The future mobility research group at the Precourt Energy Efficiency Center addresses one of the greatest challenges facing cities today: the need to develop sustainable transportation solutions that are safe, reliable, affordable, resilient, efficient, and have a limited impact on our environment. Our research explores the energy and climate impacts of transportation, behavioral aspects of mobility decisions, and transportation and energy transformations that can inform strategies, policies, and new technologies for a more sustainable transportation future.
Our current major research themes include:
» Shared-use mobility
» Vehicle electrification and vehicle-grid integration
» Automated and autonomous vehicles
» Transportation demand management and behavioral incentives
The future mobility research group hosts a weekly seminar series during the academic year. The seminar is open to the public, and no advance registration is needed. All talks are on Thursdays at 11:00am in the Y2E2 building, room 105 on the Stanford University campus.
