Disruption in Transportation, as some experts say, is here; so is this book at this critical inflection point in the history of transportation
planning, engineering, and operations. With a focus on improving safety and maximizing available systems to accommodate all modes
of travel, this work brings together an array of topics and themes on transportation technologies under the banner of Connected and
Automated Vehicles (CAV). The emerging technology implementing entities, industry leaders, original equipment manufacturers, standard
development organizations, researchers, and others are singularly focused on a global multilogue to promote Safety, Mobility, Environment,
and Economic Development (SMEEd). These discussions are technologically interdisciplinary and procedurally cross-functional, hence
the need for CAV: Developing Policies, Designing Programs, and Deploying Projects.

This book is aimed at the policy-maker who wants to know the high-level detail; the planner who chooses to pursue the most efficient
path to implementation; the professional engineer who needs to design a sustainable system; the practitioner who considers deployable
frameworks; the project manager who oversees the system deployment; the private sector consultant who develops and delivers a CAV
program; and the researcher who evaluates the project benefits and documents lessons learned. This book makes a business case for
implementing CAV technologies to achieve SMEEd goals; presents the possibilities and challenges to deploying emerging technologies;
identifies the institutional roles and responsibilities; and develops a policy framework for mainstreaming CAV.

Key Features

• A comprehensive perspective on emerging technologies and CAV policies, planning, and practice.
• A practical guide to support the development of a policy framework, business case, and justify funding.
• A real-world experience-driven discussion with case studies, lessons learned, and road map creation.
• A goal-oriented and practitioner-focused detail to draft, design, and deploy emerging technologies and CAV to achieve safety and
mobility outcomes.
