Most of what has been written about the social implications of autonomous vehicles concerns military vehicles, particularly aerial vehicles [1]. By contrast, this paper addresses the effects that civilian urban land vehicles could have on energy consumption. When the military designs land vehicles, it assumes an unknown or hostile environment. If the infrastructure instead cooperates with the vehicles, and the routes are fully known, autonomy becomes much easier.
