Deployment More Likely to be Increasing Automation, With Semi-Autonomous Systems Reaching up to 4.6M Units by 2021. Full Autonomy Not Expected to Enter the Market Until 2025
BOSTON, Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In April 2014, the 1968 Vienna Convention was relaxed in allowing autonomous vehicles on the road so long as the system "can be overridden or switched off by a driver." The law change will increasingly enable the testing of self-driving prototype vehicles in real driving conditions.
The Strategy Analytics Automotive Electronics Service (AES) report, "Autonomous Vehicles: Evolutionary Deployment – Revolutionary Outcome?" suggests that while the capability of these prototypes already exist, in reality there are still a number of issues that have to be overcome before they can enter the mass market.
These issues include:
"As a result of these issues, the deployment of autonomous driving will actually be rolled out in stages – as an extension of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) applications, but with increasing autonomy," said Kevin Mak, Senior Analyst in the Automotive Electronics Service (AES) at Strategy Analytics. He added, "As high performance components become available, consumers will become more accustomed with ADAS, and economies of scale are generated from platform designs, then increasingly levels of autonomy will be deployed – starting with Traffic Jam Assist. New players to the industry will also provide the much-needed impetus for autonomous driving developments, such as Google and NVIDIA."
