In the future, you may no longer summon a taxi or Uber. You may no longer have to think about where you are going and how you will get there. In the future, you will likely push a button, and a self-driving car will arrive to take you from point A to point B.
“By 2021, self-driving cars will have logged almost 100 billion miles,” said Gary Silberg, KPMG’s Automotive leader. “The cars of the future will have deep learning capabilities, lidar, radar, camera and thermal technology, powered by millions of lines of code. In essence, they will be super computers on wheels – nothing like what we see today.”
The autonomous vehicle will dramatically change the relationship you have with your car, and it will have profound implications not just on car sales and the economics of the Automotive industry, but well beyond – including the Healthcare, Energy and Insurance sectors.
In this installment of Future Ready, we continue to explore the theme of managing disruption through insights from KPMG leaders Gary Silberg, Joe Schneider and Regina Mayor about how self-driving cars are steering their way into various industries and our everyday lives.
