Visiongain’ has launched a completely new automotive report Autonomous Trucks Market Analysis Report 2017-2027 : Forecasts For Driverless, Self-Driving Vehicles By Sensor (Radar, Lidar, Image Sensor, Ultrasonic) By Hardware & Software (Communication Systems, Cameras, GPS System) By Type (Function-Specific Automation, Combined Function Automation, Limited Self-Driving Automation, Full Self-Driving Automation) Plus Profiles of Leading Companies.
As autonomous passenger vehicles and self-driving cars are rapidly being developed, similar research & development work is occurring in parallel to this with autonomous trucks for commercial uses. This is especially the case in repetitive applications where autonomous vehicles can excel, for example, in mining, construction, logistics, military, and delivery applications. Visiongain indicates that the global Autonomous Trucks market will reach $26bn in 2027. The advantages of autonomous trucks go beyond simply not requiring a driver as the lead analyst of the report explains:
“The autonomous trucks market is mainly driven by strict safety norms. One of the major factors boosting the market for autonomous trucks is in minimising driving error. Human Drivers become tired and cannot work 24/7. Driver error contributes to approximately 90% of traffic accidents, so if the technology can be perfected, autonomous trucks will in theory reduce crashes by up to 90%. Increasing use of safety and other connectivity technologies in autonomous trucks is helping autonomous vehicles to minimize accidents.
Another major feature of autonomous truck is lower fuel consumption. Autonomous trucks provide significant other advantages including congestion reductions, pollution reduction benefits and fuel savings among others. Thus, is encouraging end users to upgrade their vehicles to the latest autonomous trucks.
There has been an increase in construction activities in the developing countries of Asia Pacific and RoW. These construction activities depend highly on construction equipment vehicles. Trucks are required for the transportation of raw materials from one point to another. Thus, the manufacturers of autonomous vehicles are highly focusing on developing nation such as India, China and Australia among others.”
Leading companies featured in the report who are developing autonomous trucks include BMW AG, AB Volvo, Ford Motor Co., General Motor Company, Robert Bosch GmbH, Delphi Automotive PLC, Google Inc, Uber Technologies Inc., Tesla Inc and Volkswagen AG.
