Move over Tesla, electric cars aren’t the only technology that is poised to disrupt the auto industry. In May, Google unveiled a prototype for a driverless car, and since then, the entire automotive world has been keeping a close eye on the nascent technology. An automotive startup ourselves, everyone at Mojo Motors is paying attention to the phenomenon.
We’ve compiled our own research publishing two infographics on the subject. We spoke to industry experts and used their predictions to create a timeline of when you’ll be able to buy a driverless car. We also created a map of where driverless cars are already legal. The map was updated recently following a July 24 ruling in Iowa legalizing autonomous vehicles. As our map shows, legislation is in progress in several other states and we estimate that many more states will join Iowa, California, Michigan, Nevada, and Florida in allowing driverless cars to operate on their roads.
Last week, Mojo Founder and CEO, Paul Nadjarian, joined Michael Graham of Atlanta News Radio 106.7 to discuss the future of driverless cars. Paul shares his thoughts on the varying political, economic, and social factors that will shape the future of driverless cars in the United States and beyond.
