What are the Big Questions in Mobility Technologies & Services?
University of Toronto faculty are invited to join us for a kick-off session exploring our common interests in new mobility technologies and services, hosted on Zoom.
Mobility Technologies & Services
It is well known that “the costs of congestion” threaten thriving urban regions and cities. Congestion is a symptom of a thriving urban region but also of tremendous inefficiencies.
Innovation in transportation technologies and mobility services (autonomous and/or electric vehicles, e-bicycles, ride hailing and ridesharing services and platforms, real-time information services, etc.) is rapidly moving to implementation on our public rights of way.
How can we best design our transportation systems integrating both “old” and “new” technologies to provide for the safe, efficient, and dignified movement of people and goods within rapidly changing technological, social and economic contexts?
3:00 p.m. Opening remarks - Dr. Judy Farvolden, managing director of Mobility Network
3:10 p.m. Introduction to Mobility Technologies and Services knowledge cluster - Dr. Hugh H.T. Liu, professor at the Institute for Aerospace Studies and director of the Centre for Aerial Robotics Research and Education (CARRE)
3:15 p.m. Identifying the "Big Questions"
3:30 p.m. Discussing the intersections among the big questions
