Belief that driverless vehicles could soon accelerate off the pages of science fiction and into our every day lives has become a serious likelihood for 2016, so we’ve looked at what these means for the UK’s businesses.
At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, autonomous vehicles were the hot topic as nine major automakers exhibited there. GPU chip maker Nvidia kicked off the week’s keynote speech with the announcement of its “supercomputer” for driverless cars.
Ever since, barely a day has gone by without the mention of “smart” cars from the likes of Jaguar Land Rover, or the commentary on Apple’s entry to the self-driving market.
Moreover, in the UK, advocates of driverless, autonomous vehicles celebrated the government’s green light to Google Cars earlier this month, applauding the fact they will soon be trialling their artificial intelligence driven machines in London.
