Research Roadmap -- Transformational Technologies (other than CV/AV). Topical White Papers for the TRB Forum on Automated Vehicles and Shared Mobility

The TRB Forum on Preparing for Automated Vehicles and Shared Mobility is interested in developing white papers and potential research needs statements in the following areas. Additional information on the issues is available at the Forum website under Forum Products ( (1) Models for Sharing of Data; (2) Potential Safety Scenarios during the Transition to Highly Automated Vehicles; (3) State and Local Policies to Ensure Safety Prior to Deployment; (4) Infrastructure Enablers for Automated Vehicles and Shared Mobility; (5) Net Positive (and Opportunities to Mitigate Negative) Social Impacts of Automated Vehicle Deployment and Shared Mobility; (6) Address Social Inclusion and Equity; (7) Potential Impacts of Higher Level Automated Vehicles and Shared Mobility on Traveler Behavior and Freight Movement; (8) Impacts of Shared Mobility on Transit and Vice-Versa; (9) Implications for Transportation Planning and Planning Models; (10) Impacts on Land Use, and how Land Use Impacts Automated Vehicles and Shared Mobility. The objective of this project is to develop white papers on each of the 10 issues that (1) describe the issue and possible implications for public policy, (2) summarize completed and ongoing research and deployment efforts (domestic and international), (3) provide links to key information resources, (4) identify remaining knowledge gaps, and (5) present research problem statements that are suitable for large research programs. As appropriate, these problem statements should identify innovative approaches to carrying out the research and opportunities for partnering with the private sector as well as other countries. Each paper is expected to be roughly 15-20 pages in length.
