Autonomous Transportation

Ethical, Legal, and Social Impacts

Our transportation system will likely undergo major transformation in the coming decades as technology allows us to move people and freight in safer and more efficient ways. Autonomous vehicles will be a part of this future, and will have far-reaching societal and political impact that must be understood.

Interdisciplinary teams will be the key to assessing this shift in transportation norms, examining the economics, design, ethics, policies and legalities necessary to enable a more connected and mobile society.
