    Gearing up for an exciting Bridge SF 2016 conference, ITS Berkeley and TSRC teamed up to host a Disrupting Mobility Hackathon at the ITS Library Sept. 3-4, 2016 to explore how Shared Automated Electric and Connected (SECA) vehicles will impact the way people and goods move within a city.

    You don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure out why UC Berkeley has designated parking areas for Nobel Laureates: if there's one thing harder to snag than a Nobel prize, it's a parking space on a UC campus. Car sharing programs on campus could be a part of the solution. Researchers at the TSRC joined with Zipcar to ask people at universities across the U.S. and Canada how car sharing programs influenced their behavior.

    The BRIDGE SF 2016 UC Berkeley Hackathon explores how Shared Automated Electric and Connected (SECA) vehicles will impact the way people and goods move within a city. Participants will be asked to define and solve these challenges: How will SECA vehicles impact residents, commuters and businesses?; Can SECA vehicles better serve the underserved?; Will SECA vehicles lead to greater safety?; What about adapting to new or unpredictable changes including emergencies?; How can multiple shared services work together?; and How can multi-modal integration be achieved between various public and private transportation modes?
