Impacts and Costs of Connected and Automated Vehicles

One of my current projects is working with ICF and the EDR Group to calculate the infrastructure, vehicle, and user costs of multiple potential deployment scenarios for connected and autonomous vehicles. My role is as a ssubject matter expert on connected and automated vehicles, In addition to producing the cost estimates, we are developing an automated tool to analyze costs based on varying assumptions that can be selected by the user. The work is being conducted for the FHWA Office of Policy Studies. More information on the project can be found on the EDR Group’s write-up.
