Connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) will have a dramatic impact on the way we live and work. The technology is advancing rapidly and it no longer seems to be a question of ‘if’ but ‘when’.
The introduction of CAVs has the potential to bring significant societal benefits, none less than the substantial increase in safety if implemented right. However with this change we will also see the transformation of a range of sectors as they adapt their offering to participate in the exciting new CAV world.
The possible applications of this technology straddle a variety of different sectors and will change not only the way people travel but the way that we live. To support deployment and optimise the benefits from adoption of these technologies, there is a need for regulatory and operational frameworks to be in place.
