Description

Transport Data Paradox: Should commuters exit the driver's seat?


Advances in transport technologies mean accessing real-time traffic data around congestion, cost and safety is easier than ever before.

With this wealth of information at your fingertips, you know to avoid that blocked road, to get the cheaper and faster ferry, or to jump in a cab instead of facing track delays. The only problem is - now millions of others know that too. Will this really save us?

Future mobility has captured the imaginations of academics and commuters alike for exciting concepts like autonomous vehicles and transport innovation. However, not enough attention is given to the equally disruptive yet growing availability of information, and its effects on commuter behaviour.

In our next Learn@Lunch session, Advisian Chair of Transport Innovation, Professor S. Travis Waller will explore how real-time travel data has become a paradox of modern mobility, potentially exacerbating issues rather than allowing us to bypass them.

In this presentation, Professor Waller will unpack how we must leverage new technologies like driverless cars and innovative mobility options to accelerate the potential of real-time data, and rise to the human challenge.
