Smart Streets: Envisioning Autonomous Mobility through Active Spaces and Economic Design Practices in Fargo, North Dakota
More InformationShow full item record
Safety is the top priority and designing for all users, with special attention to the pedestrian will be addressed. Next, increasing mobility on NDSU’s downtown campus will start with a design for more flexible and affordable modes of transportation such as bikes and autonomous vehicles tied into a much larger system in the FM area. With the addition of new automated technologies re-balancing the right-of-way will challenge the norm. In doing this I will not expand the streets but relocate street spaces to be more active and sustainable using technology to manage the public realm in a more active way. Lastly, I will implement a real-time management system to make these proactive streets feasible. In hitting on these four major points the spatial benefit of autonomous urban campus planning will flourish into a real-life solution that we all can benefit from.
