Product Development: More than 50 Sensors, Including LiDAR, RADAR, and Cameras, are Installed in Robot Taxis to Help Create a Safety Perimeter

Robo-taxis are autonomous self-driving vehicles used as taxis run by on-demand mobility services. An increase in ride-sharing use and sales, population growth, and the adoption of level 4 automation for vehicles all contribute to the size of the global robot-transport market. Globally, governments are enacting stringent regulations to limit the use of fossil fuel-powered vehicles. The increased testing and use of self-driving cars and the adoption of cutting-edge driver assistance features are expected to present lucrative opportunities for key players competing in the global robo-taxi market. A robot-taxi is also outfitted with various sensors, including RADAR, LiDAR, and others, which makes the vehicle efficient to operate and ultimately fuels the expansion of the robo-taxi market globally.

Data Bridge Market Research shows that the Global Robo-Taxi Market was valued at USD 1.09 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 61.07 billion by 2029, registering a CAGR of 65.34% during the forecast period of 2022-2029.

" Growing Interest in Fuel-Efficient and Pollution-Free Vehicles"

The demand for fuel-efficient and emission-free vehicles has grown significantly worldwide due to the trend toward increased vehicle automation. The manufacturers have created emission-free vehicles due to the increased demand, which supports the expansion of the robot taxi market. Since robo-taxis are designed to be fully autonomous, a better and more effective fuel system is needed to power the vehicle. Introducing fuel cells and electric vehicles has significantly reduced their reliance on fossil fuels. As they don't emit air pollutants, this results in less pollution. Additionally, as robo-taxis are more environmentally friendly than other conventional vehicles, the adoption of fuel-efficient and emission-free vehicles is driven by an increase in awareness regarding the negative effects of air pollution and an increase in traffic volumes and greenhouse gas emissions. Hence, the demand for fuel-efficient and emission-free vehicles supplements the growth of the global robo-taxi market.

What restraints the growth of the Global Robo-Taxi Market?

"High Implementation and R&D Cost"

More than 50 sensors, including LiDAR, RADAR, and cameras, are installed around robo taxis to help create a safety perimeter. These sensors allow for immediate detection of any incoming obstacle. A premium long-range LiDAR can even cost up to $75,000 in some cases. The vehicle also needs software to extract data from the sensors and control the vehicle, in addition to the hardware cost..
