This Current Practices Paper examines the state of CEAS in Canada and internationally, specifically as it relates to LSAS, and the ways in which it can improve mobility and address longer-term transportation goals. Autonomous driverless shuttles offer the potential to dramatically change public transportation by making travel more convenient especially for the elderly and people with disabilities, reducing operating costs, and making it feasible to serve low-density communities, and other areas not adequately served by public transportation.
The paper discusses the economic, environmental, and societal benefits of CEAS technology, how it fits within the larger ITS architecture, and the implementation and operational challenges that are faced. It also identifies the many supporting technologies and standards necessary to continue to improve the autonomy, safety, and ability for LSAS to interact with vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians, and other objects present in mixed traffic environments.
