Synthesis of the Socioeconomic Impacts of Connected and Automated Vehicles and Shared Mobility

Vehicles that are increasingly connected, automated, and shared have the potential to change personal, freight, and public transportation profoundly. While the transition to widespread adoption of connected and automated vehicles and shared mobility (CAVSM) is underway in the United States (U.S.) and in the European Union (EU) Member States, uncertainty exists around the pace, scope, and impacts of the potential end states of the transition. The potential benefits to society are immense. On the other hand, the technologies will solve some problems but could also create new ones. This paper discusses the high level implications of CAVSM on four important socioeconomic issues: data privacy and access, safety and security, economics and workforce, and equity. Key points related to these four topics are presented.
