Impacts and Adoption of Connected Autonomous Vehicles in Tennessee

The objective of this proposed research is to develop an integrated framework to forecast adoption of connected autonomous vehicles (CAVs) and impacts of adoption on safety, transit, and non-motorized transportation modes. The research further includes (i) applying the developed framework to the State of Tennessee (TN) to determine how CAVs will revolutionize transportation across the state and (ii) developing and analyzing various public awareness strategies that can promote CAV adoption.The following are expected outcomes of this research project: • Develop quantifiable measures that provide new understanding of CAV adoption by individuals, and their collective behavior in a transportation system. • Determine strategic level travel choice (own or use shared CAVs) adoptions at individual agent level and further at city and county level. • Assess public awareness programs will link to individual perceptions, and impact CAV adoption. • Development of scenarios of CAV adoption to represent various likelihoods of future market share and its impact.
