Measuring Impact of Emerging Transportation Technologies on Community Equity in Economy, Environment and Public Health

This proposal aims to develop understanding and quantify skewed distributions of benefits from emerging transportation technologies and services across different demographic groups in a metropolitan area. The research team will propose new equity measures in economy, environment and public health that can be integrated with multi-model transportation systems that include emerging technologies. A chronological comparison study will be conducted to analyze the impact of the emerging technologies on these equity measures. A case study in the Hillsborough County, Florida will be conducted to test and validate these measures, while their transferability to other metropolitan areas across the nation will be also investigated.
