A far-reaching paper exploring the timings of autonomous
driving and when autonomous vehicles will become a common sight on UK’s roads
has been published by TRL
The report -‘Transport
2020: Addressing Future Mobility
Needs’ - 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
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, the 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
The report pulls together the facts and studies that looks at how the
older generation could impact mobility, vehicle design and technology.
