Shared Automated Vehicles in Austin

Presentation by drs. Kara Kockelman

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) and shared autonomous vehicles (SAVs) have the potential to significantly change society’s transportation systems and land-use patterns, thereby impacting the quality of life for urban dwellers. A shift to self-driven cars affects what people do in their vehicles, their values of travel time, road safety, traffic congestion, and the natural environment. Cities and other government agencies will have the opportunity to integrate SAV technologies systemically within roadway networks to further promote these concepts, as well as to provide low-cost transit options, further propagating the benefits.
