Estimating Changes in Parking Capacity and Urban Form from Vehicle Automation

The City of Pittsburgh and cities around the country have communicated a desire to convert a significant portion of their non-emergency vehicle fleet to electric vehicles, and needs to make decisions on where to charge and house a potential fleet of vehicles. At the same time, interest in privately-owned electric vehicles continues to grow. The decision of where to locate the charging infrastructure affects costs, availability and resiliency during an outage. The arrival of partially autonomous technology such as parking valet and other features enables another set of capabilities that the City should consider when planning new infrastructure. For this proposal, the research team will develop models that estimate the costs and benefits of locating electric vehicles in specific locations depending on specific levels of vehicle automation. The research team's work will have broad impacts in how cities plan for advanced mobility in the age of automation.
