On Tuesday, April 18, 2017, FAU’s Center for Urban and Environmental Solutions (CUES),
School of Urban and Regional Planning, School of Architecture and the MetroLAB Collaborative presented a lecture with Professor Emeritus Robert Cervero, University of California-Berkeley: Active and Smart Mobility: Can They Co-Exist?
During the lunchtime lecture, Cervero presented his research on autonomous vehicles’ impacts on walking and cycling, two of the greenest forms of mobility conferring meaningful public health benefits. His work shows that autonomous, connected vehicles and other smart technologies are poised to promote increased automobility, stretching out cityscapes and in doing, may make it more difficult to walk and cycle. This talk drew upon research in the US and abroad on factors influencing active mobility and suggested pathways for increasing non-motorized transport in an era of autonomous technologies and other potentially disruptive megatrends.
