Vehicle-to-Everything Connectivity Infrastructure Trends

Self-driving or autonomous vehicle (AV) technology may improve road safety and reduce traffic accidents -- the vast majority of which are caused by human error -- as well as provide mobility for the elderly or disabled population around the globe.

ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) are the core elements of AVs and their adoption in production automobiles is increasing rapidly, partly as a result of stringent safety specifications.

Autonomous Vehicle Market Development

According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, the annual production of self-driving cars will reach 14.5 million in 2025 -- that's up from only a few thousands in 2020 -- to give a global installed base of more than 22 million consumer vehicles by 2025.

The study found that the market adoption of AV technology is likely to accelerate over the next few years, propelled by new regulatory requirements, environmental pressures, and rapid technological developments.


The market analysts found that driverless vehicles will have a disruptive impact on transportation around the world, and will ultimately lead to millions of professional drivers being made redundant. Juniper predicts that city-based taxi services will be one of the early-adopters of driverless vehicles.

"The introduction of driverless cars will result in fundamental changes to the automotive world and society in general; and it is clear that the boundaries between private vehicle ownership, car sharing and rental fleets will increasingly become blurred," said Gareth Owen, associate analyst at Juniper Research.

However, the study findings also uncovered that following the first-ever fatality in an AV vehicle -- the 'Tesla S' accident reported in Florida -- the automotive industry must convince the public that their self-driving cars are proven to be safe.

Outlook for Automotive Technology Evolution

Juniper found that a number of major automotive OEMs -- including BMW, Toyota and GM -- are accelerating their AV development and testing program, and now have comprehensive plans to launch production vehicles.

As a result, Juniper analysts forecast that driverless vehicles will start to become widespread in the 2020-2025 time-frame -- although they will likely be confined to urban centers initially, due to the need for extensive Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) infrastructure.

The Internet of Things (IoT) communication connectivity technology that enables V2X will be a significant key component for the widespread advancement of autonomous vehicle development and deployment.

The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for global BDA spending over the 2021-2025 forecast period will be 12.8 percent. Big Data Analytics Market Development "As executives seek solutions to enable better, faster decisions, we're seeing relatively healthy BDA spending across all industries. Leveraging data for insights into everything from internal business operations to the customer journey is top of mind and of strategic importance," said Jessica Goepfert, vice

Warehouse Robot Deployment Gains New Momentum

The retail and wholesale back-office infrastructure market is being transformed by technology. The warehousing industry has accelerated automation efforts due to the increased order volume and labor shortages driven by the global pandemic. In addition to technology solutions such as handheld devices with enhanced capabilities, autonomous, collaborative, and mobile robots are proving to be the fastest-growing productivity-enhancing solution in the warehouse workspace. Commercial Robotics Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, global commercial robot revenue in warehouses will have a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of over 23 percent from 2021 to 2030 and exceed $51 billion by 2030. "Mobile robots are at the heart of the warehouse robotics market and account for most shipments and revenue. These robots, made up of Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs), are being used to move goods within the warehouse a

Hybrid Work: How to Enhance Employee Productivity

When you hire qualified talent for a key role and trust them to perform, you'll likely achieve the best outcome. Skilled and experienced people will deliver results, regardless of the challenges. That's a key lesson learned from the pandemic experience as most knowledge workers were asked to work from their homes. However, some resist returning to an open-plan office. It's unacceptable. Meanwhile, forward-thinking leaders decided a "return to normal" is undesirable, and in hindsight, everyone should aspire to be more accomodating than before. Therefore, location flexibility is okay. Hybrid Workforce Market Development How will people adapt to these changes? They'll apply the modern IT tools at their disposal. They'll learn new skills and thrive. Nearly 80 percent of employees are now successfully using online collaboration tools for work in 2021 -- that's up from just over half of workers in 2019, according to the latest market study by Gartner.
