Social Impacts of Connected, Automated Vehicles: A Research Agenda

Tuesday 1:30 PM- 3:15 PM

Angel Aparicio, Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, presiding
Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on International Cooperation (A0010)

Research in the last years on connected, autonomous vehicles (CAV) has mostly covered the technological aspects of CAV development and deployment, as well as its direct and more obvious potential impacts on fields such as the environment, road safety, and road infrastructure. In spite of a wide consensus on the disruptive potential of CAV to transform cities, transportation systems and people’s mobility behavior and lifestyles, research on these topics remains in its infancy.

The session will gather together a panel of experienced researchers on the social dimensions of urban transport, and will invite them to identify and discuss the key topics that could be integrated in an international research agenda on the social impacts of CAV.
