Connected and autonomous road vehicles

House of Commons Library, June 12, 2017

It includes discussion of the potential benefits of road-based CAVs; barriers to adoption; and the evolving regulatory framework. The paper also touches on wider considerations, including public perceptions and acceptance of so called ‘self-driving’ technology; potential cyber security issues; and the labour market implications of vehicle automation.
