Connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) offer potentially transformative and far-reaching impacts to the transportation system—and other associated, reliant fields. This may include impacts to safety, congestion, personal mobility, land use, socio-economic characteristics, and the economy. However, realized benefits will be directly tied to how well public agencies prepare for these emerging technologies. Ideally, agencies interested in implementing CAV technology should consider the following:
It is clear preparing for CAVs is a challenging task. LTAP has created the following list of curated resources to assist local agencies in preparing for CAV technology. The collection is not meant to be exhaustive, but to provide key resources to initially inform and assist local agencies in their own preparatory efforts. The list will be continually updated.
The main CAV-related efforts in Louisiana are also summarized and categorized by legislative, administrative, and research activities. This list will also be continually tracked and updated.
Items in bold are linked to the resources. List items marked with (***) and in green are noted as especially useful resources.
