Autonomous Vehicles and the American City
Tuesday, March 15
11:00AM - 12:00PM
Westin Austin Downtown
310 E 5th ST
The technology world is infatuated by the notion of self-driving cars: autonomous marvels that can get from point a to b without human interaction.
But one of the fascinating relationships that will unfold with this technology is the effects it will have on American cities. How will we live? How will our relationship with a city change for the better?
Topics to be explored range from potential benefits that self driving cars will have to the poor (as AVs are less cost per mile than transit) to the challenges for governance (less parking revenue, less taxes to keep up city services) as well as implications for urban planning and existing public transport.
