Accelerating automated mobility

There are many paths on the road to automation. Stantec GenerationAV™ aims to safely accelerate that journey. Our experience with automated mobility has given us a deep perspective on what lies ahead for the industry, and what that future means for clients and communities everywhere.

Implementing a new technology comes with inherent risk and there isn’t always a clear path to efficiently managing that risk. One size does not fit all when it comes to deploying autonomous vehicles (AVs). Deploying automated systems is a process filled with hurdles, barriers, and complexity that needs a clearly defined program management process so we can all realize the potential benefits of AVs.

These challenges and risks are the reason we created our AV Deployment Playbook—to weave lessons learned and tangible project experience into a robust methodology for the safe and efficient deployment of AVs.

Guided by this methodology and bolstered by our best-in-class industry partners, we help clients deploy AVs safely, for the good of their communities.
