The sight of driverless test vehicles on our roads has led many to question how much longer it will be until their own vehicles pick them up.

In an attempt to answer that question, this research looks beyond the technology and reveals what needs to happen across policy, public acceptance, law enforcement and more, to make connected autonomous vehicles (CAVs) on UK roads a reality.

The report outlines why:

Technology lags in the UK compared with other countries
Regulation could be a roadblock
Users will need convincing
Insurers could be quickest to evolve
We risk creating a 'twin-speed' world, where national and international progress is made at different rates

The report also suggests the right steps to take to ensure that the UK can keep pace, as we move to a new world of autonomy.
