How cities can benefit from automated driving
Autonomous vehicles will lead to urban mobility reaching a new level: “It’ll basically be as far reaching as the change from horse-drawn carriages to cars,” says Andreas Tschiesner. As Senior Partner at the McKinsey management consultancy, Tschiesner specializes in the automotive and industry sector and collaborates with many automotive manufacturers and suppliers. According to a McKinsey study, autonomous vehicles will be driving around our towns and cities from 2030 onwards. Projections indicate they will significantly outweigh non-autonomous vehicles between 2040 and 2050. “Self-driving vehicles will then account for about 90 per cent of all journeys in cities,” continued Tschiesner.
