More people will be allowed on the road as regulations are relaxed, allowing old, disabled, and youth to drive a car.

Most experts see three parts to the autonomous vehicle rollout: human-AI interaction in the next two to five years, fully autonomous travel with regulations in the next five to 10 years, and fully autonomous travel for any human in the next 10 to 20 years.

KPMG still sees autonomous vehicles as indispensable

KPMG s report focuses on the last part, where everyone has an autonomous vehicle or can order one and regulations — at least in the United States — are relaxed to the point where teenagers, elderly, and disabled people are allowed to drive unsupervised.

Automotive-as-a-service could be a potential new market for app developers, creating systems on top of the autonomous architecture.

Connect it to Uber and make money while at work.

We might even see a day where cars are public transport, the same as trains and buses, ordered on an app whenever you need one.
