We are pleased to release the Geodata report – analysis and recommendations for self-driving vehicle testing, Zenzic consultation findings, now available to download.
The Geodata report has been built upon the consultation findings following the first published edition in July 2019. Zenzic has worked closely with OS to address the need for common approaches and standards for the use of geospatial data in connected and automated mobility (CAM) in the UK.
Background to the report
The market for self-driving vehicles in the UK, specifically that for road vehicles using connected and self-driving technologies, is projected to be worth up to £52 billion in 2035, capturing 6% of the £907 billion global market.
Ensuring the success of self-driving vehicles is a complex challenge, and one which will require collaboration between government and multiple industries to ensure its success.
One of the major complexities relates to the use of geospatial data to aid the routing, navigation and safe operation of vehicles.
Zenzic commissioned Ordnance Survey (OS) to explore these geospatial data requirements when considering the life cycle of testing and the data interoperability requirements to enable UK plc to provide an exemplar test facility ecosystem to attract vehicle manufacturers wishing to conduct testing.
