Autonomous vehicles (AV)s are soon to be in the traffic mix at airports nationwide dropping-off and picking up passengers. While us "humans" drive through crowded roads and can find the smallest place by the curb to stop and drop-off and pick up pax, can an AV do it?
Do AVs need to have a specific amount of curb space before it pulls in and out?
Do the curb spaces need to communicate with the AVs to indicate spaces available?
Will AVs even be allowed to go to the curb for drop-off and pick-up or they go elsewhere?
How much additional space will be needed to accommodate the AVs for a free flowing operation? etc
