RANKED: The 18 companies most likely to get self-driving cars on the road first
Lyft announced Wednesday that it will team up with Ford on self-driving cars, the latest addition to a growing list of partners.
The news shows how rapidly the self-driving-car space is shaping up. With so many players in the space, companies are exploring new tactics to get their product to market first.
We decided to take a step back and see where each company stands in the race to make robot cars a reality.
Navigant Research assessed all the self-driving-car players and released a leadership grid in April showing who is most poised to bring Level 2, Level 3, and Level 4 self-driving cars to market in the next decade.
Companies on the Leadership Grid were assessed on 10 criteria: vision; go-to-market strategy; partners; production strategy; technology; product capability; sales, marketing & distribution; product quality and reliability; product portfolio; staying power. The companies were then given an overall score out of 100 based on their performance in each category.
