Droning and Driving. Still no flying cars, but are drones and autonomous vehicles the future of transportation?

PRESENTED BY:

Ryan Noyes
Manager, Design & Visualization Team, VHB

Joe Segale
Director of Policy, Planning and Research, VTrans

DESCRIPTION:

This session will cover how emerging technologies like drones and preliminary design/visualization applications have changed how we approach outreach on projects. Allowing us to present our designs in context improves stakeholder understanding. Utilizing the drones to capture current conditions and bring those conditions into our design applications helps clarify design intent.

Connected and autonomous vehicle technology is advancing quickly and is already being utilized in cars and trucks traveling on highways today. This new technology promises to improve safety significantly and increase mobility. Like any technology, connected and self-driving vehicles also pose other opportunities and perhaps some unintended consequences. This session will provide some basic information on connected and autonomous vehicles, and describe the opportunities and impacts to the transportation system, land use and our communities under different scenarios.

PRESENTED BY:

John Adams, AICP
Director, Vermont Center for Geographic Information (VCGI)

Mike Brouillette, GISP
Lidar Program Manager, VCGI

DESCRIPTION:

The Vermont Center for Geographic Information’s Lidar Program (VLP) is months away from achieving full lidar coverage for the entire state of Vermont and they are excited! Lidar, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to generate precise, three-dimensional information about the earth and its surface characteristics. Uses range from hydrological modelling and high resolution land cover mapping to mountain bike trail planning and archeological exploration. Learn more about what lidar data is, new ways to obtain it and how planners can make of use this incredibly useful data.

See how to quickly, affordably and with direct buy in and support of your community improve the public spaces in your community while enhancing the quality of life for all residents.

Explore the Vermont Transportation Resiliency App – a new screening method to evaluate vulnerability of closure or failure for roads, bridges, and culverts. The goal is to identify critical, high risk road segments and crossing structures to guide infrastructure planning and capital expenditure programming. The app will be accessible to municipal, state and regional government agencies for planning at the watershed or sub-watershed level.
