Telemobility UTC


Executive Summary

Our nation is undergoing what is likely to be the broadest, deepest and longest natural experiment in the use of communications/information technology for tele-activities and e-processes in modern history. From telework to e-learning, telemedicine to e-shopping, and heavy reliance on e-commerce and home delivery, activity and mobility patterns have been transformed in a most dramatic manner under the COVID-19 risk mitigation measures.

Researchers at Northwestern University, UC-Berkeley, and UT-Austin’s McCombs School of Business are collaborating on research and outreach activities through a Tier I University Transportation Center on Telemobility aimed at assessing how ICT technologies and e-commerce processes will impact the demand for travel and mobility in the future, taking into consideration lessons learned from this dramatic natural experiment.
