Autonomous vehicle technology or "self-driving cars" refer to vehicles that use sensory data of the surrounding environment to navigate without the use of human drivers. The technology is still in development, but is an emerging global market. Waymo, a subsidiary of Google's parent company Alphabet Inc, is one of the biggest investors in autonomous vehicle technology R&D. Examples of autonomous vehicle technology components include driver assistance systems, automotive radars, ADAS ultrasonic wave components, LiDAR system sensors, among many others.
Consumer interest for autonomous vehicles is growing around the globe.A poll by Deloitte found that only 47 percent of U.S. respondents were apprehensive to use self-driving vehicles, while 74 percent of U.S. respondents said the same one year earlier. Despite potential advantages, customer concerns still loom over the technology as users are unsure if they are ready to share the road with these driverless vehicles.
