Autonomous Vehicles

The Future is Now


Over the next decade, accelerating autonomous driving    technology, including advances in artificial intelligence, sensors, cameras, radar and data analytics, are set to  transform not only how we drive (or, indeed, are driven), but the notion of car ownership itself.

Here are some quick facts about driverless vehicles: 

1. Autonomous vehicles are expected to comprise 25% of the global marker between 2035 & 2040

2. Computers can be considered legal drivers of vehicles.

3. Pittsburgh is a leader in driverless car technology research and testing.

4. Automated vehicles will save the government billions of dollars.
