This paper draws on design research exploring detailed scenarios for driverless cars as primary access to suburban rail stations in Melbourne. The findings question the extent to which walkable urbanism is likely to result in a driverless future.
The National Transport Commission is reviewing the 2017 'Guidelines for trials of automated vehicles in Australia' to ensure they continue to encourage a nationally consistent and safe approach to automated vehicle trials. This discussion paper has been released to gather public feedback.
This report explores autonomous (also called self-driving, driverless or robotic) vehicle benefits and costs, and implications for various planning issues.
This paper presents an overview of lane-level road network generation techniques for the lane-level maps of autonomous vehicles with on-board systems, including the representation and generation of lane-level road networks.
This paper sets out the New Zealand government’s vision for how drones can be better integrated into the current transport system to develop a thriving, innovative and safe sector.
This article aims to explore public transport futures, but it also aims to challenge and “derail” what current common thinking is on transport futures.
Shared, electric and automated mobility (SEAM) governance framework: prototype for North America and Europe
This White Paper aims to illuminate best practices in the development of shared, electric and automated mobility (SEAM) governance.
This paper provides an overview of recent legislative trends to legalise automated vehicles (AV) operations, and explores possible challenges the community pursuing AV deployment will have to address, particularly by focusing on the non-technological aspects.
Urban mobility options have substantially increased in recent years, enabled by the widespread availability of smart device software Apps, geo-positioning technology, and the ease of electronic financial transactions. These options are likely to be supplemented soon by the rapidly advancing development of autonomous vehicles.
A legal opinion by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) set the internet alight in February. The US road safety federal regulator informed Google that the artificial intelligence (AI) software it uses to control its self-driving cars could effectively be viewed as the...
