The Impact and trends of COVID-19 on connected, autonomous vehicles
Automotive OEMs and many mobility players have been some of the hardest hit in the automotive world due to COVID-19. This could lead to a direct long-term impact on the autonomous vehicle industry too due to the macroeconomic trends, changing consumer behaviour and regulatory developments. On one hand we see players such as Waymo, Pony.AI, Cruise suspending services and testing activities, on the other hand there are players such as Nuro that have started using its self-driving vehicles to deliver prescriptions to pharmacies. This webinar will talk about such use cases, and our analysis of how the global autonomous and connected vehicle market will evolve in the coming, post-COVID, years.
