A new HNTB Corporation white paper discusses how transportation planners can prepare for the future impacts of connected and automated vehicles, citing the importance of scenario-based planning. The white paper, “How will emerging mobility technologies steer future planning?” is authored by Jim Barbaresso, HNTB’s intelligent transportation systems practice leader, and Greg Krueger, program director for emerging technologies in transportation.

“Driverless cars and trucks will change everything planners do – but when, how and to what degree remain tough questions to answer,” Barbaresso said. “Scenario-based planning allows planners to assess combinations of factors that can assess future travel, which can better prepare communities for the influx of transportation technologies.”
