In its recent report, the company outlines growth of semi-autonomous and fully autonomous vehicles, as driverless technology continues to accelerate. Companies such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Ford, Toyota, and others are investing more money and research time into autonomous vehicles, though most interested drivers will have to likely wait until 2025 - if not later - for prices to drop.

 

The idea that autonomous cars are no longer something from a science fiction story is impressive, though the realization that it's just a few years away could scare drivers. However, automakers and technology companies plan to continue market the booming technology to skeptical drivers.
