Autonomous vehicles on the territory of the Rouen Normandy Metropolis: from a technological project to an urban project – Phase 2

The Rouen-Normandy Metropolis wishes to consider the experimentation of autonomous vehicles on its territory as an urban planing tool, in the service of its citizens. Indeed, the deployment of the autonomous vehicle service can induce real or perceived transformations of the public space necessary to accommodate the service: installation of stations, signage, road markings, elimination of parking, etc. The deployment of the autonomous vehicle service can also lead to the creation of a new public space. It may also be accompanied by transformations facilitating access to the service (reduction of pedestrian route cuts by repairing sidewalks, etc.). Finally, the deployment of the service may result in changes in the use of the roadway: sharing of the roadway, reduction in traffic speeds for traditional vehicles cohabiting with the autonomous vehicle, changes in pedestrian behaviour around stations, etc. It is therefore necessary to assess how these transformations contribute to changing the way in which users of the area look at the neighbourhood.

The evaluation was based on two methods: 

  • repeated sessions of observation and short on-site interviews with pedestrians at several months’ interval, 
  • a series of long interviews with actors involved in autonomous vehicle experiments, in order to better understand how operational constraints and planning interact in the construction of autonomous vehicle projects.
