About this report
Today, there are more than 140 pilot services of Level 4 autonomous vehicles in Europe, China, and the USA. The trials vary significantly on a number of levels – including their level of maturity, the use cases being targeted, and the sectors that would benefit from the technologies being tested.
While these trials share the same development phase and level of autonomy, the landscape for them is already very competitive. Key players within it include legacy OEMs, mobility service providers, start-ups, and even tech giants like Apple and Alphabet. Likewise, players looking to conduct their own L4 trials will equally face a number of legal and regulatory hurdles to ensure their autonomous vehicles can operate safely on public roads.
The Autonomous Guide for L4+ Vehicles & Trials works to understand these services as they get closer to becoming a commercial reality. To do so, it benchmarks the maturity of L4 pilots on the road today while highlighting the latest trends and developments from the space. The key players within this space, alongside their partners, are thoroughly profiled by region to account for the development of L4 autonomy around the world.
