  • The UK government has announced a £40 million fund to kick-start the autonomous vehicle services in the country.
  • The funding is likely to generate 38,000 new skilled jobs over the next decade across UK.

The British government has unveiled a £40 million fund to boost commercial self-driving services in the country that could make travelling safer and more reliable. Called the ‘Commercialising Connected and Automated Mobility’ competition, the initiative will help harness the potential of self-driving technology and provide grants to help roll out commercial autonomous vehicles across the UK from 2025.

As per a statement from the government, the funding will unlock an industry that could be worth £42 billion and generate 38,000 new skilled jobs over the next decade across the country. It will also help bring together investors and companies to launch sustainable business models nationally and exported internationally.

Among the vehicles that could be deployed are self-driving buses, shuttles, delivery vans, and vehicles used to move luggage and people at airports. They could be available for lease, rent, or purchase later this year.

The vehicles will get the government's approval under the Automated Lane Keeping System (ALKS) Regulation and will have to pass stringent safety checks. It may be noted that the government continues to work on the legal framework to ensure that self-driving vehicles can safely ply roads.
