Overview

According to the American Planning Association, the time for planning for self-driving vehicles is now! Fortunately for Wisconsin, UW-Madison and a team of public and private entities across the state have been integrally involved in autonomous and connected vehicles for the past three years. This program provides a background on this technology and its intersection with urban
and regional planning. The program outlines potential future scenarios that impact planning efforts, reviews the current and future state of automated and connected vehicle technology, and highlights the current work underway in Wisconsin and at the Wisconsin Automated Vehicle Proving Grounds. The program concludes with a discussion of the way planning can shape automated and connected vehicles and vice versa.
