iCity-CATTS: Research Themes

The iCity Centre for Automated and Transformative Transportation Systems (iCity-CATTS) will bring academic researchers together with municipal, provincial and federal governments, and the private sector to create analytical tools and decision support systems, along three themes (Figure 4):

  • quantify the impacts of transformative technologies on transportation system demands, infrastructure capacities and system performance,
  • guide the inevitable transformation in socially positive directions, and
  • respect, protect and improve the economic, social and environmental sustainability of our future cities.
