As per a survey by Roland Berger, Forschungsgesellschaft Kraftfahrwesen Aachen, the following countries have been identified to lead the autonomous vehicle and capturing the new innovative and more unique solution provided for the customers to travel free without the limitations of driving licence or navigating the traffic freely around your zone.
The countries identified are USA, Germany, Sweden, United Kingdom, South Korea, Japan, China, France and Italy. The new type of vehicle is definitely becoming the source of outgrowing the traditional way of driving and also the traditional automobile market.
However, the race to win the autonomous vehicle market is also becoming competitive. The market opened the door to new innovative and more customized software solutions for the developers to work on and develop a more sophisticated program to provide a more unique solution to any autonomous vehicle. The battle is also using only the cameras for the autonomous driving style or use the LiDAR style, some of them are embedding both the technologies in their vehicles. The vehicles are also getting a new design or being reshaped to justify the title being an autonomous vehicle.
In my opinion, the battle between the countries in the new era of autonomous vehicle, can be seen as how equally the eastern or the Asian countries are involved and providing a tough competition to the well-established western or European countries. USA is leading the race to autonomous vehicle and the most prominent is Tesla, Elon Musk’s ambitious project.
