The Driverless City: How will Automated Vehicles Shape Cities in the Future

If thought out, planners say, autonomous vehicles could increase car-sharing, which would reduce traffic congestion and air pollution. Because the technology will allow these vehicles to travel closer together, they will take up less lane space.

The Impact of Shared Mobility on Car Ownership

Car companies have accepted the world has changed, or will change soon, and they’re showing their hand by buying, or investing heavily in, startups like Lyft and Maven (GM), Velodyne and Civil Maps (Ford) and Moovel and Car2Go (Daimler). Meanwhile, everyone from Tesla to Apple is developing autonomous cars.

“If shared and autonomous vehicles are adopted as quickly as other technologies (like smartphones, cellphones, and the Internet),” says Deloitte in their report, “our modeling finds that significant change will begin within five years and that the market for personal mobility could transform dramatically over the next 25 years.”

The Road to Sustainable Aviation

COMMERCIAL AVIATION accounts for about 2% of global carbon emissions, while about 12% of all CO2 emissions come from the transportation sector. Within these figures, business and general aviation (B/GA) are accounted for, but it has always been a challenge to calibrate just how much these sub-sectors contribute globally versus the scheduled commercial sector.
Where are we in terms of Sustainable Aviation?

A look at Air Traffic and Urban Transport in Global Markets and Developing Countries

The traffic on roads is increasing at a rapid pace day-by-day. Road congestion is a major problem in urban and highly populated cities, and results in wastage of time and also impacts economic growth. Take for instance the situation in the U.S., where people spend about 90 hours in traffic jams each year, on an average. This increases the transportation expenditure of people by more than $1,000. The situation is the same, if not much worse, in countries such as China and India.
