Autonomous mobility has great potential for transforming mobility, especially towards greater sustainability. But contrary to what advocates of autonomous mobility are saying, its future is far from certain: several different scenarios could play out, both in terms of how they develop and their impacts on the transport system.Public authorities will have a key role to play in steering this technology towards the desirable scenarios and setting the conditions for the integration of autonomous
