Urbanism Next Panel: Emerging Technologies and the Future of Street Design Workshop

Cities and regions across the country are beginning to think ahead to the arrival of self-driving vehicles and other emerging technologies on city streets. This provides an historic opportunity to reclaim streets from the dominance of the automobile and transform them into vibrant, safe activity corridors.

In this workshop, participants will explore the ways that emerging technologies could and/or should transform the ways in which streets look and function in the future. The workshop will start with a discussion of principles for street design and emerging technologies. Using real street examples in the Portland region, participants will then investigate how theses streets may need to change, and should change in response to new technologies. The work shop will be led by practitioners from the public and private sector who are currently grappling with these issues.

This panel is part of the 2018 Urbanism Next Conference
