Environmental Impacts of Automated Vehicles

Status: In Progress

This white paper will focus on the environmental effects of automated vehicles. It will provide a framework to understand the dimensions of the environmental effects of automated vehicles, synthesize the best research available on this topic, and will highlight important research gaps. It will make clear the link between research findings and policy implications. The most seminal and relevant reports on the topic will be reviewed and, to the extent possible, the focus will be on peer-reviewed and/or publicly accessible analyses. Given that this is such a new research topic, the literature may be supplemented with expert interviews.
