Systems and methods are provided for coordinating autonomous vehicle pickup of a user exiting a facility. In an exemplary embodiment, a smart space manager receives, from a user device, information identifying an autonomous vehicle associated with a user of the user device. The smart space manager also receives an indication that the user intends to exit the facility. For each potential exit from the facility, the smart space manager determines (i) a projected user arrival time at the respective exit and (ii) a projected vehicle arrival time at the respective exit. From among the potential exits, the smart space manager selects the exit having the earliest departure time, where the departure time is the later of the projected vehicle arrival time and the projected user arrival time for an exit. The smart space manger directs the vehicle and the user to the selected exit.
