Welcome to the Transportation Workgroup.
This workgroup’s objective is to draw upon the knowledge and expertise of the many individuals and organizations around the world who are most knowledgeable about the whole range of transportation issues, from individual needs to international product transport and distribution, to make a plausible estimate of what would be required to meet the one-time goal of making public and private transportation universally available and safe, and what would be needed thereafter to maintain its availability at that level.
The first step, therefore, is to identify those expert individuals and organizations. Below is the list as it has been developed thus far. If you happen upon additional information sources that you believe will assist in this effort, please let us know by way of the CONTACT form. Or, if you would like to engage in your own line of research, let us know the results. And finally, if you feel the concept of the Whole Earth Design Project is something that you may wish to become involved in, let’s get acquainted.
The situation now:
“The CityCar electric automobile, developed and prototyped by Smart Cities, is designed to meet the demand for enclosed personal mobility — with weather protection, climate control and comfort, secure storage, and crash protection — in the cleanest and most economical way possible. It weighs less than a thousand pounds, parks in much less space than a Smart Car, and is expected to get the equivalent of 150 to 200 miles per gallon of gasoline. Since it is battery-electric, it produces no tailpipe emissions.” — MIT’s Changing Places
“Traffic congestion is a terrible threat to our economy. The analogy is cardiovascular. If our bodies’ arteries (arterials) clog, we have two choices: We can die, or we can surgically rebuild them a new way. Our cities are on course to die as their arteries clog with congestion. If we continue on this path, properties will devalue, people and jobs will leave the cities, and cultural institutions will decay. As cities die, their economic productivity disappears, crippling our national economy.” — Robert W. Galvin, Introduction to Mobility First by Sam Staley and Adrian Moore
“Proponents say the promise [of self-driving cars] is enormous. Turning the wheel over to computers could lead to less traffic, fewer collisions, and more transportation options for aging societies. The world’s population is predicted to grow 33 percent to 9.3 billion, by 2050. If that population were to live like Americans, there would be 7.7 billion cars on the roads–up from 850 million today. That enormous fleet would consume 375 million barrels of oil per day, more than five times the global production in 2008.” — Bloomberg Businessweek
