The race to get self-driving cars on the road is speeding up and there's big prize money at stake for whoever crosses the line first. The autonomous vehicle market will grow from $54.23 billion in 2019 to $556.67 billion in 2026, according to Allied Market Research estimates.

Waymo took the lead in December 2018 when the Google subsidiary launched a self-driving robotaxi service in the Phoenix area, but a number of other companies are closing in behind, including in the UK, where the government expects to have fully autonomous vehicles on the road by 2021.
