Planning for a Connected and Autonomous Future


Published on

How do we prepare for the next 40 years? Do we need to worry about this now? What do we know about the timeline? We will explore what we know now and what we need to consider going forward. Presented at the 2017 D-STOP Symposium.

Planning for a Connected and Autonomous Future

  1. 1. Planning for a Connected and Autonomous Future The 2017 D-STOP Symposium Natalia Ruiz Juri, Ph.D. February, 2017
  2. 2. Planning & Models • Different types of models • Goal: Characterize & quantify the impacts of CAVs on traffic networks
  3. 3. Why modeling? Transportation systems are complex
  4. 4. Starting Point Intended Outcome Final Outcome
  5. 5. Looking at a single dimension of the problem may be misleading Good Very bad Speed
  6. 6. Transportation Planning Process • How many people want to travel? • Where are they going? (and when) • What mode will they use? • What routes will they follow? Traffic patterns & conditions
  7. 7. CAVs in the planning process: Trip Making Behavior • Number of trips – New travelers • Mode choice – Ride sourcing (?) • Destination choice • Life style choices – Residential location – Vehicle ownership: Adoption of CAVs
  8. 8. CAVs in the planning process: System Performance • More effective ITS • Headway reduction • No control at intersections • Transition? Dr. Peter Stone The University of Texas at Austin
  9. 9. CAVs in the planning process: Routing Behavior • Information availability and use • Path selection criteria • Routing paradigms
  10. 10. The Path to Modeling CAVs • Interdisciplinary research • Community engagement • Data Safety Pilot Data: Trip Origins Safety Pilot Data: Routes for selected origin-destination pair
