This report released in December 2019 by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy presents the outcomes that cities should strive for when incorporating autonomous vehicles (AVs) into their transportation systems and describes major challenges that may arise as AV deployment proceeds. The topics covered include desired outcomes such as low emission, efficiency, and space optimization, and the recommendations for transportation policies to achieve the outcomes. The report is useful for city planners, government officials, AV manufacturers, policy makers, and engineers.
