What if cars could drive themselves?
Not just a few cars. Not just these Google cars in Mountain View, or these automated trucks at Australian mines – but every car in every city around the world?
How would our cities change?
The idea of a driverless future has existed in science fiction for decades. Movies like Demolition Man, Minority Report and I, Robot imagined a world where humans sit back and let machines do the driving.
And while we might not have robotic servants or psychic detectives, in many ways these futuristic cities line up with many experts' predictions of what will happen when self-driving cars become widespread. -
First, let's look at the roads. Nearly half of modern roadways are taken up with parking space on either side – but if every city had its own fleet of self-driving cars, constantly circulating and transporting passengers, we wouldn't need nearly so much room to park. -
Self-driving cars can also safely travel more closely together, so motorways could be half as wide as they currently are. Roads and parking space – which currently make up as much as half the land area of a city – will shrink. -
All this free space could completely change how people use urban space. Multi-storey car parks could be turned into cheap office space or amenities, boosting local businesses. And with parking no longer an issue, businesses could thrive in places where it previously wouldn't have been possible. -
We may not need road signs or traffic lights either. Busy junctions could have super-hubs that communicate wirelessly with all the vehicles in their area, and cars could read information from special road markings. -
Cities around the world are already gearing up for a self-driving future. Driverless taxis will be trialled in Singapore in late 2016. The next year will see Volvo launch its DriveMe programme in Gothenburg, Sweden. Meanwhile, in Greenwich, the GATEway project will put self-driving shuttle buses on London's streets for the first time. -
The age of driverless cars could see people truly reclaim the streets – and deliver safer, cleaner, less congested cities for everyone. -
