TSS is the Gold Sponsor at this ITE workshop themed around “Connected Vehicle Technologies & Automated Driving”, where Juan Argote will be giving a presentation titled “Modeling Connected and Autonomous Vehicles”.
The objectives of this seminar are to show the trends of the connected vehicles technologies and automated driving; innovative transportation improvement methodologies and analytic tools for our decision makers, engineers and planners; how these tools can be applied to transportation planning and engineering projects; and what impacts these technologies are likely to have on travel demands, transportation planning and traffic engineering.
Some benefits, such as independent mobility for affluent non-drivers, may begin in the 2020s or 2030s, but most impacts, including reduced traffic and parking congestion, independent mobility for low-income people and aging population (and therefore reduced need to subsidize transit), increased safety, energy conservation and pollution reductions, will only be significant when automated vehicles become common and affordable, probably in the 2040s, and some benefits may require prohibiting human-driven vehicles on certain roadways. Real applications from around the world, as well as from California, will be presented in this workshop.
This year, speakers will be representatives from international transportation technology companies, connected and automated vehicle industry, ITS industries, UC Berkeley PATH, and many others who will talk about the current exciting technology development status, on-line and time-dependent transportation models, land use models linked to the transportation models, traffic control systems, and the traffic data collection technologies. This is the first time that this workshop aims at the technology developments from many transportation data industries and automobile companies, and their implications to the ITE community.
