Autonomous vehicles are on the road to ubiquity

The KPMG 2020 Autonomous Vehicles Readiness Index (AVRI) now ranks the preparedness of 30 countries and jurisdictions in the race for autonomous vehicles (AVs). The third edition of the AVRI adds five more countries and jurisdictions as well as five notable cities to its coverage of one of the most exciting areas of transport technology. As the world prepares for a new reality post-COVID-19, shifting user and environmental requirements for transportation could accelerate the next round of AV development and deployment around the world.

❝ Singapore’s pole position in the KPMG AVRI in 2020 reflects the local government’s commitment and continued efforts to build receptivity and adoption of AV. The decision to expand testing areas for AV to one-tenth of the public roads and ongoing investments in the electrification of transport – an important pre-cursor for AV adoption, which we have been advocating– were key factors among others that led Singapore to top the Index.

The ongoing Covid-19 situation has brought about new requirements for transport such as a need for more contactless interactions or better crowd control, all of which can be addressed through AV technology. We believe that continued developments in AV regulation and infrastructure along with improving overall public awareness will continue the transformational potential of AV technology for not just Singapore but all countries. ❞
