Although Europe is trailing behind the rest of the world when it comes to connected and autonomous vehicle technology, a number of UK-based companies are hoping to change that.

A massive £500 million has already been invested here by the automotive industry, technology companies and the UK government into R&D and testing of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) and Chancellor Phillip Hammond has said he expects to see autonomous vehicles on British roads by 2021.

With large-scale investments, comprehensive legislation and a number of test-centres across the country already in place, below is a list of some of the companies taking advantage of the UK’s global, mass-market potential for this technology.
