There has been much discussion of autonomous vehicle (AV) technology and the potential benefits to our everyday transportation lives, but what about the impact of AVs on our infrastructure? What are the implications on the built environment, and energy? How will we prepare and what are the opportunities for innovation?
Our program on March 21, 2017 will explore how rapidly evolving technological advances in the transportation sector will impact mobility and energy consumption in urban centers. Specifically, the benefits of vehicle autonomy, vehicle electrification, sharing and scenarios where unintended consequences may bring new challenges.
