United Kingdom Connected Vehicle Market 2018-2023 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

July 24, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 24, 2018--The “United Kingdom Connected Vehicle Market (2018-2023)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The United Kingdom connected vehicle market is expected to show double-digit growth rates. The U.K. government is realizing its dream of making the nation a self-driving research hub. UK Autodrive, a publicly funded consortium that includes Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, and TATA Motors, announced a new set of trials with a focus on self-driving cars and vehicles that can instantly share information with other motorists and city infrastructure. Recent testing and development signaling systems, that can be disseminated by emergency services - ambulances, fire trucks and police cars - to nearby drivers, advising about areas that should be avoided, are being developed.

UK Autodrive is constantly looking at connected traffic lights that could help self-driving vehicles optimize their speed limits, avoid red lights and reduce congestion. The team’s autonomous vehicles are tied to a half-mile route in the city center, while a second group focused entirely on “connected” features , navigate a longer six-mile course.

Initiatives are currently taken to make self-driving cars a reality very soon; the self-driving cars are expected to have a backup driver in case of an emergency. The test routes are small as of now. Milton Keynes, for instance, has been using the Lutz Pathfinder pod as a potential form of public transportation. A larger, four-person shuttle was also tested at the Greenwich Peninsula, while a self-driving van delivered groceries in the quiet neighborhood near Woolwich Arsenal station.

Key growth factors

Demand for a connected driving experience is growing rapidly in this region. Major auto-makers and OEMs are working to make this a reality very soon. Regulatory initiatives relating to safety and security will have a decisive effect on the adoption of OEM telematics all across Europe.
