The Netherlands is the country most prepared for an autonomous vehicle future according to KPMG’s 2018 Autonomous Vehicles Readiness Index (AVRI). The first-of-its-kind study evaluated 20 countries overall. The study judged countries on their ability to adopt and integrate self-driving vehicles. The study also highlights best practices for accelerating AV technology.
But there’s more for anyone interested in autonomous driving.
  • NACTO is an association of 62 major North American cities and ten transit agencies formed to exchange transportation ideas, insights, and practices and cooperatively approach national transportation issues. NACTO’s mission is to build cities as places for people, with safe, sustainable, accessible and equitable transportation choices that support a strong economy and vibrant quality of life.

Have a look at the latest research of Fehr & Peers, on how will autonomous vehicles influence the future of travel?
  • The National Street Service Cities Program is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to make streets better for their community. During the program, people look at, listen to, and observe their street; create opportunities to help others reimagine what the street is for; and collaborate on projects to make streets welcoming for everyone.
