Adaptation of Autonomous Vehicles into Highways and Roads

9 pagesPublished: May 15, 2022


Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are considered as the one of main components of the future transportation system. By 2040, over 90% of the vehicles are expected to be autonomous vehicles in the U.S. Therefore, it is imperative that the infrastructure systems, including highways and roads, need to be updated accommodate AVs before they become prominent in the transportation system. The main benefits of AVs are easing congestion, shortening commutes, reducing fuel consumption and global warming, enhancing accessibility, the liberation of parking spaces for better uses, and improving public health and social equity. To provide the current state of adaptation of AVs into highways and roads, the objectives of this paper are to investigate the current legislation and to explore impacts from the implementation of AVs and consequence considerations. Since Michigan is the home to one permanent testing site for autonomous vehicles, Michigan was selected as a case study in this paper. By providing an overview of the current implementation of AVs in the U.S., this paper will bring a comprehensive understanding of the adaptation of AVs so far and provide insights into future directions for a better implementation.
