Emerging Technologies

Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV’s), also known as driverless cars utilize technological advancements to enable vehicles to take over some or all the driving responsibilities that a person has traditionally fulfilled. Driverless cars will impact the future – but how and when remain uncertain.

Other technologies will expand our transportation options, improve operations and expand the information at our fingertips. We need to anticipate possibilities and identify how the transportation system needs to adapt with technology.

The TPB has conducted a webinar series to raise awareness and understanding of critical issues related to CAV. The TPB has produced a white paper that also supports the development of the region’s planning, policy, and programming priorities related to CAVs. This paper identifies actions the TPB may take to further achievement of its goals and minimize the potential for adverse impacts as CAVs are deployed.
