Urban Street Evolution: The Opportunity from Emerging Transportation Technologies to Create More Human-centred Places
With the rapid population growth in cities, the existing transportation system exposes insurmountable problems due to restrictions of conventional technologies. In this circumstance, some emerging transportation technologies become potential solutions, while relevant research is mainly from the domain of engineering and information technologies. From the perspectives of city planners and urban designers, this research aims at exploring the question about how can street design response to the advent of those new technologies and regard this transformation as an opportunity to revive street life. By identifying the key features of four main technologies: autonomous vehicles (AVs), automated mass transit, shared bicycle or scooters, and better delivery systems, this research tries to find out proactive alteration of streets to accommodate those elements and become more human-centred spaces. A tool-kit, which consists of five tools, shows the spatial design guidance for different circumstances on streets and the deployment of street facilities. The tool-kit is applied in a specific site in Tianhe Central Business District in Guangzhou, China. By examining the proposed tool-kit and demonstrating the possibility of embedding those transportation technologies into our urban environment, this research presents a probable prospect of vibrant, versatile, safe and resilient streets, which contain multiple transport modes and support our urban life.
