December 13, 2016 – Modeling and Analysis of an Autonomous Mobility on Demand System

Date: December 13, 2016

Presenter: Ms. Katarzyna Anna MARCZUK

Supervisor: Prof. Emilio FRAZZOLI (MIT)

 

This mass use of motor vehicles led to some unforeseen consequences in terms of traffic congestion, pollution, safety and climate change. Growth in the global transportation is likely to further
exacerbate current problems, especially in densely populated urban areas. We need a disruptive ideas and technology in transportation, which could transform current mobility patterns. In this talk we consider a new mode of urban transportation, which is Autonomous Mobility on Demand (AMOD). AMOD consists of a fleet of light-weight electric and self-driving vehicles, which are available on-demand. We focus on the issues related to the fleet management of autonomous mobility on demand systems.
