Automated vehicle technology has the potential to alter the face of motoring. This game-changing technology, made popular by Tesla Motors autopilot system, has caught the fancy of prominent automakers such as Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz. The world's leading centers for vehicle research and technology boast of some of the best engineers, innovators, and facilities that are dedicated to making self-driving vehicles the norm rather than the exception. Favorable regulatory environments, support from the right investors, and the drive to deliver the benefits of emission control, road safety, and self-parking, among others, are vital for building automotive technologies of the future. With Uber showing interest in purchasing automated and autonomous cars, the concept of driverless taxis also seems perfectly viable.

Our perspective on this rapidly snowballing trend and our approach to making the most of the enormous opportunities in store is just as unique and innovative as this technology.
