The Autonomous Vehicle Readiness Index shows which countries are most prepared for driverless cars.
Autonomous vehicles (AV) are poised to revolutionise not only transportation but the way people live and work throughout the world. But are countries ready for an AV-driven future?
The 2018 KPMG Autonomous Vehicles Readiness Index (AVRI) provides an in-depth view of what it takes for countries to meet the challenges of self-driving vehicles, evaluating the preparedness of a cross-section of 20 countries globally.
