From Ford to Tesla, the automotive industry is rapidly moving forward with self-driving cars. With such a great and innovative technology at their fingertips, every company is working towards perfecting these vehicles to release them into the market. It’s a fact that self-driving cars are bound to transform and impact the automotive industry. We are seeing it now, and we will continue to see it as these vehicles grow. That’s why there’s no surprise that such widely known companies are partaking in the development of self-driving cars.

and even Uber!
As you can see (and as you may have guessed) tech companies are heavily involved as well! One of the most known tech giants working in this is Google, but Apple and Microsoft are not too far behind. They have both started to research and develop the most high-tech systems to make these self-driving cars a reliable reality. Furthermore, suppliers are also keeping up with the new technology. For example, an Audi with Delphi technology recently saw success by driving 3,000 miles on its own 99% of the time. With such advancements, automotive companies have also started to set launching dates. Nissan predicts to have 10 self-driving cars on sale by 2020, along with other companies like PSA Groupe, Volvo and BMW who all predict to have some sort of autonomous mode during this time as well.
Whether you’re a fan of self-driving cars or not, this innovation is sure to shake things up in the automotive industry.
