The Rise of the "Passenger Economy"
Intel predicts autonomous driving will create a new "passenger economy" as a result of the idle time when drivers become riders. Trina Van Pelt, Managing Director of Intel Capital, explains how autonomous driving and smart city technologies will result in a $7 trillion market. Van Pelt says $200 billion of revenue is expected to be generated from the new applications that will emerge from pilotless vehicles. Intel sees a future with services and applications in "car-venience". These opportunities range from onboard beauty salons to fast-casual dining. Ultimately, vehicles will become transportation experience pods. Van Pelt was with us the same day Waymo announced it was testing its self-driving cars on public roads with no one at the wheel.
