Key Highlights

The motor industry is investing heavily in self-driving technology. According to data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT) and JATO Dynamics, 30.7% of new cars registered in 2015 were fitted with safety-enhancing collision-warning systems as standard, with the technology offered as an option on an additional 27.4% of cars.

In February 2017, Nissan trialed a self-driving version of its Leaf model in London. The test was completed successfully without any incident without a crash.

The AV version of the Leaf had a virtual map, twelve cameras, five radars and four lasers. The trial introduced members of the public to the reality of the future, citing a reduction in accidents, traffic, emissions, road rage and bills as likely outcomes.

Volvo announced plans to introduce a fleet of driverless XC90s to London in 2017 and at least 100 such vehicles on Britain’s streets by 2018. According to Volvo, the scheme will be used to collect data on self-driving in a city environment.

The real-world information will be used to determine how to progress with technology.

The Data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT), the annual turnover of the UK automotive industry increased to a record GBP71.6 billion (US$89 billion) in 2015. For the same year, Insurance Intelligence Center [IIC] estimates the total direct premium written by the insurance industry for the same year at GBP15.5 billion, (US$20.8 billion).

The recent data from the UK Association of British Insurers (ABI), revealed that UK motor insurance premiums reached their highest recorded levels in the fourth quarter of 2016 (Q4 2016), rising more than five times the rate of inflation. The rate of premium increase was attributed to successive rises in insurance premium tax (IPT), higher repair costs, and the rising costs of whiplash injury claims.

The outcome of the UK’s government consultation into driverless vehicles and adoption identified that although the UK legal and regulatory framework is not a barrier to the testing of AVs on public roads, the incumbent laws governing data privacy, road traffic laws and patent licensing make the facilitation of AV adoption problematic. The report also set out the UK government plans to introduce a single insurer model for driverless and conventional cars, and identified 2018 as the preferred date to amend road traffic legislation to take AVs into consideration.
