Are We There Yet?
The Myths and Realities of Autonomous Vehicles
Shaping a future for self-driving vehicles
Autonomous vehicle (AV) technology represents a possible paradigm shift in our way of life. But complex challenges and obstacles impose a reality at odds with the utopian visions propounded by AV enthusiasts in the private and public sectors.
This volume in the Urban Agenda series examines the technological questions still surrounding autonomous vehicles and the uncertain societal and legislative impact of widespread AV adoption. Assessing both short- and long-term concerns, the authors probe how autonomous vehicles might change land use, energy consumption, mass transit, commuter habits, traffic safety, job markets, and the freight industry and supply chains. At the same time, the essays discuss opportunities for industry, researchers, and policymakers to assure the safety, efficiency, and mobility of the autonomous future.

"It is great to see an Illinois institution of higher learning provide thought leadership on connected, automated, shared, and electric mobility. This ever-evolving ecosystem is disrupting systems, policies, and behaviors that have been ingrained in our culture and are ripe for enhancement--especially when that enhancement means increased safety and increased efficiency."--Jerry Quandt, Executive Director, Illinois Autonomous Vehicles Association
