Driving the Market of Driverless Cars: the Market Design of Autonomous Vehicles under Congestion Externalities
January, 18th 2019 (12:00-13:30)
Room B - 1st floor

Federico Boffa (Free University of Bolzano)

joint with Alessandro Fedele and Alberto Iozzi

We analyze the market for autonomous vehicles (AVs). We show how different market structures and different rules for the available capacity utilization affect the internalization of congestion externality in a setting in which there is instant information on congestion and
vehicles are part of fleets, therefore displaying a non-atomistic behavior. We also show how taxation should be implemented in such a setting in order to restore efficiency.
