A report and total-cost-of-ownership (TCO) model named Driving Automation has been released today by ACT Research. The report covers commercial autonomous vehicles within North America and features relevant market information, analyzes autonomous deployment models and delivers a technology adoption rate forecast over a 20-year horizon.
The deliverables in the report are currently available for purchase by the public and include a written analysis document, Excel TCO models with base, fast, and slow adoption scenarios, and an executive summary PowerPoint document.
“The work, executed as a multi-client study with more than a dozen industry leaders, covers six key areas of autonomous transportation, including a market overview, total available market (TAM), regulations and infrastructure considerations, vehicle TCO (including utilization, fuel economy, maintenance, labor and driver impact, and safety considerations), autonomous models’ impact, and ACT’s autonomous forecasts,” said Ann Rundle, vice president of electrification and autonomy, ACT Research.
“Our team dedicated nine months of intensive collaborative and independent research,” commented ACT’s Research Analyst, Lydia Vieth. “Our objective is to provide a one-stop resource combining first-hand industry knowledge of autonomous commercial vehicle market leaders, regulators and fleets with ACT’s expertise in analysis and forecasting to provide a first-of-its-kind business tool.”
ACT Research publishes commercial vehicle truck, trailer and bus industry data, market analysis and forecasts for both the North American and Chinese markets.
