Project Abstract:
This project is concerned with adapting land use and transportation infrastructure for automated driving. Autonomous vehicles will likely yield a transformation of urban form, its land use and mobility system. We propose to establish quantitative modeling frameworks to analyze these impacts and implications. The frameworks will provide a quantifiable understanding of the tradeoffs, and reveal the underlying mechanism and identify key parameters that could shape the future of mobility systems and urban land use. Moreover, the proposed modeling frameworks will aid planning agencies with infrastructure adaptation planning and optimize a roadmap for shaping highway infrastructure towards automated mobility.
