This is your chance, enter the market of self-moving cars
Have you already heard of the concept of ‘self-moving cars’? Currently, developers are working to create cars that can drive without being steered. Such a car has diverse benefits. First of all, developers are trying to make it possible that these self-moving cars can communicate with other self-moving cars (Rohmensen, 2014). As a consequence, there will be less traffic jams. The cars can then communicate with each other and make sure that they will not overload the roads. Furthermore, less traffic accidents will occur, because the cars will be able to communicate with each other and tell each other where they are driving (Rohmensen, 2014). The cars will also have a more positive effect on the environment (Rohmensen, 2014).
At the moment, the laws of testing self-moving cars are very strict. Each part of the car has to be tested and the testing process is very long and stiff. However, there might be a change under the horizon. Minister Schultz van Haegen wants the Netherlands to become a leader in the self-moving cars industry. Therefore, she would like to liberalize the law on testing self-moving cars. The parliament has to vote on this non-government bill (http://www.nu.nl/gadgets/3907621/wetsvoorstel-grootschalige-tests-met-zelfrijdende-autos.html, 2014).
Liberalizing the law on testing self-moving cars will lead to the entering of new entrants in the self-moving cars industry. Changing the law will make large-scale testing of self-moving cars possible in the Netherlands. This will transform the self-moving car industry into a newly vulnerable market (Granados et al., 2008). More companies can enter the market due to the changes in the law. Furthermore, large profits are expected due to the expectations that moving-cars will be a very popular phenomenon in six years (Rohmensen, 2014).
Thus, for everyone who would want to enter a newly vulnerable market, await your chance. Entering the market of self-moving cars will be very beneficial once the parliament has liberalized the law on testing self-moving cars!
