Today’s auto manufacturers are fast approaching the beginning of a fundamental shift in how they must bring a vehicle to market. As a result of the continued advancement in autonomous driving technology, manufacturers must now be cognizant on how to transition segments of their existing customer base into early adopters when this technology hits the market. If executed in an improper manner, automakers may be subject to a reduction in their market share as new upstart competitors gain a foot-hold in this segment.

With your understanding of current consumer market conditions, what is an example of the largest hurdle an automotive manufacturer has to bring a fully self-driving car to market?

The top teams will be notified by Friday, February 1st, and each team member will be asked to register for the competition.
