In 2017, these 20 start-ups raised a funding of more than $1 billion, which is more than 100% increase compared to 2016. The total funding of all self-driving start-ups from both private and corporate investors has gone pas $5.5 billion as of March 2018.The digitization is also fuelling the prospects of autonomous on demand ride hailing taxis. It is worth mentioning that only few of the start-ups are generating revenue and some are yet to showcase a clear path to scale up and ultimately become profitable.

US is considered to be leading the way in terms of legislation for driverless vehicles. States in America including Nevada, Florida, California and Michigan have already passed laws concerning driverless cars. However, 15 states had bills on automated driving which have failed. The automotive and technology firms in US have invested somewhere in the $35 billion to ~$45 billion range in self-driving technology in recent years, mainly through acquisitions and partnerships

In Feb 2017, Nissan conducted on road autonomous vehicle testing in London, UK which set the tone for partial autonomous features introduction in two of its best –selling vehicles; Nissan Qashqai and leaf. Ford is expected to expand its on-road testing of autonomous cars to Europe in 2018. The self-driving cars wave has also spread to the East European countries like Latvia where it is also betting its place as a hub for autonomous car testing in Europe.
