In this case study we focus on the latest technology and policy developments in the field of autonomous and driverless cars. Our engineers face a huge challenge in the step change required to create highly, and then fully, autonomous vehicles; this creates uncertainty about the timing of their availability. There are societal questions that need to be addressed before highly and fully automated cars are both accepted and legally able to be positioned on our roads; this will include having the right regulatory framework in place. The modernisation of our current car fleet will take a long time. Currently it is estimated to take 10 years to get a new technology on to the production line, with a further ten to fifteen years to get the majority of the UK fleet changed. But before our fleet changes, the impacts on risk and the provision of insurance products need to be addressed.

No-notice evacuations of metropolitan areas can place significant demands on transportation infrastructure. Connected vehicle CV technology, with real-time vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communications, can help emergency managers to develop efficient and cost-effective traffic management plans for such events. The objectives of this research were to evaluate the impacts of CVs on no-notice evacuations using a case study of a downtown metropolitan area. The model was built, calibrated, and validated for studying the performance of traffic during the evacuation. The researchers evaluated system performance with different CV penetration rates from 0 to 30 percent CVs and measured average speed, average delays, and total delays.
