What are the three revs?

Three revolutions in transportation — shared mobility, electrification and autonomous vehicles — will fundamentally change transportation around the world. Rigorous research and impartial policy analysis are urgently needed to understand the impacts of these transportation revolutions, and to guide industry investments and government decision-making.

Gordon Anderson speaks about Automated Vehicle Liability and Insurance at ITS Webinar

Considering these vehicles are already testing on public roads, it is likely that there will be crash victims in the near future.
