This report envisions the impact of automated vehicle technology on Florida’s communities and assesses how AV technology might impact the built environment in the coming decades. It includes findings that AVs will require narrower rights-of-way and travel lanes; influence the location, form, and amount of parking; impact the mobility of bicyclists and pedestrians; declutter urban environments through reduced signalization and signage; and provide opportunities for redevelopment on now unnecessary parking lots and excess rights-of-way.
