Navigant has provided predictions on the size of markets in various regions for consumers as well as commercial vehicles with highly automated driving abilities in their latest research reports. However, the big question is: Will this prediction of 34 million highly automated vehicle deployments by 2035 come true?
There has been continual process of the deployment of highly automated vehicles (HAVs) as several great brands in the industry including General Motors and Waymo get ready for the official launch of an automated service for mobility, geofenced.
According to the reports, current trends show that deployments would likely be restricted to only a couple of cities in the year 2020 before spreading faster in the later years of the decade.
In spite of the various benefits of the technology, such as a reduction in congestion and an embracement of electrification, the fact remains that the companies responsible for this technologies continue to struggle on various issues; including if highly automated vehicles can function on a reliable level, given real world circumstances. For this reason, new questions keep popping up on how realistic and viable the business model of this technology would be.
As a result of such pros and cons, cities are searching for ways to see that highly automated vehicles can somehow blend into the system such that its advantages can be enjoyed.
The report established projections on the regional markets (with automated driving abilities) for commercial vehicles and consumers. The report also capitalized on the details by category as the worldwide market projection for sales and vehicles populations for consumers are under three different scenes which extend up to 2035.
While the current trends show that these projections could become a reality, the whole world awaits reality.
