Socio-Economic Impacts


Assessing socio-economic impacts and sustainability of automated driving provides valuable insights for drivers/users, fleet operators, transport authorities and road authorities making decisions about investments. To make well-reasoned decisions on future developments, a good understanding is needed of how the benefits for society, sustainability and transport will be reached with increased automation. Furthermore, numerical estimates of benefits need to be provided for the cost-benefit analyses. The session will focus on impact mechanisms, feasibility to assess and estimate impact for selected impact areas. The use of evaluation results for industry and policy perspectives will also be discussed.
