The Near Future for Connected Transport

. from Self-Driving Cars to the HyperloopProfessor John MilesUniversity of CambridgeDepartment of Engineering

Why do people sit in traffic jams?

Providing a Better Solution

To become the preferred choice, our system must outperform the current best:

Spontaneous availability

Door-to-door service

Reliability

Competitive price

Attractive space

The Current Best

Put it on the Railway?

How much Headroom Exists in our Strategic Road Network?(225,000miles)

1. Reduce Minor Incidents2,000 fatalities20,000 serious injuries200,000 minor injuries2,000,000 fender benders

2. Increase Lane Occupancy

Normal VehiclesAutonomous Vehicles

Overall, 25% headroom is not an unreasonable expectation

We could, quite likely, get considerably more on high speed roads (x2?)
