Which are the organisation’s thematic competences and experiences relevant for ART-Forum?
AAU's main competencies lie in the area of extensive research in mobilities and urban studies including a current evaluation of test of autonomous bus system in Aalborg East in collaboration with Aalborg Kommune. We focus on urban space and urban mobile life: How, with the implementation of an autonomous bus system in Aalborg East, is a renewed urban infrastructure co-produced in the mutual imbrications of city, people and technology? How does the autonomous bus system reconfigure, and is reconfigured by, the existing urban infrastructure? What are impacts on sociological issues including inclusion, acceptance, perceived safety and more.
What is the main role in ART-Forum?
Aalborg University will provide research support on the impacts of application of automated technology in spatial environments as well as scenario-building of automated futures and their repercussions to cities and communities. AAU evaluates and analyses the test of autonomous busses in Aalborg, Denmark, and connects this case to ART-Forum's data, reflections and policy development on supporting sustainable transport systems and quality of life in communities.
