In June 2021 there will be a major Exhibition and Conference on Autonomous Vehicles in California organised by automotive manufacturers and IT companies who will meet with leading industry experts to discuss the latest developments https://www.autonomous-vehicles-conference.com
Over the last four years there have been many successful tests of self-driving cars and vehicles in the UK, China, Japan, the US and around the world. Clearly there needs to be further progress until these vehicles become mainstream but advances are being made rapidly.
You are expected to research both academic and non-academic articles on Autonomous Vehicles (AV) discussing how AVs are likely to affect business and society in general. You should consider key issues such as the impact on existing businesses and the new business opportunities that will arise. You must also consider the privacy and security risks and other potential problems and issues. What will cities and towns need to do to plan for the transition to autonomous vehicles?
Note: Many articles in this new field will be from quality news sources and consultancy reports but you must also draw on some academic journal articles as well as other sources in order to present a balanced summary of current thinking in this emerging discipline. Please remember that company websites are biased – they always promote themselves and what they are doing – you should therefore try to refer to a minimum of company websites. You will need to find independent, objective sources of information as much as you can such as academic journal articles etc. to support your work. You must reference ALL sources appropriately using the Harvard Referencing System
Format: Business Report with four parts: Executive Summary, Introduction, Main body and Conclusion. References should be based upon the Harvard Referencing System
Word count: 1500 words (the References listed and any appendices are OUTSIDE of this word count and do not count in the 1500 words)
* The extra 150 words are towards the references
