This session will discuss current trends, pose a series of questions about the possible impacts of a driverless transportation system, and consider alternative possible answers to those questions. This session will also look beyond the impacts of the driverless car to consider the implications of increased reliance on unmanned aerial systems (aka drones) to provide freight and delivery services in lieu of human drivers. Speakers will explore the potential implications for changes to travel behavior, housing choices, the built environment and urban growth patterns, social equity and economic sustainability. The session will also discuss the professional planner's role in visualizing, anticipating, and addressing impacts of these disruptive technologies and engage the audience to consider how they can act to ensure we advance our communities goals for livability and quality of life in the face of unprecedented and uncertain change.
