Abstract

Automated driving has the potential to fundamentally change our everyday mobility. Based on a conceivable development path, the effects that are foreseeable from today’s perspective of cities and regions are described. Automated vehicles offer numerous opportunities such as efficiency gains, new mobility options, and increased safety. Upcoming challenges are potential traffic growth, necessary adjustments in legislation, and the development of an adequate data infrastructure. The overall benefit of automated driving strongly depends on political influence.
