About this report
The shift towards vehicle autonomy is already impacting the automotive industry and will continue to do so as it arrives. Today, the eco-system is evolving rapidly as a number of OEMs announce new initiatives while investing in, or acquiring, suppliers of autonomous technologies and systems. Similarly emerging from the eco-system are a growing number of industry partnerships and new start-ups dedicated to the development of these systems – from specialized system-on-a-chip units to full sensor suites.
The reach of the autonomous eco-system itself will span multiple sectors. Beyond the development and launch of passenger-oriented features, systems, and vehicles, consumers will also benefit from autonomous services offered by commerce companies and mobility service providers. This reach provides expansion opportunities for legacy automotive players while operating as an entry point for newer start-ups and consumer technology firms. However, this accessibility will see the eco-system become increasingly competitive.
This report examines this eco-system thoroughly, detailing the autonomous strategies of major OEMs and outlining its latest trends. The key partnerships made by these OEMs are similarly profiled, and the ways in which the eco-system is evolving are identified. Its scope extends further to highlight the technologies used to enable vehicle autonomy while understanding the regulations surrounding autonomous vehicles and services in different regions.
