In the future of transportation energy consumption, autonomous vehicles represent a giant question mark. The technology has the potential to change vehicle design, energy efficiency, vehicle ownership, travel behavior, and the very fabric of our cities. Can fleet control, car sharing, platooning, and algorithms be used to create a more efficient transportation system? Will autonomy spur urban sprawl? Should we care about energy consumption if all cars are electric? Join us for a conversation on the impacts of autonomy on transportation, energy use, and urban layouts, bringing together an autonomous vehicle CEO, a transportation expert and urban planner, and thought leaders in autonomy and its impacts on energy efficiency.
