Why closed environments can be used as a steppingstone towards the full potential of AV
Autonomous vehicles (AVs) have the potential to shape urban life and significantly modify travel behaviors. When one thinks of AVs, it is therefore difficult not to imagine the world of tomorrow. While a driverless future might be easy to imagine, its full potential is yet to be reached.
Legal restrictions and the technological readiness level of AV limit the current capabilities of AV. While many use cases for AV are limited due to these barriers, the deployment of AV solutions in closed environments can be seen as the first steps to unlocking AV’s full value.
The implementation of AV in closed environments can act as an ideal testing ground to further develop automation technology and pave the way towards fully automated solutions.
