Arizona State University’s Consortium for Science, Policy & Outcomes and the Paris-based Missions Publiques are convening a series of forums around the world to bring public perspectives into ongoing discussions around automated vehicle (AV) development and regulation. GBNRTC will be co-hosting a public forum in Buffalo on August 3, 2019. The input from this forum will be shared with local, national and international transportation planners to help inform future policies and projects.

Each day-long forum brings together approximately 100 members of the general public. These individuals are non-experts with varying levels of familiarity with automated technologies, and different perspectives on how driverless mobility systems might affect their lives and communities. Forum participants are seated at tables with approximately 6-7 other participants and a trained facilitator. The facilitator guides the participants through 7 sessions, or rounds, of discussion. Each session focuses on a different topic related to driverless mobility.
