Emerging Transportation Technology and Innovation

Phase 1 of the Emerging Transportation Technology and Innovation pillar is on three themes : connected and automated vehicles, urban air mobility and advanced air mobility, and freight and supply chain technology. The four UC ITS campuses are collaboratively developing white papers in each of these areas that describe the state of the science and related policies and identify potential critical research topics related to key policy questions. In addition, this pillar will convene multi-stakeholder workshops to co-create a multi-year, multi-disciplinary research agenda that  maps future research needs and proposes strategies for fulfilling these needs. The pillar also supports seed grants to leverage existing projects and resources to advance emerging transportation technology initiatives in the three pillar focus areas.
