Top Autonomous Vehicle Technology Influencers

There is often a lot of noise on social media when it comes to autonomous vehicle technology. We’ve taken the time, so you don’t have to – to pull together a list of those accounts on Twitter and LinkedIn who we rely on for a wide range of news, opinions and perspectives. This list is not exhaustive, but provides the key go-to accounts you should be following.  The list is in order of the number of followers that each account currently has on Twitter and LinkedIn, not who we think is the best – you can be the judge of that.
