The stats in this report speak for themselves with EY highlighting a number of Trendicators. With 95% of road accidents reportedly caused by human error, the case for autonomous driving is certainly compelling. Worth a read.
EY’s Global Automotive Center has developed the following points of view: • AVs offer several benefits ts once deployed, however, the road to autonomous driving has a number of challenges that will need to be resolved to achieve a sustainable mobility ecosystem in the future. • Given the implementation complexities, we expect AVs to be launched through multiple controlled scenarios in and around urban areas. • As the benefits ts outweigh the costs, and liability, safety and security concerns are addressed, these controlled scenarios will expand and merge across vast urban areas and eventually integrate intercity mobility as well. • AVs represent a signicant paradigm shift to the mobility ecosystem — not only a technological revolution, but a value chain transformation. The commercial deployment of AVs will have far- reaching implications for stakeholders across all levels of the mobility value chain.
