A wide study on the advent of an intelligently connected driverless public transport system.

This project is one of a number exploring this theme in a variety of manifestations.

In this, the second century of ubiquitous travel, technology is at a tipping point where the privately owned car may well become a shared use highly connected and automated vehicle. The implications of this emerging mobility will be complex and as yet unforeseen challenges will emerge.

Autonomous vehicles and their integration into existing public transport networks is a pressing one in many countries, including Australia. This series of projects advances the MADA Mobility Lab work in this area.
