Self-Driving Vehicles: Policy and Technology Considerations

Fully self-driving vehicles are a disruptive technology that will have widespread impacts on safety, mobility, land use, and the built environment. This technology presents the opportunity to reduce collisions, optimize fleets, improve mobility, and close the divide between those who have access and mobility and those who don’t. The technology also presents risks of increasing vehicle miles traveled, promoting longer car trips and urban sprawl, and further entrenching automobile-oriented design. How are cities planning for the introduction of self-driving vehicles on local streets? In this session, learn about technological advances, city regulations, and policies to align self-driving vehicles with shared mobility and Vision Zero goals.
