The autonomous vehicle industry is currently worth more than $50 billion globally and is expected to expand tenfold over the next decade, per Samsung.
When it comes to the autonomous vehicle sector, the issue of safety is a primary concern. What’s more, "safety" has a broad definition in the industry - it needs to encapsulate the safety of not just drivers and passengers, but that of other vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists.
These complex safety concerns aren’t slowing developers down though. The autonomous vehicle industry is currently worth more than $50 billion globally and is expected to expand tenfold over the next decade. So, what exactly are the safety concerns surrounding the self-driving car industry, what kinds of forecasts are realistic for the sector, and how is Samsung contributing to the area?
How Safe do Autonomous Vehicles Need to Be?
In short, for self-driving cars to improve road safety, they would need to be safer than the average driver-controlled car. The technological requirements and amount of testing needed to reach this level of reliability are great, with experts predicting that milli
