Vibrant Communities Speaker Series – Automated Vehicle Technology and City Building, May 30 – Watch on Facebook
For the last two years the City of Edmonton has been intentionally studying automated vehicle technology and has been at the centre of the local, provincial and federal dialogue around responsibly advancing this technology. In fall 2015, the City commissioned a study on the potential transportation and land use impacts of automated vehicles in Edmonton. This presentation will cover the highlights and lessons learned from the study, and the City’s approach to preparing and planning for this disruptive technology moving forward. With the City of Edmonton ultimately striving to achieve sustainable mobility for all citizens, it is important to plan and leverage automated vehicle technology to this end, rather than react to the technology as it becomes available.
