Walter Mérida discusses how high-tech data could speed transit buses, save fuel and time

Walter Merida, Director of the UBC Clean Energy Research Centre, and MECH prof was interviewed by the Vancouver Sun about the future of transit.

He said next-generation electric and hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles should be the next step for transit agencies to improve efficiency and sustainability, and utilizing the “Internet of Things” should also be a priority.

“The basic premise is that right now vehicles are already connected; already communicating with other vehicles, but the next logical step is, of course, the vehicles (getting) connected to the city’s infrastructure,” he said.
