Special Issue Call for Abstracts "Autonomous mobility transitions: socio-spatial dimensions and the role of urban planning and policy"

Special Issue of Cities, the International Journal of Urban Policy and Planning

Read full abstract call here: https://www.academia.edu/38683424/Special_Issue_Call_for_Abstracts_Autonomous_mobility_transitions_socio-spatial_dimensions_and_the_role_of_urban_planning_and_policy_

This special issue seeks to bring together a collection of critical perspectives on the social and spatial implications of the diffusion of autonomous vehicles in cities. In particular, the special issue will seek to publish contributions that stimulate debates and improve our understanding of how urban planning and policy can respond to this potentially disruptive technology as it intersects with cities. The contributions can be empirical, theoretical and methodological. Topics can include (but are not limited to):

  *            autonomous mobility and urban spatial structure
  *            affordability, equity and inclusivity implications of autonomous mobility
  *            accessibility implications of autonomous vehicles for motorized travel
  *           accessibility implications of autonomous driving for different age groups including children, young adults, people in old age, and for individuals with disabilities and the urban poor
  *            implications of autonomous driving for vulnerable road users, including cyclists and pedestrians
  *            implications of autonomous mobility for mass transit in cities
  *            possible travel behaviour changes around driverless vehicles
  *            governance of autonomous mobility transitions
  *            the nexus between autonomous mobility and public health
  *            gender dimensions of autonomous mobility
  *            infrastructure investment implications of autonomous vehicles
  *            implications of autonomous driving for existing built-environments and the design and development of new towns
  *            privacy and security concerns around autonomous vehicles·
  *          the nexus among autonomous vehicles, emerging mobility concepts (e.g. shared-mobility, mobility-as-a-service) and urban sustainability
  *            autonomous mobility transitions and employment in the city
  *            urban planning implications of automation in freight movement in the logistics sector.
