Autonomous Vehicles

This report discusses the impacts of vehicle electrification, automation, and shared mobility on urban transportation systems. It offers an overview of the status and potential of these transportation revolutions and presents possible scenarios and costs associated with each. Findings suggest that a scenario with the three transportation revolutions would result in energy savings, low emissions, and reductions on the number of vehicles on roads.
