Evolving Autonomous Vehicle Navigation Systems - How Autonomous Vehicle Navigation Goes from More-is-better in 2017 to Less-is-more in 2025

December 22, 2017 | State of the Market Report

Autonomous vehicle developers' go-to strategy has been to lean on a more-is-better approach, loading test vehicles with as many environmental perception sensors and computers as necessary to collect and process as much data as possible to enable real-time self-driving capabilities. This is a far-cry from how production vehicles will actually look, and we will see the adoption of a less-is-more approach as developers ask the question: What is the least amount of information I need to repeatedly make the right decision? By addressing three key areas of development - sensors, processing hardware and software, and connectivity - this report will assess how vehicles will change by 2025 to address the cost challenges associated with implementing increasing levels of automation.
