AECOM is studying feasibility, planning and designing pilot projects, then developing, financing, operating and maintaining the infrastructure and programs to make connected and automated vehicles, including self-driving cars, buses and trucks, a safe reality around the world.
Our lives in the near future will be highly influenced by cars that sense and avoid collisions while simultaneously alerting other cars, pedestrians and cyclists of this avoidance; trucks that can carry more cargo in less space; on-demand shuttles that can take you from a train stop to your final destination; city centers without parking lots, electric vehicles that don’t need to stop to recharge as their occupants use the vehicle as an extension of their home, traveling from point A to B.
By carefully mapping how connected and automated vehicles will affect future transportation networks, AECOM is helping to forecast, develop and meet federal, regional, and local safety, mobility, and environmental goals. With a focus on research and development, analytics, security, design, construction, operations and maintenance, our experts are prepared with integrated solutions for the next wave of transportation innovation.
United States Department of Transportation: Researched and assisted with development of a concept of operations for vehicle to infrastructure safety applications.
Minnesota Department of Transportation: Autonomous Bus Pilot Project: Conducted a feasibility study for an autonomous bus that can safely operate in cold climates.
