Innovation has been a driving force in the auto industry more than a century. While various technologies have made vehicles safer and easier to drive, the emergence of the self-driving vehicle is, perhaps, the single most major innovation to take hold of the auto industry since its inception.
Currently, various automakers and other major companies (like Google) are developing and testing autonomous vehicles. While industry experts expect about 10 million self-driving vehicles to be on U.S. roadways by 2020, they have also predicted that, by 2030, about 1 in every 4 cars on the road will be an autonomous vehicle.
It remains to be seen how the advent of autonomous vehicles will impact roadway travel and safety.
