Event Overview

This presentation will discuss how analytical planning models are deeply embedded in transportation planning practice. The emergence of automated vehicles will very likely test the predictive ability of these tools. We’ll discuss views on whether or not our models are up to the task, focusing on what we can learn from them today and what improvements we’ll need to make to learn from them in the future.
