This project brings together city and business leaders to accelerate the implementation of autonomous and shared-vehicle fleets to address urban mobility challenges. Key 2018 objectives include:
- Develop a digital CityWeb tool, built on TopLink, to capture key mobility parameters of each city and offer city transportation leaders the opportunity to collaborate with their counterparts in business
- Launch a pilot in a new city based on best practices learned from collaboration with Boston and build a prototype of a City Mobility Platform to demonstrate how multiple mobility providers, including fleets and private-owned autonomous vehicles, can operate in an urban setting
- Conduct analysis and develop an Autonomous Vehicle Technology Radar platform that brings together key tech players in AV software, sensors (LIDAR, automotive radar) to integrate with project stakeholders
- Build a New Mobility Coalition of key stakeholders to develop policy recommendations, create a comprehensive, positive vision for new mobility and advance policy solutions at the city, state and national levels
The Forum's program on autonomous vehicles will now be based at the Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in San Francisco, though still part of Shaping the Future of Mobility System Initiative.
