Connected Vehicles & Automated Vehicles

Transforming transportation

The future of transportation is evolving as connected and automated (autonomous) vehicles (CV/AV) gain momentum...

For 60 years, we’ve been partnering with transportation agencies to deliver their highway infrastructure and capacity improvements. It’s what we do. As we look at the future of CV/AV infrastructure deployments throughout the transportation network, we can play an important role in helping you leverage CV/AV solutions. When you want to improve safety, mobility, and your impact on the environment, our team will help you develop solutions while also enhancing operational efficiency by leveraging rapid technological advances—changes that dramatically alter the future of transportation. Our involvement with original equipment manufacturers, technology companies, regulatory agencies, professional organizations, and CV/AV working groups helps us provide a unique international perspective regarding the evolution of the CV/AV industry. From visioning, programming, and conceptual thinking to planning, designing, implementing, and operating CV/AV solutions, Stantec is your trusted advisor.

<p>Dean J. Palumbo:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Autonomous shuttles are a great compliment to public transit. It really joins that first and last mile, from our communities to where the transit stations are located.</p> <p>AlexanderMehran:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; There's a great deal more than software and hardware that puts these vehicles on the road. This is a collaborative effort between business and government, for public good.</p> <p>Marion L.:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; We have successfully deployed these autonomous shuttles on 50 sites.</p> <p>Drivers:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; All aboard.</p> <p>Marion L.:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Located in 14 different countries. We are very excited to finally be launching them in the United States with this project. EasyMile is extremely proud to stand here today as a partner with Bishop Ranch, the Contra Costa Transport Authority and GoMentum Station. I also want to acknowledge Stantec and First Transit who are both playing an integral role in advancing this pilot demonstration project.</p> <p>Tim McGowan:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; First Transit's excited to be part of the EasyMile project because it's going to allow us to transport more people, in a safer way in the first and last mile.</p> <p>Randell Iwasaki:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I don't think it's too much to say that we're redefining mobility.</p> <p>Habib S.:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The diversity of the companies that are represented at GoMentum Station from the auto manufacturers, technology company, communication company, insurance company, professional organization representing the real goal scenario that they one day they may change the landscape and the ecosystem in that transportation.</p> <p>Speaker 8:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Using these vehicles to compliment existing transit service will reduce the number of cars on the road, reduce green house gas emissions, and encourage more transit use.</p> <p>Dean J. Palumbo:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; For you personally giving yourself, your time, your own money, really being behind this technology, what's brought you to this point?</p> <p>AlexanderMehran:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Well, we've been involved in transportation for almost four decades. We've been trying to be on the cutting edge of transportation to be able to solve for the last and first mile problem, which is a major issue in transportation in general.</p> <p>Speaker 11:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; You look at projects knowing that their lifecycle moves well past the technology curve.</p> <p>Speaker 12:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; And we're using that technology to help you with where you want to go.</p>
