Automated Vehicle Index Q4 2017

With the “Automated Vehicle” index, fka and Roland Berger compare the competitive positions of the automotive industry's leading countries in the field of automated driving.

The development of technologies for automated driving and the definition of necessary frameworks are currently forming the preconditions for complex, highly or fully automated driving scenarios of tomorrow. At the same time, ever growing numbers of non-industry players are finding their way into this business segment, traditionally reserved for automakers and suppliers. The future position of an automotive nation in this field is dependent on the state of technological development and the corresponding research activities, as well as on the market size and the legislative situation.

The „Automated Vehicle“ index, jointly developed by fka and Roland Berger, enables a comparison of the relative competitive positions of the focused automotive nations based on an objective assessment of the activities of those countries in the two key areas market and industry.
