Anticipating a World of Shared Autonomous Vehicles: Roundtable with Dr. Kara Kockelman

automated_vehicles

Join YPT-Austin on Friday, September 22nd for their September Round Table to learn more about Shared Autonomous Vehicles! Attending this event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided FREE for paid YPT-Austin members and non-members can purchase lunch for $10.

Guest speaker is Dr. Kara Kockelman, UT Austin’s Dewitt Greer Professor in Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering. Dr. Kockelman will be presenting her latest research on Shared Autonomous Vehicles and their economic effects on several industries. Connected and automated vehicles are set to create benefits leading to up to $5,000 in crash savings, driving burden reductions, parking costs, and other expenses. However, VMT is likely to rise due to their longer-distance trips, their ability to travel empty, and their accessibility to a larger group of the population.

Shared Autonomous Vehicles (SAVs) will offer people access to such technologies at a relatively low cost, reducing total VMT and offering a more fuel-efficient solution. If SAVs are smaller, electric, and more fuel efficient, and dynamic ride-sharing is enabled and regularly used, emissions and energy demand may fall. This roundtable will present research relating to all these topics, to help transportation professionals and planners think about policies, technologies, and other tools to improve quality of life for all travelers. Join us to learn more!

When: Friday, September 22 @ 11:30 AM

Where: Center for Transportation Research (1616 Guadalulpe St, 4th floor, Suite 4.202)

Networking starts at 11:30 AM and presentations begin at noon. If you have any questions, please contact YPT-Austin at YPTAustin@gmail.com.
