Testing self-driving cars on UK roads

Soon self-driving vehicles will transform urban environments. Autonomous vehicles will travel the streets and travelers will share rides. The UK government estimates that the global market for so-called connected and autonomous vehicles could be £907 billion by 2035.

UK-based FiveAI (https://five.ai/), a specialist in building self-driving-vehicle technology, including artificial intelligence, computer vision and robotics, is leading a project, supported by the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, that will look at the technical, regulatory, safety and social challenges faced by an urban commuter service based on shared self-driving electric vehicles.
