World cities have developed, hard-to-replace infrastructure and conservative planning policies, so where will we see the first town truly to prove the concept of novel and disruptive infrastructures? Will policymakers in developed economies want to deploy disruptive technologies to try to revitalise and re-establish declining communities?  Will developing economies incentivise companies to set up infrastructure where planning policies make it easier to do so?  Or will the technologies...

With the emergence of autonomous vehicles, will we see the disappearance of "boy racers" and "petrol heads" or will popularity for track days, where we can be let lose to drive as fast as we like, increase?

What are the ethical and moral decisions which have been programmed into autonomous vehicles to assist them to make the "right" choices?  If there is an inevitable crash what choice will the vehicle make, who or what (in the case of property damage) will it save from damage injury or even death.  Do you believe that the insurance market may influence this (or already are) in order to reduce their payouts?

.Driving between Glasgow and Cambridge recently it occurred to me that service stations might change if  drivers don't need to stop for rest. Might they improve their offerings if the electric autonomous vehicles need 45 minutes to recharge ? Perhaps better restaurant offerings or places for business meetings... Although battery technology mayhave to improve  or how will service stations ever having sufficient charging points.

What will the model of ownership and use of autonomous vehicles for daily travel look like in the UK? Will we maintain something similar to the current model of private individual ownership of smaller vehicles with public and company ownership of larger vehicles or move away from individual ownership to fleets of government, local authority or transport company vehicles in a much greater shared journey model.

Humans have historically feared new technology, particularly where it appears to think for itself. How will makers, suppliers and owners of autonomous vehicles win the hearts and minds of the end user.

With fewer vehicles in city centres, and assuming shared autonomous vehicles will be constantly on the move, the demand for car parking provision might reduce quite drastically.  In the urban landscape of the future, how are car parks most likely to be repurposed?
