Despite near constant chatter about self-driving vehicles revolutionizing how the world gets around, a new report says the transformation will take longer than many have predicted.
"The reality is autonomous-drive cars will not reach large numbers until close to 2040," said Hans-Werner Kaas of McKinsey. Kaas has written a new study looking at the expected development and impact of self-driving vehicles. "The hype is getting ahead of the reality."
Kaas sees autonomous drive technology being quickly developed, but expects implementation to be more gradual than many have predicted.
