Societal Consequences of Automated Vehicles – Norwegian Scenarios

Samfunnsmessige konsekvenser av automatiserte kjøretøy - norske scenarioer

Automated vehicles, and the literature thereof, are in rapid growth. Improved mobility and traffic safety and reduced environmental burden are expected. However, automated vehicles might increase driving remarkably, inferring more congestion, urban sprawl, reduced public transport and less active mobility. Societal impacts depend on ownership and usage of the automated vehicles, and the policies to restrict or support the various private, shared or public schemes. This is not determined by technology. To exploit the possibilities and cope with the challenges an active and differentiated policymaking will be necessary. Private automated cars will be best suited in rural areas, whereas automated buses, trams and trains are best suited along the main public transport grid. The question is where and for whom ridesharing with small automated minibuses run by the public transport companies will be the most appropriate. These, already familiar, schemes will probably be the point of departure for the further development in the Norwegian context.
