Transportation is at the heart of the planning function, and town planners, city managers, economic development officers, and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) are the logical extension of the transportation systems management and operations (TSMO) community at the local level. They should be integrally involved with strategic transportation planning and validation of their municipality’s transition to the AV economy. This is particularly true as we approach 2020 - when many planners are beginning to organize their Comprehensive Plans and need to understand what they need to do to prepare for smart mobility and the advent of connected, autonomous vehicles over the next decade.
Practical, inexpensive, and created just for planners, economic development officers, town managers, mayors and city council members, DNA’s one-day "Connected and Autonomous Vehicles 101" education and planning seminars explore the key elements of connected and autonomous vehicles - the evolution of transportation, the technologies involved, policy and infrastructure considerations - and provide municipal and community leaders with an opportunity to understand their options and to reach an early consensus on policy and infrastructure planning goals.
