There are clear socio-economic benefits that connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) can bring to social groups that face significant mobility restrictions. SMMT commissioned Strategy&, PwC’s strategy consulting arm, to produce this report to explore these benefits.
This report examines how the vehicles of tomorrow will revolutionise mobility for different sectors of society, particularly young, older and disabled people, all of whom could benefit from this transport revolution. Although public and private transportation is changing, many people still face significant challenges in terms of access and mobility on a daily basis. This can hinder their education choices, employment prospects and their ability to access other essential services – freedoms so many of us take for granted.
