ACT Research seeks AV study participants

Feb. 16, 2022
From OEMs and suppliers, autonomous technology partners and fleets, regulatory bodies, and more, this study will rely on the insights of those in the industry to support ACT’s autonomous vehicle analysis.

ACT Research is launching a study to learn more about the adoption of autonomous vehicles and is looking for participants. ACT aims to forecast the adoption potential and segment-level use cases of autonomous commercial vehicles and the potential ramifications on local and over-the-road transportation.

In 2018, ACT developed a bottom-up total-cost-of-ownership (TCO) model to forecast battery- and fuel-cell electric vehicles. Since then, ACT has been considered the go-to source for segment-level TCO adoption rate forecasting, executing two editions of a North American-centric, and a global battery- and fuel-cell electric forecast for OEMs, suppliers, new entrants, infrastructure developers, fleets, capital investment firms, and others.

Utilizing this methodology, ACT will perform independent research over the next eight months, in conjunction with input from study participants, to develop a comprehensive look at the adoption of autonomous vehicles for on-highway transportation.

“Autonomous technology is quickly moving from simulation work and prototype field testing towards real availability for implementation in commercial vehicles,” Ann Rundle, VP of electrification and autonomy at ACT Research, said. “ACT Research knows this industry and has a deep understanding of cost drivers and economic ROI considerations for fleet operators. Working with our study participants, we will be able to deliver a solid, credible, financially-driven analysis and forecast for autonomous vehicle adoption in commercial vehicles.”

From OEMs and suppliers to autonomous technology partners and fleets, to regulatory bodies and other industry stakeholders, this study will rely on the insights of the market constituents to support ACT’s delivery of an economic analysis of the adoption of autonomous technology in commercial vehicles and transportation.
