How can cities use driverless technology to shape their future mobility?

In the UK and the Republic of Ireland, cities are grappling with congestion, overcrowded transport, poor air quality, and the need to drive greater prosperity and improve the citizen experience. In these regions, exclusively electric Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) – often as part of a broader Mobility as a Service solution - present a huge opportunity for urban transformation, if harnessed in the right way.

Shaping future mobility with driverless technology

Urban mobility is evolving as digital transformation drives changes in business models, as well as citizen tastes and expectations

As highlighted in our recent global report ‘Citizens in Motion’ CAV will have a disruptive influence on mobility in all our cities and city regions. The form of this disruption - from business and service models to the vehicle itself - can be shaped at local and national levels, meaning that cities and city regions have much to gain from positive and early engagement.  

Who’s driving the UK and Ireland’s future? 


All future investment in transport infrastructure will be affected by the CAV revolution. From engaging local people and forming regulatory policy, through to testing, licensing and implementation, cities have a lead part to play in delivering the best possible version of CAV to meet the differing needs of all citizens.

Key to this is the way in which cities are positively aligning infrastructure investment decisions with a CAV-enabled future. However, in balancing individual initiatives at the level of the citizen with collective action, what steps should cities take if they are to succeed in realising a driverless future that is right for them?
