Autonomous car sharing or "carmaggedon"

Automation of activities previously undertaken by humans is nothing new. City planning happens at a gradual pace, decisions made now influence outcomes 20 and 30 years from now. Thoughtful planning can provide beneficial outcomes for the wider community and enhance ‘liveability’. So the question arises, how and in what form should we be planning with respect to the adoption of autonomous vehicles within the next 30 years? The possible future scenarios are diverse, and have the potential to drastically change land use planning for our city. In this research we explore two possible scenarios. one that is dominated by private vehicle ownership and the other by the “sharing” economy, across a range of land uses. The results indicates their potential implications for land use planning are significant, particularly in allowing for the provision for car parking.
