Speeding Toward a Future With Self-Driving Cars
Not long ago, autonomous vehicles could only be found in science fiction movies, but recently they’ve made the move from the big screen to research facilities and, for some, public roadway exploration.
Beyond altering the driving experience as we know it, autonomous vehicles will not only drastically alter the driving experience but also transform many aspects of our world, including urban planning and current revenue streams for municipalities that rely on parking fees.
“Automation changes the way you look at future investments,” says Danny Rotert, a strategic consultant in the Transportation Group at Burns & McDonnell. “We need to consider how infrastructure and community priorities will change as this technology is introduced.”
