Drawing upon our experience working on the Knight AV Initiative, we are pleased to share a new white paper designed to provide a foundation for public sector agencies to approach autonomous vehicle deployment and policy with a focus on equity. This paper outlines ways that public agencies can identify community needs and shape deployment to ensure that AVs will be accessible for all.

In this paper we outline our current understanding of community engagement best practices, important AV-related equity topics, different models of governance, and the tools and levers local governments have to shape deployment. The Knight AV Initiative it a a three-year collaborative effort between the Urbanism Next Center at the University of Oregon, Cityfi, Detroit, Pittsburgh, San Jose, and Miami-Dade County to pilot and learn about automated mobility technologies today to shape the future of deployment tomorrow. This work is generously supported by the Knight Foundation.
