Blueprint For Autonomous Urbanism, 2017

This is a Blueprint for Autonomous Urbanism. It was designed by National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO). It is dated 2017. Its medium is digital print.

To counter transportation’s history of dividing communities, polluting air, and causing traffic congestion, this street design manual envisions a future where cities benefit from new transportation technologies in the age of autonomous vehicles (AVs). The illustrated guide outlines best practices for cities to create safer 21st-century streets. The guidelines represent an opportunity for cities to reduce the 1.3 million yearly traffic deaths, repurpose streets when driving lanes or parking spaces are no longer needed, incorporate mass transit, and ensure equitable economic benefits for all.
