The drive toward change: Use cases for automated vehicles

The drive toward change: Use cases for automated vehicles

Oregon Department of Transportation, May 31, 2018

Automated vehicles (AVs) are already being tested and could soon be deployed on public roads in Oregon. In November 2017, Waymo began a pilot project for a driverless taxi service in Phoenix, Arizona, and GM recently announced plans to deploy fleets of fully automated cars without steering wheels or pedals in 2019. The AV industry is rapidly transitioning from the testing phase to the deployment phase. This guide is intended to prepare the Oregon government and other stakeholders for the deployment of automated vehicles. It provides an overview of how automated vehicles could be used, when they will be available to the public, how they could change our transportation system, and what policy questions they raise.
