Global Transport 2050: scenarios and implications
During the lecture, Dr Ayed Al-Qahtani, Senior Project Manager at the World Energy Council, set out two distinct scenarios for the global transport sector in 2050. He then detailed the findings of a yearlong study involving the World Energy Council's global member network and their modelling work with the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland.

 

Top 10 future transportation that will blow your mind
Plains, trains, and automobiles may have carried us through the 20th century, but these days, they’re old news. The transportation of the future will be more along the lines of magnetic levitation, jetpacks, and zip lines that fit in a backpack—and they could be here sooner than you think.

What will transport look like in 2040? | Inside Energy
The UK recently set out its strategy to reduce carbon emissions from transport. But what might that future might look like? Is enough being done around the world to shift to more sustainable forms of transport? And how are different parts of the world going to get there? Inside Energy talks to Andy Eastlake, managing director of the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership and Baroness Brown of Cambridge, vice-chair of the UK’s Committee on Climate Change.

 

Hyperloop: designing the future of transport?
Elon Musk hopes to revolutionise public transport with Hyperloop - a system capable of speeds of more than 1200 kilometres per hour with zero emissions. Musk’s company Space X is running a student competition to advance the technology. Hyperloop UPV, a team from the Technical University of Valencia in Spain, are working round the clock testing all the key components of their pod, which they hope will propel them to victory.

 

Future transport system | future vehicles in 2050
Transportation has evolved relatively slowly. Sure, trains and cars have drastically improved since their introduction in the early 19th century. But really, we still rely on these old, albeit modified, forms of transportation. In the next 30 years, though, we are likely to see more change in transportation technology than we've seen in the last 100 years.

 

The future of transportation systems
Daniel Sperling’s research examines the potential benefits, impacts, and synergies of the three transportation “revolutions:” electrification, automation, and pooling. In this seminar, Sperling describes what needs to happen for this new transportation paradigm to truly benefit the public interest. Sperling provides insight into the forces—from effective government policies to partnerships between transit operators, mobility service companies, automakers, and others—that will be instrumental in enhancing social equity, environmental sustainability, and urban livability.

 

Autonomous Vehicles and the Future of Transport
For decades, drivers everywhere have dreamed of having a car that drives itself. Now that autonomous vehicles are here, what are the implications in the Bay Area and beyond? From Tesla and Uber to Lyft and Google, autonomous vehicles seem to be everywhere in 2016. Will we all be passengers in our own cars soon? What about the future of public transportation? Join our panel of experts to discuss the possibilities, challenges and what lies ahead for autonomous vehicles.
