5. Autonomous Vehicles Presentation
New vehicle technologies are rapidly advancing and the time of driverless cars is quickly approaching. For model year 2018, there are nine types of sedans with driver assistance features allowing hands-free highway driving in certain scenarios; three of them also offer hands-free driving on city streets. GM recently announced its plans to have fleets of selfdriving cars in major cities in 2019, and many cities are working with technology companies and vehicle manufacturers to conduct testing and pilot projects of driverless vehicles on their streets. Local laws, policies, ordinances, and ideas must start to account for these transformative transportation technologies. INCOG is working with City of Tulsa Mayor Bynumís newly-created Urban Mobility Task Force to work through the steps necessary to ensure Tulsa is ready for the many changes coming soon to our transportation systems. Staff will brief the committee on the state of driverless technologies, their possible implications, and first steps for policy makers.
