How CAVs could boost the UK economy


£28bn

SI has launched a new standards programme that will support the development of one of the most widely anticipated emerging technologies, connected and


autonomous vehicles (CAVs). A report published by the Transport Systems Catapult on behalf of the government’s Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) in 2017 predicted that by 2035 the global market for CAV technologies will be worth £907 billion, with the UK hoping to gain at least a £28 billion share of that* (see panel right). Through the CCAV, the UK government has


invested around £120million in over seventy trials and/or demonstrator projects** with the intention of establishing the UK as a centre


of excellence for the development of CAVs. BSI is one of over 200 partner organizations helping to make that ambition a reality. Nick Fleming, Head of Market


Development and CAV Lead, is one of the people responsible for putting BSI’s programme into action, “We are developing a set of standards that will help accelerate the adoption of the new technology but make sure it is done safely,” said Nick. New standards will support the


government’s aim of establishing the UK as a global centre of excellence for CAV testing and manufacture, capable of attracting developers from around the world to design, build and test autonomous vehicles and their technologies in the UK. BSI is working closely with Meridian (see above right), a

government and industry organization that is supporting the development of the UK’s testbed capabilities and infrastructure . Nick said, “Given the UK’s world-leading R&D in this space, there is an opportunity for the UK to demonstrate leadership in developing standards of good practice based on that expertise and to shape future international standards to support UK exporting and compatibility of our technology.” BSI’s technical committees also provide the link into the international standards community, working through standards organizations such as ISO to ensure UK input and leadership into the development of related standards worldwide. In the UK BSI has set up a CAV Standards


By establishing a leadership position


for the UK in CAV technologies could see the UK market reach at least £28bn by 2035 and possibly as much as £52bn.*

By 2035 the UK will have


over 27,000 jobs involved in the manufacture and assembly of CAVs, replacing an equivalent number of jobs in conventional motor vehicle manufacturing.*


An estimated 6,000 net


additional jobs will be created in the production of CAV technologies with a further 3,900 indirect jobs created in the supply chain.*


of the jobs related to CAV technology


production are estimated to be highly-skilled professional and technical roles in software-related industries.*
