It could be several more years before a Level-5 fully-autonomous car rolls out of an assembly line but there are encouraging developments all around. Both Bottom-up and Top-up autonomous technologies and platforms are being developed at breakneck speed and we are already starting to see the development of test-beds. At the same time, vehicle trials being conducted globally across all economies for autonomous cars, trucks and trains bode well for the industry. This session will take a closer look at some of these developments, from a regulatory, manufacturer and end-user viewpoint, the various challenges and resistance that could arise and why the future belongs to those who can effectively commercialize these technologies.
