  • How to approach the impending widespread adoption of CAVs
  • How to address the physical and economic challenges of CAVs
  • How to prepare your community for the impacts of CAV adoption


There's a real need for planners, designers, and policy makers to think about and anticipate the potential impacts of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) within the cities where we live and work. This session will provide a space to think interdisciplinary, collaboratively, and innovatively about the fundamental policy, social, design, and technology issues that still lie ahead of us and need to be solved. The focus of this session is to reimagine how our streets may be used in a future of CAVs, taking into account different user groups and various types of CAVs that may exist in the future. How can urban streets be reclaimed in an era of connected and autonomous vehicles? Debate that question as you consider designing for a public realm that improves the quality of life in our cities by realizing the opportunities of CAVs and alleviating the risks they might pose.
