TRL has today published a far-reaching paper exploring the timings of autonomous driving and when Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) will become a common sight on UK’s roads.
The Transport 2020 Report brings together the diverse community of TRL Academy Fellows to provide key insights into the future of mobility and what transportation will look like in 2020.
The comprehensive paper covers the full breadth of issues that need to be addressed as the UK enters a new era of mobility. The issues include self-driving cars, ultra-low emission vehicles, infrastructure, connectivity, data gathering and use, and the potential role of artificial intelligence.
While many companies and organisations are focused on individual challenges that future mobility will bring, this report places them into context and outlines the entire landscape of what the next generation of transport may look like.
For example, while there’s a great deal on what mobility may look like for current road users, there is less attention on what mobility means for older travellers and the benefits autonomous vehicles could bring them. The Transport 2020 report pulls together the facts and studies that looks at how the older generation could impact mobility, vehicle design and technology.
The TRL Academy report, ‘Transport 2020: Addressing future mobility needs’, has been possible thanks to the range of TRL’s expertise, other industry professionals and a breadth of high profile projects that are testing and understanding how future mobility will work.
