HOW WILL DRIVERLESS CARS SHAPE THE PHILADELPHIA OF TOMORROW?

Recent major advances in driverless technology mean automobiles and their infrastructures are likely to transform American cities in the coming century. What will Philadelphia look like in this future? How will roadways, sidewalks, intersections, signage, traffic signals, and the relationship between buildings, roadways, pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles change? We challenge university-level students to re-imagine the right of way occupied by intelligent automobiles and the associated impact on urban design.

First prize is $5,000 USD!

Pre-Registrants will receive the official competition challenge and rules via email on the day the competition launches (October 04, 2013).

Note: Entries from multi-disciplinary teams representing a variety of fields and stakeholders, including perhaps designers, architects, planners, public policy makers, economists, transportation planners, MBAs, or others are strongly encouraged.
