Equity Assessment for Emerging Transportation Technologies: A Comprehensive Literature Review and Case Study
Li, Xiaopeng; Zhang, Yu; Stuart, Amy L.
This proposal aims to develop understanding and quantify skewed distributions of benefits from emerging transportation technologies and services across different demographic groups in a metropolitan area. We will propose new equity measures in economy, environment and public health that can be integrated with multi-model transportation systems that include emerging technologies. A chronological comparison study will be conducted to analyze the impact of the emerging technologies on these equity measures. A case study in the Hillsborough County, Florida will be conducted to test and validate these measures,
while their transferability to other metropolitan areas across the nation will be also investigated.
