Book Description :

While many transportation and city planners, researchers, students, practitioners, and political leaders are familiar with the technical nature and promise of vehicle automation, consensus is not yet often seen on the impact that will result, or the policies and actions that those responsible for transportation systems should take. The End of Driving: Transportation Systems and Public Policy Planning for Autonomous Vehicles explores both the potential of vehicle automation technology and the barriers it faces when considering coherent urban deployment. The book evaluates the case for deliberate development of automated public transportation and mobility-as-a-service as paths towards sustainable mobility, describing critical approaches to the planning and management of vehicle automation technology. It serves as a reference for understanding the full life cycle of the multi-year transportation systems planning processes, including novel regulation, planning, and acquisition tools for regional transportation. Application-oriented, research-based, and solution-oriented rather than predict-and-warn, The End of Driving concludes with a detailed discussion of the systems design needed for accomplishing this shift. From the Foreword by Susan Shaheen: The authors ... extend potential solutions through a set of open-ended exercises after each chapter. Their approach is both strategic and deliberate. They lead the reader from definitions and context setting to the transition toward automation, employing a range of creative strategies and policies. While our quest to understand how to deploy automated vehicles is just beginning, this book provides a thoughtful introduction to inform this evolution. Offers a workable public transit solution design melding the traditional “acquire-and-operate mode with the absorption of new technology Provides a step-by-step discussion of digital systems designs and effective regulation-by-data approaches needed for a new urban mobility Learning aids include case study scenarios, chapter objectives and discussion questions, sidebars and a glossary

Book Description :

Emerging Paradigms in Urban Mobility: Planning, Finance and Implementation explains the types of new urban mobility planning paradigms that are emerging throughout the world, along with their potential to transform the transportation landscape. As half of the world’s 7 billion people now live in cities, thus causing severe road congestion, increased air pollution, energy insecurity and sustainability problems in cities and the planet itself, this book presents new paradigms that are emerging to address these problems, along with other topics of note, including economic efficiency, health, the well-being of cities and their residents, urban mobility transformations, and the role of social media. In addition, the book looks at Integrated Corridor Management and how it improves the people-moving performance of multi-modal transport systems in high demand urban corridors and how countries balance the mobility benefits of motorcycles with the environmental and safety threats they pose. Provides previously unpublished research on new approaches to integrating governance, the changing role of IT, and shared mobility initiatives Links transportation and land use, climate change, and poverty reduction and gender, going well beyond the technical issues of transport planning Highlights successful factors that have worked and how they can be tailored to different contexts Includes learning aids, such as case studies, text boxes and chapter openers and summaries

In 1905, the American Railway Master mechanics Association adopted a resolution, authorizing the creation of ¿...an illustrated dictionary of each and every part used in the building of locomotives.¿ The result, edited by famed technical writer George Fowler and published by the railroad gazette, was nearly 700 pages long, and richly illustrated with photographs, etchings, and blueprints. The Locomotive Dictionary was a triumph, and became one of the definitive engineering references for the railroad industry during the steam age. This high-quality reprint of a first edition of this wonderful book, represents the first time in decades that it has been available to the public. Softbound in two volumes, it is a wonderful reference that no steam fan or model railroader should be without.

Book Description :

Tech experts Vivek Wadhwa and Alex Salkever describe dozens of astonishing technological advances in this fascinating and thought-provoking book, which asks what kind of future lies ahead—Star Trek or Mad Max? Breakthroughs such as personalized genomics, drones, self-driving vehicles, and artificial intelligence could make our lives healthier, safer, and easier. On the other hand, the same technologies raise the specter of a frightening future—eugenics, a jobless economy, a complete loss of privacy, and ever-worsening economic inequality. Wadhwa says that we need to ask three questions about every emerging technology: Does it have the potential to benefit everyone equally? What are the risks and the rewards? And does it promote autonomy or dependence? This edition is updated throughout and includes a new chapter on quantum computing, which promises vastly increased processing times—and vastly increased security risks. In the end, our future is up to us; our hands may not be on the wheel, but we will decide the driverless car's destination.

Book Description :

The cognitive construct of situation awareness (SA) has not been well developed in the domain of driving. The objective of this study was to define a new transactional model of SA in various driving behaviors and activities, as influenced by automation and in-vehicle device use. Specifically, this study investigated the implications of adaptive cruise control (ACC) and cellular phone use in driving on a direct and objective measure of SA; investigate the effect of varying reliability of in-vehicle automation (navigation aids) on driver SA and trust; and assess differences in human trust in a human aid versus an automation aid in a simulated driving task. Twenty participants drove a virtual car and performed a freeway driving task (Experiment A) as well as a suburb navigation task (Experiment B). In the freeway driving, participants were required to drive using ACC or manual control modes, and received navigation information from one of two sources: a human or in-vehicle automation aid via cell phone or separate display screen, respectively. During the navigation driving, participants were required to drive through the suburban area following all traffic signs and directions from the navigation aid under different levels of information reliability (100%, 80% and 60%). A control condition was also used in which aids only presented a telemarketing survey and participants navigated using a map. Driver SA was assessed at the end of each experiment using a SA global assessment technique. Driver workload was collected at the same time using the NASA- TLX. Driver trust in the navigation aid information was measured using a subjective survey of initial subject trust expectations as well as a subjective rating at the close of each trial (end of Experiment B). Across both experiments, multiple dimensions of task performance were measured. MANOVA results for Experiment A revealed significant main effects for both ACC control mode and navigation aid type on driver performance, b.
