How AV Could Shape Our Cities – Research from the Netherlands
Date: May 10, 2019
Time: 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm ET
Automated driving has become a hot topic of research in different fields of science. Despite the great advancements in the vehicle technology itself, researchers are now concerned in figuring out what will be the impacts of these vehicles in life as we know it. These impacts can be rather broad from traffic safety to the economy. In this lecture, Goncalo will focus on the research that is being done at TU Delft, a leading university in automated vehicles’ (AVs) impacts research, focusing on urban areas and how mobility, and even the city itself, can change with fully-automated vehicles. Goncalo Correia will be covering impacts on the value of travel time, traffic congestion, land use, among others. This is work in progress that requires the involvement of all researchers interested in the topic, thus, in that sense, the lecture is intended more to foster research questions and methods than on giving final answers, which are still a bit far away.
Kelly Clifton and Chris Monsere of the Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science will lead a discussion with Goncalo about various aspects of AVs and their impacts on the future transportation.
