Leading global design firm Stantec’s autonomous vehicle team, GenerationAV™, has been selected to create a playbook from the deployment process of the largest electric autonomous vehicle (AV) fleet in the US. Launched in Golden yesterday by the Colorado Smart Cities Alliance, the AvCo Program is designed to improve public transportation using low-speed, connected autonomous and electric shuttles. Plans include scaling the fleet program to two other Colorado cities in the near future. AvCo will form the basis of an education program called City Forward, developed by Stantec, which will serve as a roadmap to accelerate the adoption of AV programs in other cities across the world.
