For the automated driving system (ADS) industry, 2020 proved to be just as challenging as it was for most business segments thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Lockdowns caused disruptions to on-road testing that in many cases lasted several months. However, 2020 also helped to highlight business opportunities, particularly around the delivery market for automated vehicles (AVs).
The trend toward consolidation continued with both small startups and large well-funded companies giving up on going it alone. Uber decided to cease its internal development of ADS, selling its Advanced Technology Group to Aurora, and Zoox sold itself to Amazon. Volkswagen completed its investment in Argo AI and transferred its ADS team to Argo, and Aptiv and Hyundai Motor Group created their Motional joint venture. Volvo and Fiat Chrysler both teamed up with Waymo to use the ADS developed by the Alphabet subsidiary. At the opposite end of the market, Voyage was acquired by Cruise and its unique model of providing mobility services to retirement communities is being shelved.
This Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard report differs from prior rankings for AVs. Rather than focusing on the companies that will be deploying AVs to the end consumer market, this report evaluates the companies actually developing the ADSs. All of the companies included are developing systems for light to medium duty vehicles, and that is the primary focus of the evaluation. A total of 15 companies have been ranked, and the report assesses which companies are best equipped to be the leaders in the development of ADSs.
