Exploring the Urban Effects of Autonomous Vehicles: A Pocket R&D Beta Project
The arrival of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) on our streets appears to be only a question of time. In IBI TH!NK’s first Pocket R&D project, Alex Mereu from IBI Group’s transportation planning group in Toronto, explores the potential gains and pains of this emerging technology, and offers recommendations for cities to leverage the opportunities this technology presents. Read the full report here.
We have produced an accompanying video, which you can view below and is live on IBI Group’s Youtube channel.

THiNK is IBI Group’s in-house research and development group. Unlike traditional R&D units however, TH!NK works as a decentralized knowledge network that leverages the intellectual capital of IBI employees across disciplines and geographies. TH!NK’s role is to connect people, enable innovation and share knowledge through initiatives, platforms and partnerships – both internally and externally. This includes TH!NK’s Pocket R&D program, a micro-research program conducted by our staff.
