Toolkit on Self-Driving vehicles

The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) has created a toolkit to support industry messaging as more advanced vehicle technology comes to market. It provides messaging, guidance and materials that will help organisations and their customers understand how different autonomous features function and how they impact the driver experience.

Automated Lane Keeping Systems (ALKS) could be available on vehicles in the UK later this year, marking a key step forward in self-driving technology. The toolkit, published by the Automated Vehicle Driver Responsibility in Vehicle Education Group (AV-DRIVE), has been created with input from representatives from the insurance industry, advertising sector, law enforcement, road safety organisations and other government departments.

The BVRLA has been involved in these discussions to represent member views.

The toolkit contains a glossary of key terms and example visual aids the explain how self-driving technology works. There is also an explainer on how insurance policies may be adapted.
