The Emerging Technologies Committee will research and identify new and emerging technologies that play an important role in the RTP/SCS; and for the three (3) policy committees (CEHD, EEC and TC) to utilize the Emerging Technologies Committee as a resource.
Identify technological and societal trends (e.g. Mobility as a Service; Zero Emission, Autonomous and Connected Vehicles; Smart Cities and Intelligent Transportation Systems) that may fundamentally alter the use of the region’s transportation system.
Frame potential policy considerations to enable the region to harness the benefits of emerging technologies that reduce sprawl, vehicle miles traveled (VMT), and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Highlight opportunities for under-represented, disadvantaged communities to utilize emerging technologies.
Explore technologies which, while in a nascent or testing stage, remain relevant to the future of the region’s transportation system.
