<P CLASS="MsoNormal"><EM>6:00 - 6:30PM - Drinks & Snacks<BR>Discussion begins at 6:30PM</EM></P>
<P CLASS="MsoNormal">Cities today are built for the car. Even though there are, in most cases, more pedestrians on urban streets, cars have been allocated a majority of space. While most cities have started to at least partially reverse that hierarchy with the creation of bike lanes & shared streets, we are a long way away from a pedestrians & cyclists first approach to planning. The introduction to CAVs is an opportunity to radically change the way we think of & plan the urban environment, if governments are prepared to regulate the deployment of CAVs in an efficient & sustainable way & planners & urban designers are willing to contribute their part to create streets & public spaces that are for all. This moderated panel made up of an autonomous technology expert, a policy maker, a researcher, & an urban planner will discuss how cities will be impacted & the role of architects & designers during this technology evolution.</P>
