Sustainable Mobility

sustainable mobility

Purpose

Improve transportation sustainability, safety, and accessibility through enhanced understanding of the energy and environmental implications of emerging transportation systems and their interdependencies with other critical infrastructures.

  •   Provide the analysis towards improving mobility as an intermediate service and identify the ideal shared mobility by investigating the implications imposed by proximity and connectivity.
  •   Quantify the energy impact of connected and automated vehicles at the vehicle, corridor, regional, and national level for multiple scenarios and technologies.
  •   Integrate models of vehicle and fuel technologies with consumer preferences to understand the impact of individual and market behavior on future transportation systems, policies, and vice versa.
  •   Identify vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication and data analysis strategies that can increase traffic safety and reduce congestion.
  •   Characterize approaches that minimize intermodal transfer barriers for passengers and freight with traditional and emerging modes of transportations.
