BCG has been working with the World Economic Forum and an extensive network of partners since 2013 to shape the future of urban mobility and make autonomous vehicles a reality. For the past three years, we have been collaborating to advance the implementation of AVs in an urban setting through the Urban Mobility Project. We launched the effort with an analysis of consumer acceptance and the city perspective. More recently, we have explored model mobility scenarios and launched a real-life pilot in Boston.
Autonomous vehicles will be an integral part of future urban transportation ecosystems. Boston’s test program offers important insights on planning, implementation, and policymaking.
Cities are where self-driving vehicles can fundamentally change—for the better—how people live, work, and get around. The question is, how big will the urban self-driving revolution be?
The first generation of autonomous vehicles is coming soon to a highway near you. Is the automotive industry ready for a revolution?
Widespread adoption of autonomous vehicles could benefit society in numerous ways. But first, stakeholders must collaborate to clear technical, legal, and regulatory roadblocks.
