AV Planning

Start with a plan

Autonomous vehicle (AV) technology is new; when you don’t know how AVs will impact or influence your city, your business, your community, or your daily life, it can be hard to know where to start. The answer is almost always the same—start with a plan. Whether you’re developing a strategy for an entire community, planning for electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure, or considering a pilot or full deployment of AVs, Stantec GenerationAV™ brings a full suite of planning services to get you, your business, or your community ready for an autonomous future.

Our AV planning services cover everything from AV curiosity to full-on deployments. Whether developing strategic plans and mobility assessments or conducting design charrettes via Stantec’s Design Spark or performing capital and AV deployment planning, we can help you figure out your next step—or steps—on your journey to autonomy.

Stantec GenerationAV™ has a bold vision for what our collective AV future can look like—this idea drives us to help communities create solutions that improve the lives of individuals and communities.

Select planning services include:

  • AV deployment plans
  • AV readiness assessments
  • Future mobility strategies
  • Operations and maintenance impact assessment for EVs and AVs
  • EV strategies

Guiding the journey to autonomy

Extensive planning, outreach, and a thorough understanding of what to do and when are critical when implementing automated vehicles. Whether launching a pilot program or a large-scale deployment, there are necessary steps to success. The GenerationAV Deployment Playbook was designed to guide communities and facilities through this process—from exploring challenges and creating a vision, to evaluating and integrating with existing infrastructure, to monitoring a deployment. The technology is complex; adopting it doesn’t have to be. Read More

Are you ready?

Our Smart Mobility Readiness Assessment Tool helps communities evaluate their level of readiness or maturity to adopt smart mobility technologies. The tool evaluates several categories including diversity, equity, safety, and the environment; system efficiencies; travel demand management; data sharing and privacy; interoperability; and planning and governance. Every community has its own needs and challenges—we’re here to help you figure out where you are, where you want to be, and how to get there. Read More

Safety at every stage

Safety verification is fundamental to the successful and sustainable deployment and operation of AVs. Our Safety Verification process covers all aspects of deployment starting at the planning and deployment stages, continuing to management and operations through to the monitor and evaluate stages. Bringing together all considerations related to AV technology, vehicle, environment, and operations, our holistic process is designed to reduce safety risks and establish confidence in the technology and deployment.
