Autonomous Vehicles

This paper explores the feasible aspects of AVs and discusses their potential impacts on the transportation system. It looks at the barriers to well-managed, large-scale AV market penetration and suggests federal-level policy recommendations for an intelligently planned transition as AVs become a growing share of our transportation system.
