The LEVITATE consortium is pleased to invite stakeholders, in particular public authorities, road users, researchers and industry players to participate in the Stakeholder Workshop, to discuss how the policy support tool (PST) – developed by the project – could help cities identifying the possible societal level impacts of connected and automated vehicles on roads.
The aim of this second meeting is to gather feedback from stakeholders on the first version of the policy support tool:
- predict the impact of vehicle automation (forecasting tool) and
- identify (policy) interventions to help achieve certain long-term mobility goals and/or to mitigate the potential negative effects of vehicle automation (backcasting tool).
The LEVITATE partners would like to hear your thoughts about (i) the structure and usability of the tool; (ii) which functionalities it should have; (iii) what level of customisation it should offer to enable meaningful outputs for users; and (iv) the backcasting methodology.
Workshop participants will have the opportunity to see how the first version of the policy support tool works using realistic scenarios and to provide feedback on the content of some of the building blocks of the tool, such as the measures that public authorities can take to manage the arrival of automated vehicles (policy interventions).
