Call for papers, Transport Reviews: “Long-term implications of automated vehicles” (deadline November 1st, 2017)

http://explore.tandfonline.com/cfp/pgas/ttrv-cfp-longterm-implications-auto-vehic

About a century ago, private vehicles started being massively introduced into western societies. Several decades later preventing and/or mitigating adverse effects of this mobility technology became of critical importance for urban and transport policy. Automated driving technology is likely to bring substantial changes in future urban mobility. This special issue focuses on possible long-term social, economic and environmental implications of automated vehicles. [...]

We want to call the attention to a new call for papers in *Transportation*
on improving policy making for emerging sharing, automation and
*electrification* transportation solutions, with a submission deadline of
December 1st, 2017.

SI: Transportation System Analysis for Better Policy-Making

~~~~~*Motivation*

The rise of shared mobility, manifested by services such as car-sharing,
ridesourcing, bike-sharing and crowdsourcing delivery, is fundamentally
changing the landscape of travel and transport. As the vehicle automation
and connectivity technology matures, these shared mobility services could
eventually evolve into a powerful alternative to the current model of car
ownership. Moreover, the collective ownership, being more rational [...]

PhD Studentship: Understanding and Designing for the ‘Digital Native’ in the Context of Vehicle Human Machine Interfaces
http://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/BDG743/phd-studentship-understanding-and-designing-for-the-digital-native-in-the-context-of-vehicle-human-machine-interfaces/

Project Detail:
In recent years there has been a growing trend in design which recognises the opportunities that arise from being aware of and designing for the behaviours of ‘digital natives’, otherwise known as ‘Generation Z’. This trend involves developing an understanding of the aspirations and behaviours of people who have grown up in an environment in which detailed information on practically any topic is instantly available and constant connectivity to others is an expectation. This ‘always connected’ generation has the potential [...]
