COTA TRB Events 2018

By the end of 2017, the worldwide population reached 7.6 billion, heading to hit 1.1 billion vehicles by 2020. Urban mobility problems are rapidly turning into an urban mobility crisis. As cities become larger, traffic congestion and crashes, energy consumption, carbon emissions, and other forms of pollution are increasing, imposing huge costs on local and global economies and impacting citizens’ quality of life and the environment. To address these challenges, innovative tools and forward-looking strategies are required to ensure the sustainability, livability and resiliency of the multi-modal transportation systems. Among all the emerging strategies, connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) are one of the promising technologies bring positive impacts on the mobility, safety and reliability of our surface transportation network. While the long-term benefits of CAVs are genuinely exciting, the route to true connected automation in transportation will likely be long and full of uncertainty. The precise impact of CAVs on individuals, communities, industries, and workplaces is, as yet, unclear. The 21 st COTA Winter Symposium will discuss critical issues in technology deployment, research and education that promote a safe, sustainable, efficient, and equitable transportation system through emerging technologies and strategies such as connected automation. The Symposium is aimed to providing a forum for international transportation professionals to share their research results, project experiences, and lessons learned. Researchers, educators, practitioners, government officials are encouraged to participate in the Symposium.
