Planning for the Transition to Shared Autonomous Vehicles
Designing for the future of automated mobility has become a common and necessary practice, but what about the necessary planning to prepare our governments and our citizens for connected, automated, electric, and shared vehicles?
Workshop participants at the 2018 National Shared Mobility Summit worked through three scenarios on Chicago’s streets to understand the demand for automated travel relative to the full spectrum of mobility choices, street life, and land-use activities that our neighbors and constituents will need, seek, or demand in the near future.
Moderator Jason Schrieber, senior principal at Stantec Urban Places, led a discussion among the five facilitators, each of whom shared his or her work related to connected, automated, electric, and shared vehicles.
