Driverless vehicles in controlled environments, such as dedicated taxi lanes, car parks or airports, will become commonplace in the next few years. However, Level 5 autonomy – with zero human activity or attention in a public setting – is still at least a decade away. The auto industry must cross several high barriers before autonomous driving is safe, green, efficient and affordable for all.

From simulation to cybersecurity, systems integration to infrastructure optimisation, and incremental learning to Autonomy-as-a-Service, our teams are ready to push forward the driverless revolution.

In this whitepaper, Expleo lays down five opportunities for OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers to accelerate the development of autonomy. Drawing on our in-house experience with Autonomous Valet Parking within a controlled environment, we discuss the missing links to driverless driving.
