To determine the best roads for autonomous truck deployment, INRIX Research used three key variables: freight volume, congestion levels and incidents rates.
Insights from the AV Freight Study include:
- Our research shows HAV technology holds significant potential to decrease truck-related incidents.
- The United States exhibits strong potential for HAV deployment due to increasing freight demand coupled with a shrinking labor pool
- Although the U.K. has high levels of uncertainty in terms of Brexit, labor, regulatory and environmental considerations, the economic rationale for HAV deployment is strong.
- Due to exceptionally high levels of incidents, Germany could see greater returns on HAV adoption when compared to the U.S. and U.K.
