Transportation Planning Implications of Automated Vehicles on Texas Highways

This research explores the transportation planning implications of automated and connected vehicles (AV/CV) on Texas highways and includes an in-depth study of how travel modeling can assist in planning for AV/CV. The research team (hereafter referred to as the "Performing Agency"), shall assess how these potentially transformative technologies can be included in transportation planning to assist in the decision making process. The Performing Agency shall also define AV/CV implementation along various scales of vehicle technology advancement, public acceptance and adoption, and infrastructure implementation.
