About Societal Impacts

A large driving force for the adoption of autonomous technology is the impact AVs will have on society. From convenience to emission reductions, AVs will undoubtedly revolutionize the impact that transportation has on our day-to-day lives.

Mobility Impacts

One of the most important benefits of self-driving vehicles is that they will provide safe mobility to the elderly and the disabled, but also to people who are too young to drive. Fully automated vehicles (AVs) also facilitate personal comfort and independence while traveling safely.

Shared (Fully) Automated Vehicles

AVs have innate potential to encourage additional travel as compared to human-driven vehicles, both by those who currently drive privately owned vehicles and those who do not. This is due to the many added benefits that occur as a result of removing or limiting the driving task.
