    REDCAR Colloquium September 25, 2010 California College of the Arts (CCA) | Timken Hall San Francisco, California Rethinking Urban Transportation: New Strategies for Mobility Many metropolitan areas continue to experience rapid growth, with some like Los Angeles receiving up to 500 new residents each day. One of the current challenges for expanding cities is the design of a flexible transportation infrastructure that can respond to an ever increasing demand on resources and systems; one that is contained within the vision of a socially equitable and sustainable society. This mode of infrastructural response necessitates a rethinking of traditional personal mobility strategies. The colloquium served as a vehicle to examine innovative transportation solutions in a systemic manner so as to address the reality of a typical North American polycentric metropolitan area. Instead of examining solutions that apply to idealized (but non-existent) urban centers, this colloquium embraces the contemporary condition — the messy, chaotic, politically and socially balkanized, poly-centric metropolis. By exploring current technologies, as well as those which have reached a high degree of feasibility, this interdisciplinary colloquium will explore the potential of an ubiquitous self-regulating system that can cope with and adapt to the unpredictability of a mobile society. New Strategies for Mobility - Rethinking Urban Transportation Session 2 – the overlay – explores the possibilities of how the urban realm will be transformed and how urban planning and infrastructure will react/respond. The extent of this exploration would include the varying effects to the built realm, social networks, real estate speculation, architectural response, and morphing of infrastructure. This session discusses the design implication of autonomous transit on the built & social environments. Urban development will naturally emerge around social activity hotspots. The overlay of route-processing software upon the physical realm will cause serendipitous social and transit “hot-spots” to emerge thus creating an organic evolution of true TODs. With “REDCAR-like” applications downloadable to personal communication devices, transit options will be integrated into and tailored to a users’ personal daily tasks and social interactions. Transit will adapt you and not the other way around. Introduction by Mona El Khafif Moderator: Mona El Khafif / CCA Speakers: Therese Tierney /UIUC – Understanding the public realm: Application of Social Networking Christine Outram / MIT SENSEable City Lab Ken Greenberg / Greenberg Consultants – Urban Design Implications: Will it work?

New Strategies for Mobility - Rethinking Urban Transportation Session 1 – the system – looks at coupling smart P2P (person to person) communication technologies with the anticipated progression of smart, clean automated vehicles to augment existing transportation networks providing a sustainable and socially networked solution to mobility for urban contexts. This session will present an overview of the latest research in transportation engineering technologies. It will focus on the “hardware” components of the concept, principally the reinvented ecologically sustainable automobile, running on an automated adaptation of existing freeway infrastructure, as well as an autonomous vehicle guidance system allowing safer navigation of the existing street systems.
