Robo-taxis are the self-driving taxis that are autonomous vehicles, which are operated by an on-demand mobility service. They are self-driving vehicles any human involvement for the operation of the vehicle. With the introduction of automation in vehicles, the demand for self-driving vehicles has increased, which has supplemented the growth of robo-taxi across the globe. Also, autonomous vehicles have gained popularity among customers which has made companies to develop vehicles that do not require a human to drive the vehicle. With the introduction of automation in vehicles, the need for a human driver has been reduced thereby reducing the chances of accidents caused due to human errors. Also, a robo-taxi is equipped with various sensors such as RADAR, LiDAR and others, which makes the vehicle efficient to operate eventually leading to the growth of robo taxi market across the globe.

Passenger transportation is projected as the most lucrative segments

Demand for Fuel Efficient and Emission Free Vehicles

With the increased trend for automation among vehicles, the demand for fuel efficient and emission free vehicles has increased across the globe. This increased demand has enabled the manufacturers to develop emission free vehicles, which supplement the robo taxi market growth. Robo-taxis are intended to be completely autonomous and thus, require a better and more efficient fuel system to operate the vehicle. Also, the introduction of electric and fuel cell-based vehicles reduce their dependency on fossil fuels to a larger extent. This leads to reduction in pollution, as they do not emit air pollutants. Also, the increase in awareness toward the consequences of air pollution and rise in levels of traffic & greenhouse gas emission drive the adoption of fuel efficient and emission free vehicle, as robo-taxi is eco-friendly than other conventional vehicles in terms of fuel efficiency. Hence, the demand for fuel efficient and emission-free vehicles supplements the growth of the robo taxi market across the globe.

Ultrasonis Sensors is projected as the most lucrative segment

Need for Better Road Safety and Traffic Control 

Robo-taxis have several advantages over traditional vehicles in terms of safety and traffic congestion. An autonomous vehicle is installed with a number of sensors including LiDAR, RADAR, camera, and GPS. These sensors are short range (providing details of moving objects near the vehicle) as well as long range (providing details of high speed oncoming vehicles) to help the vehicle sense any object or obstacle in its way, thus eliminating the chances of accidents. 

Robo-taxis can also help reduce traffic congestion. Based on a study by University of Illinois, it was proven that one autonomous car stuck in a traffic congestion with 20 other human driven cars can ease the congestion by controlling its speed and of all the other cars in the jam. The fuel consumption will also be reduced with the use of autonomous vehicle as the sensors such as LiDAR, RADAR and others used in vehicles operate as per the traffic congestion, thereby switching off the vehicles in extreme traffic congestion.  However, autonomous vehicle moving at a controlled pace can reduce the use of fuel. Thus, the need for better road safety and traffic control leads to the growth of the robo taxi market across the globe.

Hybrid Vehicles is projected as the most lucrative segments

High R&d Cost for Implementation

Robo taxis consist of more than 50 sensors including LiDAR, RADAR, and camera, which are installed all around the vehicle and help build a safety circumference. Any obstacle approaching the vehicle can be immediately detected using these sensors. However, these sensors are not economically priced. A high quality long range LiDAR can even cost up to $75,000. And apart from the hardware cost, the vehicle also needs software, which can extract information from the sensors and control the vehicle. Therefore, vehicle production and large-scale deploy with cost-effective hardware pose to be major challenges for the manufacturers, which is expected to be the restraining factor for the robo taxi market during the forecast period.

Government Regulations

The government of several countries implement regulations in support of autonomous vehicles. For instance, in September 2017, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill for Safely Ensuring Lives Future Deployment and Research in Vehicle Evolution Act, or Self Drive Act, which is waiting to get cleared from the Senate. The role of this act is to establish a federal framework for the regulation of self-driving cars. Earlier, the autonomous vehicle market players were interested in testing driverless technology. They need to apply exemptions from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) federal motor vehicle safety standards; however, the agency grants only 2,500 exemptions per year. But the Self Drive Act is projected to increase that cap to 25,000 per year initially, and expand it up to 100,000 annually in three years’ time. Such type of government regulations supplements the growth of robo taxi market across the globe.
