John J. Slater III, partner in the firm’s Real Estate Department and Business Law Group, was featured in Future of Everything‘s article entitled, “Ask The Thought Leaders: What’s the Future of Autonomous Vehicles?”

From the article:

“Estimates of how soon AVs may be ready for actual use on public roadways vary. There appears to be a consensus that various impediments, such as revisions to motor vehicle laws and insurance issues, are likely to prevent the adoption of AVs on a wide scale basis by consumers for another 20 years. However, a KPMG/Center for Automotive Research report predicts that the first vehicle-to-vehicle infrastructure technologies will be released to the market as early as 2018 or 2019, and that by 2025, there will be sufficient built-in and aftermarket products to support driver automation. Additionally, the report predicts that consumers will begin to adopt AVs on a large scale by 2030. A RCLCO Advisory Report also estimates that there will be an increasing use of AVs by consumers between 2030 and 2035.”
