Through Econsult Solutions’ thought leadership joint venture, ESI ThoughtLab, our team supported KPMG in developing The Autonomous Vehicles Readiness Index (AVRI), a tool to help measure the level of preparedness for autonomous vehicles across 30 countries and jurisdictions. It is a composite index that combines 28 individual measures from a range of sources into a single score. The 2020 edition of the AVRI adds five new countries: Belgium, Chile, Denmark, Italy, and Taiwan. The AVRI indicators are organized by four key pillars—policy and legislation, technology and innovation, infrastructure, and consumer acceptance. As some countries and jurisdictions devolve responsibility for transport to local authorities, this year’s report also features coverage of five notable cities—Beijing, Detroit, Helsinki, Pittsburgh, and Seoul—which are undertaking ground-breaking work at a municipal level.
