Models, Algorithms, and Evaluation for Autonomous Mobility-On-Demand Systems

Seminar | February 19 | 4-5 p.m. | 290 Hearst Memorial Mining Building


Marco Pavone, Assistant Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University

Institute of Transportation Studies


Abstract: In this talk I will discuss the operational and economic aspects of autonomous mobility-on-demand (AMoD) systems, a rapidly emerging mode of personal transportation wherein robotic, self-driving vehicles transport customers in a given environment. Specifically, I will discuss AMoD systems along three dimensions: (1) modeling -- analytical models capable of capturing the salient dynamic...   More >

Seminar | March 11 | 4-5 p.m. | 290 Hearst Memorial Mining Building


Kari Watkins, Assistant Professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology

Institute of Transportation Studies


In order to attract more choice riders, transit service must not only have a high level of service in terms of frequency and travel time but also must be reliable. Although transit agencies continuously work to improve on-time performance, such efforts often come at a substantial cost. One inexpensive way to combat the perception of unreliability from the user perspective is real-time transit...   More >

Han Cheng, PhD

Institute of Transportation Studies


In recent decades, public transportation’s role in mitigating climate change has received more attention. However, many current transit systems are not designed to reduce environmental impacts. In the U.S., the average energy intensity of transit buses is even higher than passenger cars due to the current low ridership rate of transit buses.
