Global Autonomous Vehicles Regulatory Report - 2021 Growth Opportunities -

·4-min read

DUBLIN, September 14, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Autonomous Vehicles Regulatory Growth Opportunities" report has been added to's offering.

Partners in the autonomous driving value chain are on the brink of developing advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving systems to enhance the safety and convenience requirements of the driver, passengers, and other vulnerable road users. Increasing automated safety requirements have necessitated the need for a robust regulatory framework for autonomous vehicles.

Regulations for autonomous vehicle testing and consumer deployment are typically developed and agreed upon on a regional level. Regulatory bodies, such as the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), along with countries such as Germany, Japan, and the United States, are working toward refining a global regulatory framework for autonomous vehicles. Global deployment regulations for passenger vehicles are at level 3 autonomy, while several countries have commenced testing up to level 5 autonomy.

In this study on autonomous vehicle regulations, the publisher provides an overview of testing and deployment regulations in 27 countries, including China, across the Europe, Asia-Pacific, and North America. The study also covers the autonomous vehicle testing landscape in these countries and strategies for further deployment in key markets. The adoption of autonomous vehicles relies on global regulations that favor the testing and development of autonomous driving.
