Sensors: Heart of the Robotic Mobility Disruption

In 2019 production of robotic vehicles was in the range of a few thousand worldwide.Yole expects production volumes to reach 400k units annually, with cumulative production of 1 billion units by 2032...

"Disruption is coming to our streets and cities" says Pierre Cambou, Principal analyst, Imaging, at Yole Développement (Yole). "Mobility has defined the way humans have organized their society for ages and our world is currently being reimagined around a new generation of robotic vehicles. They appeared insignificant two years ago when we published our first report on the matter, today they are on the brink of changing the world as we know it".

In this context, the market research & strategy consulting company Yole, intensively analyses the robotic mobility market and technologies and offers a comprehensive understanding of the industry in the Sensors for Robotic Mobility 2020 report.

Current means of mobility are hitting five major limitations. The first concerns the most vulnerable modality, namely that pedestrian safety is deteriorating. Second, in the major cities where people tend to live nowadays, public transportation is facing challenges in terms of efficiency and cost. Third, cars are no longer the grand solution to mobility they used to be. Congestion and cost of ownership is undermining this option. Four, air mobility is currently enjoying rapid expansion, but travel remains difficult as city to airport connections remain poor. Fifth, CO2 emissions due to all current means of mobility make urgent change vital. Regulators and customers are willing to change in both top-down and bottom-up manners.

According to Pierre Cambou: "The mobility industry will have to adapt, and for some this will be a massive opportunity. In this respect robotic mobility clearly checks all the right boxes. Whether it is robotic cars, shuttles or electric VTOL aircraft, the combination of all these new modalities will provide "MaaS" from inner cities, from cities to suburbs and cities to cities. Previous means of mobility will not disappear, just as cinema still existed while TV was massively deployed. Regardless of the naysayers, robotic vehicle technology will provide the Netflix of mobility before 2032".
