Key Enablers for Making Robotaxis Successful

In an Energy Central article, Guidehouse Insights discusses three factors that can help bring automated mobility to the masses

Robotaxis could be the next step in the ride-hailing evolution for their ability to provide automated urban transportation. 

In an article for Energy Central, Sagie Evbenata, senior research analyst at Guidehouse Insights, discussed how robotaxis have the potential to reduce operating costs as well as provide an affordable and safe form of transportation to customers. 

Evbenata identified three key factors for robotaxi success:

  • Level 4 automated driving technology
  • Consumer demand
  • Profitability

While robotaxis offer potential—Guidehouse Insights anticipates that the global robotaxi market will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 215% to an estimated value of $915 billion by 2030—the vehicles still face numerous challenges and are not expected to become mainstream in the near term.

“Robotaxis are not expected to become a perceptible feature of urban transportation until 2028-2029, when they are anticipated to account for around 4% of ride-hailing rides,” Evbenata said.
