July 15, 2020 3Rev Policy Webinar: The COVID-19 Pandemic: What Does it Mean for Transportation and Mobility?
Speakers: Giovanni Circella, Dan Sperling (ITS-Davis) and Lisa Snapp, Transportation and Climate Division, US EPA Moderator: Mollie Cr D'Agostino, Policy Director, 3Rev Future Mobility Program
The COVID-19 pandemic has been hugely disruptive, and will likely have lingering impacts on how we get around in the future. This webinar will provide insights from the analysis of recently collected data from new research at UC Davis, highlighting a large data collection effort with 10,000 survey respondents, reporting on how COVID19 affected their travel behaviors, work activities and household organization. The research provides information on changes in mode choice, vehicle purchase intentions, adoption of telecommuting, e-shopping and delivery services. The focus of the discussion will be on the implications for the climate and for communities.

June 4, 2020 PH&EV Webinar: Will partially automated vehicles change the way we drive?
Speaker: Scott Hardman, Research Engineer, Plug-in Hybrid & Electric Vehicle Research Center
Moderator: Dan Sperling, Founding Director, Institute of Transportation Studies, UC Davis
Description: Consumers are purchasing and using partially automated vehicles-which use adaptive cruise control, steering assistance, and emergency braking to assist driving-yet little research has been done to understand how these vehicles are changing the way people drive. Research on personally-owned driverless vehicles suggests that these vehicles would result in large increases in vehicle use. What about partially automated vehicles, such as those with Tesla Autopilot or GM Super Cruise? By easing the driving experience, do they also induce more travel? Early evidence suggests yes. This presentation will explore qualitative and quantitative research findings from ITS UC Davis on how consumers are using partially automated vehicles, and how it is affecting their travel behavior.
