This New Florida Town is Ready for Autonomous Cars

Google-Self Driving Cars

Developers of Babcock Ranch, just east of Fort Myers expect their town’s public transportation to be run by self driving cars in the near future. Using an app similar to Uber, Babcock Ranch will use an app to connect the town with other communities through a self driving car system.

“We’re really looking closely at parking, the size of the streets, what ultimately that’s going to look like when you have driverless cars within the community,” says Syd Kitson, chairman and CEO of Kitson and Partners, the developer of the new town. “It will change the design parameters. As these things become more commonplace, people may eventually turn to just one car because they know they can use an autonomous vehicle.”

Developers plan on working with external companies to build out a self driving car system as Florida is one of the most autonomous-friendly states in the country.
