Driving Innovation: AV Highlights and Breakthroughs of the PAV project

By Katie Basham / Updated: 13 Jul 2023

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) have the potential to radically transform the spaces we travel through and to. While many European cities have already started experimenting with autonomous mobility, much of the current discussion revolves around the technology itself and its potential social and environmental impact. But if AVs aren't properly integrated into a city's spatial planning, chances are high that it won't be able to deliver on its promised potential. 

PAV (Planning for Autonomous Vehicles) is an Interreg North Sea Region (NSR)-funded project that will help cities develop sustainable spatial planning strategies that include AVs. Beyond working directly with the partner cities, PAV can help other local authorities integrate autonomous mobility by making the necessary knowledge and methodology freely and easily accessible.

The PAV project has now come to an end after three years of working toward future-proofing autonomous mobility in cities. The PAV partners reflect on their work over the years, their achievements in the five AV pilots and the powerful research that took place.
