This is a great webinar focus on the topic of autonomous vehicles. This webinar is being shared from the smart growth.org website.
Optimists predict that autonomous vehicles will be sufficiently reliable, affordable and common to displace most human driving, providing huge savings and benefits by 2030. However, there are good reasons to be skeptical.
Todd Litman of the Victoria Transport Policy Institute investigates how quickly self-driving vehicles are likely to develop and be deployed; their likely benefits and costs; and how they are likely to affect travel demands and planning decisions such as optimal road, parking and public transit supply.
