TEDx: How Will Autonomous Vehicles Transform Cities?
Autonomous vehicles (AVs) will have profound effects not only on how we live, move, and spend our time in cities, but also increasingly on urban form and development itself. This new technologies will change the ease of transportation, the role of transit, and the places we spend our time.
In this TEDx Talk—part of TEDxCollegePark—urban designer and professor Nico Larco, AIA, from the Urbanism Next Center at the University of Oregon discusses how AVs will have profound effects on cities including large shifts in land use, changes in land value, a reduction in the need for parking, a shift on where we choose to live, and challenges for urban density, the extent of sprawl, and the vitality of urban areas.
