Roadmap for Hawaii’s autonomous transportation future

Hawaii can claim to be leading the way in autonomous transportation in the USA but still has significant room to improve, according to a new report.

The report, Framework for Hawaii’s AV Future: Accessible, Automated, Connected, Electric and Shared, was produced by Ulupono Initiative and Mobilitye3 (Me3).

Kelley Coyner, founder and CEO of Me3, who was the report’s author, said, “Whether Hawaii is ready, automated vehicles and other disruptive technologies continue to proliferate. COVID-19 has highlighted opportunities to strengthen vital supply chains with automated and electric mobility from trucks to shuttles to e-cargo bikes.

“The chance is now to create an accessible, automated, connected, electric, and shared (A2CES) mobility future that promotes equity, the environment, and economic opportunity for all in Hawaii.”
