The UK government must look into the potential human and financial implications of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV).
That’s according to the House of Lords Science and Technology Select Committee’s report titled ‘Connected and Autonomous Vehicles: The Future".
According to the research published today, the government’s work on CAV has so far focused too heavily on research problems and testing technologies for highly automated vehicles with inadequate effort on thinking about deployment.
The potential advantages of driverless cars, the report states, are many, but more research is required to understand the scale or likelihood of these claimed benefits.
"The government should commission detailed research to challenge cherished assumptions and provide a realistic indication of the benefits CAV could provide."
