There is great uncertainty about the transition from human to autonomous driving vehicles, as well as about the extent and direction of their potential impacts on the urban shape and design. Predictions and scenarios have been developed, that adopt a global perspective, but lack in contextualization to local organization of the transport sector. Under the EVA project (, aimed at optimizing regional infrastructures for the transition to electric and connected autonomous vehicles, we are developing predictions and future scenarios that are contextualised to the Ticino reality. How are autonomous vehicles perceived by the Ticino population? When will they diffuse and how will they be used? How will they impact on public transport and active mobility? We present preliminary findings from a survey targeting the Ticino population and a focus group with local practitioners and experts active in the field of mobility.
