EP7 Beyond Journeys: Dr Lavinia Burski, Technology Consultant AECOM: Human-Vehicle understanding
💬 “People need to remember that autonomous vehicles are programmed by humans. And humans aren’t perfect. That’s the beauty of us, we make mistakes. Therefore, there’ll be mistakes in the programming of autonomous vehicles. Lavinia Burski
🎙️ Lavinia is currently a Technology Consultant at AECOM specialising in projects relating to Connected Autonomous Vehicles and future transport solutions. She has previously worked within the Aerospace/Defence sector and was involved in the delivery of research projects and growth strategies related to Autonomy and Unmanned Air Vehicles. She has a PhD from Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh and her research involved analysing specifications and checking their correctness in order to improve the safety of high integrity systems.
This is the Beyond Journeys series on the Boundless Podcast, we are exploring how the electrification of road travel will impact our lives and environment.
🎧 In this episode, Lavinia talks about:
💡 1.) How mobility is moving towards inclusive and integrated transport systems
💡 2.) How connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) fit in the wider transport system
💡 3.) How CAVs will interact with current and future infrastructure
💡 4.) Problems with pedestrian-CAV interaction
💡 5.) how shared vehicles/pods fit into the wider transport system
