Which countries are most prepared for driverless cars? The question is pertinent because autonomous vehicles (AVs) will revolutionize transportation and the way people live and work. The 2018 KPMG Autonomous Vehicles Readiness Index (AVRI) offers an in-depth view of what’s needed for countries to meet the challenges of self-driving vehicles. This is the first study of its kind, examining where countries are in terms of progress and capacity for adapting AV technology, and the top ten are:

1 The Netherlands
2 Singapore
3 The United States
4 Sweden
5 The United Kingdom
6 Germany
7 Canada
8 United Arab Emirates
9 New Zealand
10 South Korea

Quote: “There will be economic benefits, because the time we currently spend driving a car becomes productive time in an AV that can be spent working, relaxing or sleeping. But moreover, there will be social benefit, including a vast reduction in the 1.3 million people killed each year in car accidents, and accessibility for those who currently cannot drive, because of age or disability.”
