TRL: The future of mobility is drawing closer

19 July 2017

Story from the Transport Research Laboratory .

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, this report places them into context and outlines the entire landscape of what the next generation of transport may look like.

For example, while there is 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 them. The Transport 2020 report pulls together the facts and studies that looks at how the older generation could impact mobility, vehicle design and technology.
