Preparing for the driverless revolution

Governments across the world acknowledge that automated vehicle technology is here and that, within ten years, driverless vehicles will be at the core of their national system of intelligent mobility. In the meantime, governments confront a range of challenges in common - including repositioning local markets and regulation, reshaping government institutions, reassessing planning assumptions, interpreting benefits for society, assuring safety, capturing a financial return for the community from the new commercial uses of public roads and emerging business models. In April 2017, Roads Australia the national peak body for road infrastructure stakeholders, led a delegation of senior government and transport industry officials on a global study visit to find out how international jurisdictions are preparing for their driverless roll-out. This report offers insights into what we learnt from public and private enterprises in the USA (San Francisco and Pittsburgh), the UK and Sweden. It discusses options for governments and industry to take forward in this new world.
