Planning for Autonomous Vehicles PAV

People Involved

Project Description

Autonomous Vehicles (AV), or self-driving vehicles, promise widely available, low-cost, clean, door-to-door transport for people and goods. Widespread use on Europe’s roads is anticipated by the 2030s and is expected to have numerous societal implications for equity, health, economy, and governance resulting in potential impacts on city development and design (from street to district- and regional development). Many cities plan to start experimenting with AV in Europe. However, integration of AV in spatial planning has yet to start. This is urgent as cities plan district (re)developments, transport infrastructure and related investments decades ahead. This project aims to stimulate the up-take of electric, shared AV by developing green transport and spatial planning strategies that incorporate AV.
