Transportation is a sector of activity in permanent change. From airplanes to cars, trains and boats all forms of transportation aim at meeting personal or business needs of displacement of persons and goods. Those needs include safety, reliability, on time with the best effectiveness, and finally, providing the best price. This paper aims at studying car transportation’s consequences regarding last developments that culminate in the self-driving cars. This study analyses the impact of such changes at social and industrial level, considering also the coexistence of traditional cars and self-driving cars in diverse aspects. The authors aim to establish a proficient debate on such important changes for the near future, to create awareness of the potential consequences of such societal and business revolution and generate some conclusions addressing these complex challenges for the years to come. This paper also issues some recommendations for the coexistence of self-driving, autonomous and traditional cars during the transitory period.
