Impacts of Emerging Technologies on Cities
Advances in emerging technologies – such as autonomous vehicles (AV’s), E-commerce, and the sharing economy – are having profound effects not only on how we live, move, and spend our time in cities, but also on urban form and development itself. These new technologies are changing how people and goods move, and this has implications for the layout of cities and the places we spend our time. While the potential impacts will likely first be felt in large urban areas, they will not be confined to them. Significant disruption is expected in urban and suburban communities alike, changing how people young and old will move around their communities.
This disruption presents opportunities and challenges for new development. How will the demand for parking change? Should we plan for more pickup and drop-off zones? How much and what attributes will be needed for delivery and storage of groceries and goods? What do these changes mean for your work? Find out this and more from the experts at the University of Oregon’s Urbanism Next Center.
