TRR: Modeling Individual Preferences for Ownership and Sharing of Autonomous Vehicle Technologies

Lifestyle factors play an important role in shaping use of autonomous vehicles. Younger, urban residents who are more educated and technologically savvy are more likely to be early adopters of AV technologies than are older, suburban, and rural individuals, a fact that favors a sharing-based service model over private ownership. "Modeling Individual Preferences for Ownership and Sharing of Autonomous Vehicle Technologies,"  by Patrícia S. Lavieri, Venu M. Garikapati, Chandra R. Bhat, Ram M. Pendyala...

TRR "impact factor" takes a major leap forward in prestige

Transportation Research Record: The Journal of the Transportation Research Board  has taken a major leap in the newly released 2019 Impact Factors. Jumping to an impact factor of 1.029, this is the largest single jump in the history of the TRR. The measurement is calculated by the number of citations in 2019 of papers published in 2017 and 2018. Here are TRR's top cited publications for 2019 . One factor in the increase is TRB's relationship with Sage Publishing, which began in 2018 and offers a la...

Implementing Alternative Technical Concepts in All Types of Highway Project Delivery Methods

There is an emerging view in the construction industry that better performance or better value for money can be achieved by integrating teamwork for planning, design, and construction of projects. The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Web-Only Document 277: Implementing Alternative Technical Concepts in All Types of Highway Project Delivery Methods seeks to assist integrated construction projects to include the construction contractor in the design process in some meaningful manne...

Guidebook for Implementing Alternative Technical Concepts in All Types of Highway Project Delivery Methods

The past decade has been characterized by the pressing need to rapidly renew the nation’s deteriorating infrastructure, which has driven the increased use of alternative contracting methods for transportation and other infrastructure projects. The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Research Report 937: Guidebook for Implementing Alternative Technical Concepts in All Types of Highway Project Delivery Methods is designed to help guide alternative technical concepts (ATCs) in the stat...

Featured Centennial Paper - Design and Rehabilitation of Asphalt Pavements: History and Future

A common goal from the Standing Technical Committee on Design and Rehabilitation of Asphalt Pavements' inception in 1939 was to move the state-of-practice of pavement engineering towards the state-of-the-art, and continually support the move towards the implementation and adoption of improved methods for designing and predicting the performance of flexible pavements. Many issues facing the industry today are complex, cross-cutting problems that will require techniques from diverse fields such as data sci...
