Planning for connected and automated vehicles

Planning for connected and automated vehicles

"Connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technologies have the potential to change transportation on a global scale. These technologies could improve safety, significantly alter transportation costs, and change traffic patterns and congestion." This time is now to begin having these conversations about how CAVs may integrate into our cities and the impact they could have on land use.

Key findings

Energy consumption could increase by over 200% or it could decrease significantly based on policy implementation.

Parking benefits include changing parking spaces into drop-off and pick up zones and removing minimum parking requirements from communities.

CAVs could improve safety on streets as they interact with pedestrians but they could also provide much slower commute times for them based on the change in the flow of traffic.
