The deployment of highly autonomous vehicles (HAVs) is expected to deliver substantial benefits: reduced traffic congestion, decreased emissions, lower-cost of mobility and safer travel. It is crucial for public officials to proactively plan for autonomous vehicles using a data-driven approach aimed at tackling specific urban area needs. Without smart planning, this technology could clog roads, increase pollution and further stratify mobility options. INRIX, the global leader in connected car services and transportation analytics, has identified two key findings derived from the hundreds of millions of data points collected about population movement, congestion and parking in urban areas across the U.S.
“Shared-use vehicles will be a highly effective deployment of autonomous vehicles, where shorter, intra-city trips can maximize occupancy and efficiency, which means safer, faster and more convenient travel for users,” said Avery Ash, autonomous vehicle market strategist at INRIX.
