Summary:

Autonomous vehicles are already being tested in mixed traffic and it is anticipated that by 2020, Level 4 Autonomy will be reached, primarily for ride and shuttle services, and soon afterwards for every day "drivers." Autonomous vehicles-from cars to garbage trucks-will bring profound changes for cities, impacting traffic, driver and pedestrian safety, city revenues and fundamental city operations. In the early years, autonomous vehicles will share the road with traditional vehicles, adding further complexities. To ensure we shape the best possible future for people and cities, there are actions cities must contemplate and begin today to face the momentous changes autonomous vehicles in will bring in terms of safety, liability, emergency response, land use, infrastructure maintenance, revenue levels, data protection, data monetization, and citizen privacy. Issues in each of these areas will be discussed including recommended actions for cities.
