In a free public seminar at 3:30 PM on December 4, in room 1115 of the Wisconsin Energy Institute, UW–Madison Transportation Systems Management and Operations Manager in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Peter Rafferty will give a talk on automated vehicles and energy consumption.

This session will provide an introduction to automated vehicles (AVs), what they are and aren’t, and how they work (or don’t work… yet), with the objective of greater understanding of where we are and where we’re headed with AVs. With several examples, we will address common questions, outline key benefits, and allay some misconceptions. This will include an overview of the Wisconsin AV Proving Grounds (WiscAV.org); linkages with connected vehicles, electric vehicles, and shared mobility; and discussion of some implications on policy, regulation, enforcement, energy, and land use.
