Amy Korte was interviewed by the Boston Globe about how autonomous cars and ride sharing will impact facilities in the future. Her recent research focuses on the future design of parking structures; as the automated technology becomes more of a reality for travelers, it’s critical to design parking facilities that can transform over time. In early years, parking layouts can be altered to allow for denser parking— an available option with computer-aided parking and autonomous vehicles— to future phases that adapt the building to new uses, such as office or retail. The story appeared in the February 23rd, 2016 edition of the Boston Globe.
