Autonomous vehicles (AVs) have the potential to transform transportation and land use to a level not seen since the mass production of the private automobile. Learn about the latest research on how AVs will change communities and explore how landscape architects can lead in designing for an AV future.

1. Learn about short and long-term projections for the deployment of autonomous vehicles and their impacts on the built environment over time. 2. Understand the “big-picture” implications of autonomous vehicles and related technological trends, including e-commerce and the sharing economy, for the planning and design professions. 3. Identify opportunities for landscape architects created by autonomous vehicles in areas such as street/ROW redesign, reclamation/redevelopment of land from parking, and integration of green infrastructure into the built environment. 4. Be prepared to apply concepts learned at different scales (site, corridor/district, city, and region) and geographic contexts (urban, suburban, and rural).
