Global Atlas of AVs in Cities

We spent 2017 scouring the globe to understand how cities are preparing for AVs The cities in this Atlas represent the vanguard of urban governments that are hosting tests, developing their own autonomous vehicle (AV) pilots, making plans and policy, and monitoring developments in AV technologies, uses, and markets. We are continually adding cities to the Atlas as we learn about new AV initiatives. However, because our focus here is on helping cities learn from each other, this map only covers AV pilots and policymaking efforts where city, municipal, or metropolitan governments are playing a substantial role. We included cities where we found evidence that the city government is setting goals, mobilizing resources, and providing oversight and evaluation for AV efforts. That’s why some important efforts organized by industry and national and state/provincial governments are not shown. In rare instances where a city does not meet this standard yet, but possesses a globally significant portfolio of AV innovation assets, we include it.
