Abstract

Autonomous vehicles (AV) have dramatic potential not only to reshape cities. This research surveys 602 US cities to investigate how they are preparing for urban autonomy. To conduct this evaluation, roughly 20 key indicators are evaluated. Based on the evaluation most cities in the United States do not have AV policies. Of these the majority have some sort of white paper or policy acknowledgement. Key themes are in management (of transit, systems, parking, curb, data, etc.) and design (primarily streets and electric vehicle infrastructure), but not on travel behavior or demand management. This offers an opportunity for planners, engineers, policy makers and innovators in the coming years.
