Societal Level Impacts of Connected and Automated Vehicles

Deliverables

Dissemination and communication strategy

Report detailing the dissemination and communication strategy.

Workshop findings to define short, medium and long term future of freight transport

A report summarising the results of a workshop held to gather opinions on what is coming for future freight transport.

Methods for forecasting the impacts of connected and automated vehicles

A report detailing the methods used for forecasting the impacts aof connected and automated vehicles.

Workshop findings to define short, medium and long term future of passenger car transport

A report summarising the results of a workshop held to gather opinions on what is coming for connected and automated passenger cars.

Initial Exploitation Plan

A report exploring how the results can be best exploited.

Workshop findings to define short, medium and long term future of urban transport

A report detailing the results of a stakeholder consultation to gather expert opinions about what is coming for connected and automated urban transport, and provide related evidence. The workshop shall be conducted using a ‘Future Enquiry’26 in which a groupprocess builds on existing methods to produce insights that are grounded in the experience of stakeholders, reflecting the reality of everyday life, and identifying existing strengths as well as needs. This will provide context for the subsequent WP5 tasks.

Project leaflet

A leaflet will be produced introducing the scope, activities and contact details of the project. The leaflet will be distributed at relevant European transport events.

Intermediate exploitation plan

Report looking at how results can be exploited.

Definition of desirable scenarios

A report detailing the desired scenarios following filtering of the high-level targets by stakeholders.

Converting impacts of connected and automated vehicles to monetary terms

The project plans to state all impacts in numerical terms. This report will detail the methods used to derive the numerical values.

Definition of quantified policy goals

The report will detail the results of the mapping of different stakeholders to guarantee inputs in all areas of the study, i.e. safety, environment, mobility etc. as well as inputs at all levels (cities, regions, nations, EU).

A taxonomy of potential impacts of connected and automated vehicles at different levels of implementation

The first task is to identify potential impacts of connected and automated vehicles. This task will be based on a literature review and consultation with stakeholders. Impacts will be categorised: (1) First order impacts, which occur in the transport system, on a trip-by-trip basis (2) Second order impacts, which involve system-wide changes in the transport system. (3) Third order impacts, which are wider societal impacts.

PST User Guide

Levitate will issue an audio-visual user guide for the PST, highlighting how to access the PST and providing a series of quick start (video) tutorials as well as a detailed description of the content of the system and links to further information.

Detailed list of forecast scenarios, applicable forecasting methodologies and necessary output variables

A report detailing the scenarios to use to study the impacts of interventions on safety, mobility, environment, social, resource, infrastructure and economics and the necessary outcomes of the forecasting models.

Feasible paths of interventions

A report specifying the possible interventions, ranging from policy interventions, via infrastructure interventions to soft measures like awareness raising.
