What are the different levels of vehicle automation? With all the talk about autonomous vehicles, why aren't they here yet? Will they actually make cities safer? In this webinar we'll discuss the potential problems with autonomous vehicles and ways to counteract them through the policies and strategies needed to support this growing technology. This webinar is presented as a partnership between the UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies and the APA Transportation Planning Division.
