In recent years, technology companies have demonstrated not just the capability of autonomous vehicles, but the actual feasibility of future production and rollout of this technology. Yet, most indications suggest that it may be several years, if not a decade before autonomous vehicles become mainstream in our roadway environment. What major hurdles remain? Are we as a society ready? This document provides a review of the current state of connectivity and security, the evolving vehicle and roadway landscape, regulatory hurdles, and convergence of autonomous vehicles with infrastructure and future urban planning. In the context of these developments, it is crucial that we keep an open mind, considering both long- and short-term priorities. To do so, education will be a critical component of creating a public that is ready to embrace these potentially transformative technologies. DOWNLOAD
