Hosted by Stan Lepeak, Global Research Director,
KPMG LLP Management Consulting


Can’t wait to jump into a driverless car for your next commute, shopping excursion, or airport trip? Panicked at the idea of ceding driving control to a vehicle weighing a couple of tons?

Whatever your personal take, driverless vehicles are on the path to becoming a more mainstream reality faster than many of us might have dreamed. Indeed, the behemoth and upstart vehicle manufacturers and technology companies investing in this potentially multi-trillion dollar market may be bringing driverless vehicles to your local “island of autonomy” in the next six to 24 months.

In this podcast, Gary Silberg, KPMG’s Americas head of automotive, sat down with Stan Lepeak to discuss:

  • What KPMG means by “island of autonomy”, and insights into those already mapped
  • The concerns around insurance, liability, and other related issues
  • Why vehicle manufacturers, technology firms, governments, cities, and energy companies need to start engaging now with their boards, management, and external ecosystem members to determine how to move ahead.
