Why nobody will own a car in 2030: Self-driving, electric ride-shares will spell the end for traditional automobiles

Cars will die out by 2030 as electric self-driving car shares take over our roads, according to a new report. Ninety-five per cent of miles travelled in the US will happen in autonomous vehicles owned by fleets rather than individuals in just over a decade, researchers found. This new technology will be up to ten times cheaper than buying a new car and will bring an end to more than 100 years of individual vehicle ownership.

'We are on the cusp of one of the fastest, deepest, most consequential disruptions of transportation in history,' said Tony Seba, co-author of the report, produced by RethinkX, an independent research group based in California. The report found Autonomous Electric Vehicles (A-EVs) will be owned by companies providing Transport as a Service (TaaS) by 2030 which will make up 60 per cent of vehicles on US roads. As fewer cars travel more miles, the number of passenger vehicles on American roads will drop from 247 million in 2020 to 44 million in 2030, the report said.

Authors of the study claim this move is driven by economics and users will abandon their personal cars because it no longer makes sense financially. They predict using electric vehicles will be between two to four times cheaper than operating existing vehicles by 2021.

Lets dig a fraction deeper, the source of the above story is a report released by the RethinkX think tank.
In my experience, the independent think tanks that can place stories in the national and international press are anything but independent.

So the independent think tank actually revolves around one piece of software from one individual, Tony Seba

Anticipating and Leading Market Disruption

Why do smart people at smart companies fail to anticipate, let alone lead, market disruption? How can you anticipate and lead market disruption rather than be surprised when it is too late for your company or industry to react? Traditional strategy can’t help you and even slow-moving disruption models are already obsolete.
right

We now live in a state of permanent disruption, where disruptors can seemingly come out of anywhere and quickly destroy existing markets and industries with better, cheaper, and faster products and services. These disrupting companies use a combination of exponentially improving technologies, new product architectures and innovative business models enabled by these technologies to meet customer needs in new and unexpected ways.

Jeremy Clarkson warns that a driverless car 'could have killed him twice' after Chancellor vows to put autonomous vehicles on the roads by 2021
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5097337/Jeremy-Clarkson-warns-against-driverless-cars.html

Jeremy Clarkson has warned of the dangers of driverless cars as Chancellor Philip Hammond prepared to give autonomous vehicles the green light for testing on UK roads in the Budget. The Grand Tour host said he drove an autonomous car recently which twice over a distance of 50 miles made mistakes which could have killed him. It came as Mr Hammond prepared to announce changes to regulations to allow developers to test self-driving cars on UK roads for the first time.

The Treasury sees the rules as the last barrier to advanced, on-road testing, and hopes it will help realise the Chancellor's vision of autonomous cars on British roads by 2021. But Clarkson wrote in the Sunday Times magazine: 'I drove a car the other day which has a claim of autonomous capability and twice in the space of 50 miles on the M4 it made a mistake, a huge mistake, which could have resulted in death.

'We have to be very careful legally, so I'm not going to say which one.'

Clarkson said the incidents convinced him the technology was still 'a very long way off', adding: 'For now, we're miles away from it.' He also challenged Audi, which is due next year to start selling the most advanced autonomous car of its kind: 'You drive one of your driverless cars over the Death Road in Bolivia and I'll buy one.

'Sit there with your hands folded and let it drive you up there, then squeeze past a lorry with half the tyre hanging over a 1,000ft drop while the car drives itself. Fine, I'll buy into it.'

The Budget plans to support the driverless car industry, which officials estimate will be worth £28billion to the economy by 2035 and support 27,000 jobs, come as part of a package of measures designed to help the UK become a world leader in the technological revolution. Mr Hammond is also expected to announce tens of millions of pounds of investment in areas such as artificial intelligence (AI) and 5G mobile networks.

It is hoped the Budget will pave the way for the Government's industrial strategy, which seeks to boost Britain's lagging productivity and create more high-skilled jobs.

Ford's Self-Driving Test Car Severely Damaged In Crash
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01-12/fords-self-driving-test-car-severely-damaged-crash





'It’s never good news when an autonomous automobile is involved in an accident. Lately, Alphabet’s Waymo crashed an autonomous bus in Las Vegas, and Uber managed to flip a self-driving Volvo in Arizona.

In the latest installment of autonomous car accidents across America, a self-driving test car from the Ford-backed startup Argo-AI was severely damaged Wednesday that sent two people to the hospital.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, a box truck ran a red light about 10 a.m. at the 16th and Progress streets in Pittsburgh’s North Side and smashed into an Argo AI self-driving car with four people inside. Two of the four passengers in the Argo AI car were injured and taken to the hospital in stable conditions.

Alan Hall, a communications manager for Ford, who handles public relations on behalf of Argo AI, stated, “we’re aware that an Argo AI test vehicle was involved in an accident. We’re gathering all the information. Our initial focus is on making sure that everyone involved is safe.”

Hall offered limited information on whether the car was in self-driving mode during the accident, and or if the Argo AI fleet has been suspended.'

California to allow driverless cars without backup operators at the wheel
http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/california-driverless-cars-autonomous-selfdriving-dmv-regulations-waymo-uber-cruise-a8230121.html





'​Driverless cars plying California's roads are about to get a little more driverless.

Under new regulation passed by the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), self-driving cars will be permitted to use public roads without carrying a human who can take over if things go awry. The regulations still require people to be supervising the cars remotely.

The news represents a major step for the burgeoning autonomous car industry and eases the path for California to continue playing a prominent role. Arizona has already cleared the way for cars without human operators, issuing a permit this year for Waymo - a unit of Alphabet Inc - to operate a commercial ride-hailing service using a fleet of driverless cars. Spam_A Spam_B “This is a major step forward for autonomous technology in California,” California DMV Director Jean Shiomoto said in a statement.

Prominent companies - including technology giants like Google and Uber and older car manufacturers like Ford and Honda - are all vying for a slice of what they believe will be a lucrative and transformative business.

Fifty companies are currently permitted to test autonomous cars with drivers in California, according to the state’s DMV. Companies will be able to apply for permits to test cars without drivers in April.'

Life-saving vehicles of the future or Uber's driverless death traps? The sci-fi nirvana of hands-free motoring came to a juddering halt after woman, 49, was mowed down crossing a road
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5540023/Ubers-driverless-death-traps.html





'There was no screech of tyres, no last minute change of direction. As the grim video footage now visible on You Tube makes clear, the speeding Uber taxi didn’t even brake before mowing down 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg last weekend as she pushed her bike across a dual carriageway in Tempe, near Phoenix, Arizona.

It was exactly the sort of accident that was supposed never to happen. For this was a ‘safe’ self-driving car, a vision of the future armed with a battery of sensors and automatic brakes for just such an emergency.

For Ms Herzberg, however, the new technology proved fatal. Rushed to hospital, she later died of her injuries – and so became the first pedestrian casualty of the driver-free era. Spam_A Spam_B If the crash was a catastrophe for the victim and her family, it is disastrous, too, for the billion-dollar proponents of the fledgling technology.

Uber has suspended its experimental autonomous taxi fleets in Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Toronto pending multiple enquiries. And the questions will go well beyond the events of Ms Herzberg’s tragic death last Sunday.

Because, despite the huge investment and many promises, autonomous vehicles remain adrift in an ocean of practical problems, moral doubts and, as we now know, fatal consequences. As a transport writer and analyst for more than 25 years, I believe the promise of a world dominated by self-driving cars is a mirage, and a deadly one at that.'
