The emerging Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) revolution opens a new frontier of disruption in transport, infrastructure and urban living. For our cities, this presents a huge opportunity to radically transform urban mobility.
While all cities share common fundamental attributes, all are ultimately different, and a ‘one size fits all’ approach to connected and autonomous vehicles is unlikely to deliver the full extent of the opportunity. For cities that proactively shape CAV to meet their needs and ambitions, it offers a colossal opportunity to enhance mobility and transform city transportation. For those that do not, it threatens to disrupt the status quo in a way that is inconsistent with a city’s aims and the interests of its citizens and visitors.
The proliferation of connected and autonomous vehicles is inevitable, but future cities everywhere have the opportunity to be on the front-foot. There is a chance to shape behaviours and respond positively so that CAV best meet a city’s mobility objectives and enhance the citizen-experience.
