Transportation Planning in the Context of Autonomous Mobility

.............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Overview

Technology is bringing out revolutions in society, the economy, and the way of life. Emerging or disruptive technologies, in form of connected and automated vehicles, smartphones, increased computation power, and big data (“the Internet of things”), are fundamentally changing access to information and services. Incorporating emerging technologies in the transport sector in the form of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), shared mobility and electric vehicles have the potential to provide efficient, convenient and sustainable solutions to this increasing trend of private mode share and limited public transport coverage.

 

In this context, this course seeks to provide an overview of emerging technologies in transportation in North America focusing mainly on: (i) Autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles and their driving capabilities, (ii) New technology enabled models of taxi services and public transit, (iii) Technology intrusions in urban transport, freight and urban goods movement trajectory paths; (iv) New forms of technology enabled shared use mobility; and (v) Advances in alternative fuel technologies and impact on infrastructure at international, national, state and metropolitan levels. The course introduces participants to key terms, concepts and issues associated with such technological innovations like CAVs, autonomous transit and provides a comprehensive concept based on the expected policy implications on the integration of emerging technologies with the major transportation modes. The course will discuss available approaches to model vehicle ownership, adoption and prioritization of transport modes with autonomous technology toolkit on board including a concise description of the state-of-the-art mathematical models of adoption of such transport modes, both at consumer and organization level. During the course, participants will have the opportunity to use open-source software and work on international case studies.
