4, 5 & 6 of February 2020

  • Day 1 > 4 FEB '20 10 am - 3.45 pm

  • Day 3 > 6 FEB '20 9.30 am - 2 pm
  • ABOUT THE COURSE

    Autonomous vehicles change the way we think about urban transportation, public transit, land use and urban design. While every city will experience change in the near future, some will be better prepared for it.

    In this 3-day course, you will think through multiple, interrelated causes and stages of change. Focus on achievable, near-term adjustments while minimizing reliance on uncertain, long-range technology projections.

    Discover ideas that permit a directed, gradual and immediate approach to preparing for coming changes in mobility technologies and their diffusion. Apply these ideas to specific problems in the city or region of your choice. Consider what needs to be done to prepare for ten percent of all passenger kilometers in a target jurisdiction to be provided by autonomous taxis or shuttles. Look at configuring and regulating sidewalks and curbs. Deepen your understanding of such important and interrelated issues as parking, road-use fees, bike lanes, rights of way, seniors’ mobility, pedestrian safety, delivery drones and much more. Enhance your planning outlook to address productivity and job opportunities in this vibrant new sector.

    WHAT WILL YOU LEARN

    • Understand the growing acceptance and impact of automated vehicles in cities and regions.
    • Consider four stages of planning: early, rising, plateau and mature.
    • Approach issues with an understanding of economic, environmental and social opportunities and risks.
    • Integrate private and public transit, with an eye on congestion, land use and other critical issues.
    • Learn how to create a custom plan to address deployment issues in any planning area.

    WHO IS IT FOR?

    This course is geared to anyone whose responsibilities require knowledge of AV related issues, processes and regulations – urban planners, educators, fleet managers, transit agency staff, economists, analysts, R&D managers and others.
