News, Analysis & Perspective on Autonomous Vehicles

Advanced tolling maybe the killer app for autonomous vehicle test tracks

Since the days of the DARPA grand challenge, Autonomous Vehicle (AV) Technology has generated a great deal of excitement.  Companies such as Google GOOGL -0.3% (now Waymo), Tesla TSLA +3.8%, and perhaps even Apple AAPL +2.5% have invested millions to develop this technology. The venture capital community has invested millions into a large number ofstartups, and of course the traditional automotive OEMs have participated with internal investments, joint ventures, and partnerships.  Academia has been similarly energized with an explosion in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and connected vehicle conferences. With all of this excitement (with associated hype), governmental bodies have looked for places to engage with investments motivated towards economic development. No one wants to be left out.
