As we're moving more and more towards an all AV world, [an] autonomous vehicle world, we need to think about how we design our infrastructure. Typically, infrastructure has a life span, 30-50 years, so you need to plan the next infrastructure and how can you do it and how autonomous vehicles are going to change infrastructure.
