary and secondary research and original surveys, Autonomous vehicles to 2027 seeks to make sense of developments by breaking them down into their key parts, analysing the impact of each area, and pulling everything together to provide an assessment of the real significance of developments.

Key issues covered

  • Business models and the new personal transport ecosystem - the auto industry as part of the new transportation system, ride-sharing, ownership models, services, incremental or disruptive
  • Regulation, risk and litigation - machine morality, liability, legislation, safety
  • The technical evolution of the autonomous car - enabling the next level of ADAS, safety, technology
  • Roadmap to autonomous driving - global development of research and innovation projects, state level initiatives
