Self Driving Cars: The Next Revolution – 2012 Whitepaper by CAR & KPMG
The automobile industry appears to be on the cusp of revolutionary change, with the potential to dramatically reshape not just the competitive landscape but also the way people interact with vehicles, and indeed, the future design of roads and cities. The revolution, when it comes, will be engendered by the advent of autonomous or "self-driving" vehicles.
A joint effort between CAR and KPMG provides insight on the convergence of sensor-based and communication-based vehicle technologies and its implications, reflecting the results of interviews with more than 25 thought leaders, automotive and high-tech executives, and government officials, as well as analysis of industry trends. The CAR / KPMG press release and whitepaper is available for download.
