Automated vehicles are estimated to produce mountains of data- approximately 40 GBit per second (Lucid Motors). A fully connected, automated, and integrated mobility future will also include other data-generating devices and services, some of which are on the road today- from GPS located e-scooters, to app-enabled transportation network companies, to individual smart phones tracking our locations and trips in real time. New sources of data create new opportunities for cities to understand, plan for, deliver, and monitor mobility services. This session will explore how data is being leveraged today and in a connected/automated future to drive mobility outcomes. Specifically, the session will explore:

Learning objectives:

1. What data will be produced in a CV/AV future by vehicles and how this can be leveraged for more informed decision-making. 

2. How to integrate data produced by private AV shuttle companies and TNCs to improve overall mobility. 

3. How integrated big-data platforms can be used to better understand multiple sources of data and make more informed decisions, especially given new sources coming with CV/AV. 

4. How cities and agencies are leveraging data today to do scenario-planning and make investment decisions for a CV/AV future.
