The socio-economic impacts of AVs
Project partner POLIS's Laura Babío Somoza wrote an insightful report on the long term socioeconomic impacts of autonomous vehicles.
The key goal of the report is to develop green transport and spatial planning strategies that incorporate autonomous vehicles. Local and regional authorities need to gain a deeper understanding of the potential paths of development, potential impacts, and chains of causality.
Within the project timeline, PAV will produce two reports that will help to gain such a deeper understanding. By linking the insights of these reports with the identified local challenges, opportunities and priorities of the local, regional and transport authorities, PAV partners will be able to develop strategies to steer the future arrival of AV efficiently and in line with local policy goals.
This report is the first of a series of 2 and it examines various potential socioeconomic impacts surrounding the deployment of automated and autonomous vehicles in road transport, as well as factors that will influence such impacts.”
