Autonomous vehicles - Are we there yet?

A recent Gartner study shows that 30 percent of all U.S. drivers are interested in getting self-driving features in their next new vehicle.

There aren’t many other topics that have ignited people’s imagination of what could happen and how it will change our lives like the prospect of self-driving and autonomous vehicles. Most of these changes seem positive, but robot vehicles might also lead to new business models and undesired consequences for companies and drivers:

Will automakers continue to be able to sell driving excitement as a differentiator?
Will BestBuy offer shopping tours that include free pick-up and drop-off at the consumer’s home?
Will insurance companies charge you more when using ‘manual’ mode?
Are autonomous machines going to patrol buildings and eventually us?
Will vehicle ownership become less desirable?
Will personal mobility finally become an option for all of us?

The event will outline the current state of key autonomous vehicle initiatives and explore the technological, business and market opportunities that will arise from one of the most significant innovations in our times. Please join us for an interactive meeting of insightful discussions from thought leaders and entrepreneurs. We would like to thank our sponsor Wilmer Hale Speakers:
