We started talking about autonomous vehicles (AV's) a while back, and have featured several white papers on the future impact and viability of autonomous vehicles.
The question remains..."is it really just around the corner?"
As we start a new year we will surely hear more talk about AV's, technology, the cross roads of tech and auto companies competing for AV's. As well as CES that starts tomorrow in Las Vegas sucking some wind out of NAIAS which starts next week.
There is a ton of technology, stakeholders, from several directions. Let alone the various opinions from a myriad of experts, analysts, and various jurisdictions weighing in.
If you listen to some folks 2016 was the year that you could momentarily let go of the steering wheel. Be assured that this thought vector will continue this year.
