Britain at “midway point” towards autonomous vehicles

A group of transport experts have told a webinar that it could be another 15-20 years before driverless cars are in daily use by the monoring public.

Road Safety GB reports that the Festival of Road Safety event heard from Coventry University, Zenzic and Oxfordshire County Council about the road safety challenges around the technology.

They pointed to the UK being eighth in the KPMG Autonomous Vehicles Readiness Index, behind Singapore, The Netherlands, Norway, USA, Finland, Sweden, South Korea and UAE.

The panel discussed the options of development around “everything somewhere”, where a car is full autonomous in certain situations or “something everywhere” which means a car can carry out certain operations in every location. They also discussed the current projects being undertaken.
