The Impact of New Mobility Services on the Automotive Industry

The rise of new mobility services (NMS) is part of a bigger and long-term gradual evolution of transportation preferences toward on-demand shared mobility in a multimodal system. CAR researchers have conducted an investigation with a focus on how these services are likely to impact the automotive industry. The report describes these transportation solutions enabled by emerging technologies and wireless connectivity as allowing for more convenient, efficient, and flexible travel, and examines impacts such as changing travel behavior and analyzes the effect on the traditional automotive industry.

Performance Based Planning and Programming for Pavement Management

Emerging technologies, such as connected and automated vehicle technology, offer new sources of data pertaining to the condition of infrastructure. In this report, CAR researchers examine the potential for using novel data sources for pavement condition assessment....

Impact of Automated Vehicle Technologies on Driver Skills

CAR researchers analyze the impacts of technological dependence on the driving skills and the ability of an operator to resume operation of the vehicle in the event of an automated vehicle (AV) failure or limitation. The findings presented in this work are based on...

Public Perceptions of Connected and Automated Vehicle Technologies

This report, commissioned by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), presents findings from research on public perceptions of connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technologies. The results of this research stem from a series of interviews with test drivers...

Global Harmonization of Connected Vehicle Communication Standards

This report examines international efforts to develop “harmonized” connected vehicle standards that would enable automakers, governments, and technology developers to, at a minimum, adopt analogous conceptual and technological frameworks across markets. While many...
