New edited volume: Policy implications of autonomous vehicles

Our new edited volume “Policy Implications of Autonomous Vehicles”, Volume Five in the Advances in Transport Policy and Planning series systematically reviews policy relevant implications of AVs and the associated possible policy responses, and discusses future avenues for policy making and research. It comprises 13 chapters discussing: (a) short-term implications of AVs for traffic flow, human-automated bus systems interaction, cyber-security and safety, cybersecurity certification and auditing, non-commuting journeys; (b) long-term implications of AVs for carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and energy, health and well-being, data protection, ethics, governance; (c) implications of AVs for the maritime industry and urban deliveries; and (d) overall synthesis and conclusions.

Many thanks for the great collaboration to my co-editors (Dr. Nikolas Thomopoulos and Professor Bert van Wee) and the authors of the chapters listed below, who contributed their expertise within each field making this book a valuable resource for advanced students, practitioners, researchers, policy makers and technology developers.

The book has been initiated within the Action CA16222 of the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) entitled “Wider Impacts and Scenario Evaluation of Autonomous and Connected Transport” (WISE-ACT).
