Driverless Vehicle industry: realities, bottlenecks and benefits.

When it comes to driverless vehicle, the most exciting is the in-depth willingness to focus on the human wellbeing.
So, beyond the wider economic opportunities, and the ongoing unmatched progress on the technological side; it is encouraging, to talk about predictions; end-to-end security and car sharing; driverless taxis and delivery vans; social mobility for kids, elderly, and impaired; cheaper and smoother transportation; smart mega cities and sustainable development. 
As you can imagine, we are still at the early stage of this industry and ABI Research predicts shipments to increase from 1.1 million in 2024 to more than 42 million in 2035, with an installed driverless vehicle base reaching 176 million.
But it is obvious that a set of barriers remain. From user acceptance and security, liability issues, and regulation, much remains to do with regard to user experience, effectiveness and accuracy in technologies and data.
