Fatality Cost 

MITIGATING COLLISIONS TO SAVE LIVES

AUTONOMOUS DRIVING LOSSES RELATED TO FATAL COLLISIONS

Here are projected autonomous driving losses for a nominal manufacturer of 1M cars per year.

Assumptions:
  Sales: 1M cars/year.
  Price:  $40k/car.
  Declination fraction per fatal collision in which autonomous driving is involved: 5%.

Results:

Loss of annual revenue per fatal collision: $2B per fatality per year.

The recent fatalities in self-driving vehicles have received outsized negative publicity. The car-buying public, and even several US Senators, are concluding that self-driving vehicles are risky, and are pushing for government safety regulators to be tough watchdogs.

As the car-buying public is extremely sensitive to even a single fatality ascribable to self-driving, the safety bar is much higher for self-driving than for human drivers.  Therefore, car companies will be required to do more than ever before to prevent ALL avoidable collisions - and to minimize the harm if unavoidable.  Otherwise, they may become faced with very severe government safety regulations, and risk losing business.

A forward-thinking automotive company would receive great value for IP that enabled autonomous collision avoidance and harm minimization.  Each collision involving self-driving vehicles probably costs the brand millions of dollars in lost sales, and each fatality probably costs them hundreds of times that amount.

ARI offers compelling and well-supported IP - with hundreds of Claims which provide a solid position on collision avoidance and harm minimization.
