Connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) are poised to reshape transportation and mobility by replacing humans as the driver and service provider. While the primary stated motivation for vehicle automation is to improve safety and convenience of road mobility, this transformation also provides a valuable opportunity to improve vehicle energy efficiency and reduce emissions in the transportation sector. Progress in vehicle efficiency and functionality, however, does not necessarily translate to… Expand
Energy and emissions implications of automated vehicles in the U.S. energy system.
TLDR
Model results suggest that increasing travel demands from automation may boost fuel use and petroleum-based fuel prices, potentially increasing the market penetration of alternative-fuel vehicles and dramatic efficiency improvements from automation could drive fuel prices lower, greatly reducing the competitiveness ofAlternative-fueled vehicles.
