The autonomous vehicle industry is in the process of rerouting. Early AV leaders said fully autonomous cars would hit the mass market by 2020 or 2021—Elon Musk even promised a self-driving Tesla by 2017. But with the end of the decade in sight, two things are certain: The autonomous future remains a long way off, and AV-makers are going to have to change their plan for how to get there.

In this presentation, we show you what this new path looks like and lay out the step-by-step changes we’ll see on the way to full autonomy. We make the case that AV developers’ early shortcomings have ushered in a new era of collaboration and realism. We highlight key industry partnerships and explain what incentivized companies to start working together.

Here’s a preview of our presentation on the long path ahead to self-driving cars:
