A Post-COVID, Automated World: What Do We Plan For?
September 18, 2022 | 3:30pm – 5:00pm PT
For nearly fifty years personal travel patterns in the U.S. have been fairly predictable. In a post-COVID world, with a rise in the desire to work-from-home we are likely going to see some potentially significant and lasting impacts to our trip-making patterns. Coupled with recent advances in vehicle automation, the when, where, why, and how we get around may change drastically over the next decade. With all this uncertainty, how do we plan? This session will feature presentations on what we are seeing with post-COVID travel patterns, recent advances and directions in the ride-hailing and automated vehicle industry, and a response on how cities, regions and transit agencies should prepare.

Using Data to Improve Transportation I
September 21, 2022 | 8:00am – 9:00am PT
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is breaking ground on a pilot deployment of a novel congestion-prediction variable speed limit (VSL) system in Spring 2022. The primary objectives of this system are to improve safety and provide more reliable travel conditions along a challenging segment of Interstate 95, as described in Figure 1. This technical paper provides an overview of VDOT’s I-95 VSL Pilot project, with specific attention to the crucial role of data in the design of the system, the novel congestion-prediction algorithm, and the data dashboards developed for system monitoring and evaluation.
