Automated vehicles and how they may affect urban form: A review of recent scenario studies

"This paper provides a review of scenarios on these issues to date. Although some scenario studies provide useful insights about urban growth and change, very few consider detailed impacts of AVs on urban form, such as the density and mix of functions, the layout of urban development and the accessibility of locations, including the distance to transit."

Key findings

The use of AVS could increase travel efficiencies and make room for more developments as there is a lesser need for parking.

Unused parking spaces may be used for increasing the attractiveness of an area with more green space.

AVs should be integrated as a connection to public transit not as an alternative.
