Prototyping Future Smart Transportation:
Towards Designing Driverless Vehicle Behaviors, City Design, and Policies Simultaneously
Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) can potentially improve urban living by reducing accidents, increasing transportation accessibility and equity, and decreasing emissions. Realizing these promises requires innovations in AV driving behaviors, city plans and infrastructure, and traffic and transportation policies to join forces. However, the complex interdependencies among AV, city, and policy design issues can hinder their innovation. This project explores how designers can innovate AVs, city environments, and policies simultaneously and productively toward better AV cities. 
This project is supported by the NSF  (#2212431 and #2107111). Angel Hwang (HCI) and Hauke Sandhaus (HCI) were student leads. Example publications include this position paper at CHI'23.
