The autonomous revolution
Hosted by consultancy firm Oliver Wyman on 12 October, a press breakfast in Paris explored in ins and out of ‘the autonomous revolution’.
Automation is influencing transport in all directions – cars of course, but also bikes (Hoverbike), trains (automatic metro systems and even heavy rail), drones, commercial vessels (Rolls Royce), submarines, and logistics robots in depots. Oliver Wyman expects the market to accelerate over the next decade with sales of all types of vehicle (all modes) to soar from today’s 20 billion euros to 640 billion euros by 2030.
