Parking Planning and Designing for Autonomous Vehicles

Parking Planning and Designing for Autonomous Vehicles

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) will have an impact on the transportation industry in the years to come.  There has been much discussion about what these impacts may potentially be, including impacts on roadway networks. But what about parking? And in what way may this disruption affect parking and what should we do as transportation professionals to plan for it? This session will discuss two primary areas, planning and design. The planning section of the presentation will discuss what research has been conducted by notable and recognized international consulting firms, as well as academia, in the area of predicting how parking demand may be reduced as a result AVs. Based on this research, the presentation will discuss what triggers will cause the greatest impacts on parking demand related to AVs.

Designing for the future will also be discussed including the design strategies that should be considered when there is a need for infrastructure today. The strategies discussed will include the design considerations related to future adaptive reuse of parking facilities and infrastructure planning for the future.

Attendees will learn:

  • What impact AV’s may have on the need for parking based on academic research
  • When the impacts may occur and at what market penetration
  • How do we design for future parking infrastructure when the infrastructure is needed today
