I don't think the vehicles need to be autonomous to have more data collected. I think GPS , smart consoles and other developments will generate most of the data.

While the costs of bandwith may very well decrease significantly I can only suppose that our automomous vehicles will increase substantially in cost with the benefit of course of added safety and a dramatic decrease in accidents. It may not be so easy though to guess if auto insurance cost will decrease. My guess is probably not.

5G will cause an ifrastructure change that will dramatically increase bandwidth and drive down costs. That will make the cost of acquiring all of this data go down and foster adoption.

It will be interesting to watch developments over the next decade as we try to figure out all the permutations in what causes accidents and then engineer roadways, signs, and hardware and software and the wireless environments to try to preven as many accidents as possible.

I agree that we will be able to get road fatalities now near zero but I think it will take more than smart cars.  I live in one of the country's most dangerous cities for pedestrians and have to say that it's not always the driver that is at fault.  I watch people walk across 6 lane roads and stand on a foot wide median with cars going past at 50mph almost every day.  It won't matter how smart a car is if we don't improve the roadways as well and there are a lot of options there.

I agree with Seth about the benefits of having critical components (and I'd add capability) in the local hardware. Betond just the issue of robotic vehicles, I'm not comfortable with this whole trend of moving just about everything to the "cloud".

By 1999 we had over 6 times the number of people driving cars than we did in 1925 but due to technological advancements the annual death rate had declined from 18 per 100 million vehicle miles traveled (VMT) in 1925 to 1.7 per 100 million VMT in 1997--a 90% decrease. 

Driving was even more dangerous before 1925.  Even though we had cars that could only go 20 miles per hour Detroit had over 31 automobile accidents in just two months during the summer of 1908.

While cars have caused other problems, in the area of fatalities technology (and stop signs) has been one area where humans really did succeed. 

I think with more analytics and technology such a rearview cameras we can get fatalities down to almost zero.

Re: "However, as much as bandwidth and latency may have improved across large distances, there is still no real substitute for the response time of local hardware"

Despite the great improvements 5G will bring I believe with machinary such as automobiles you still want to keep the critical components in the hardware.  While I would like to believe people would still know how to drive with the internet or connection down I'd rather not take chances.

I don't think 5G will be the catalyst here, for logging simple data even the second gen data services were enough bandwidth.  What will need to happen is pricing for data only connections will need to drop dramatically or a whole new mobile data model will need to appear.  That said, I'm wondering if we'll see a small market pop up targeting all the cities who rolled out municipal wireless networks years ago and using those networks for data capture of city assets.

As we start to roll out 5G networks and more things become connected, this will only lead to more data being generated . This gives us the opportunity to do new things with this data. I think the edge will only become more important.
