I tend to agree 5-10 years and we will see extensive rollout in Australia starting with taxi and light commercial with I think heavy vehicle along major corridors like Syd - Mel depo to depo.
Interesting comment is that Australia has $200B locked up in personal vehicles. If Uber/taxi industry could reduce their costs significantly, how many of us would be able to cut our 2nd or even primary vehicle needs and the costs?
Meanwhile the move to driveless will also see a progressive reduction in revenues to states and feds especially as more vehicles use less fuel and or go electric. What will be the alt ways to fund the road budgets?
