Is Denmark ready for driverless cars?

Karen Hjulmand | p1 Orientering | 12 october 2017

Listen to the P1 Orientering interview here
In a current events programme on national radio, PA Transportation expert Frank Madsen discusses PA Consulting Group´s Nordic survey on driverless vehicles. Both politicians and the transport sector are eager to see driverless vehicles on Danish roads soon, with recent regulation opening up for testing driverless vehicles such as driverless buses.  

But while the technology behind the driverless cars is only six years away, the ecosystem needed, such as infrastructure, regulation and insurance, is far from ready, according to the 75 respondents in PA’s survey. Those surveyed are all currently involved in driverless projects taking place across the Nordic region. 

Frank says: “We see a need for a more coherent strategy and vision for mobility that spans across all sectors of transportation. One aspect is the infrastructure and making sure the road net is fit for driverless vehicles, but we must also clarify who will own the vehicle fleets in a driverless society and understand how we ensure a seamless user experience from end to end.”

Frank goes on to point out how driverless vehicles are an integral part of the overall digitalisation of the transportation sector. The data needed for the vehicles to run smoothly and safely must be accurate and available. 

“At the heart of this development towards driverless vehicles is mobility as a service, a concept expressing how we will soon move away from owning our own vehicles to renting them where and when we need them. We need to develop business models that seamlessly deliver this, combining various types of transportation when and where we need it," Frank concludes.
