Symbolbild - FuhrparkShared Mobility-on-Demand: from predictive routing to multi-objective fleet sizing

16.06.2021, 16:40 - 18:00

Dr. Javier Alonso-Mora - Associate Professor at the Cognitive Robotics department of the Delft University of Technology

We move towards an era of smart cities, where shared autonomous vehicles will provide efficient and safe on-demand transportation for all. In this talk, and building upon his seminal work on on-demand high-capacity ridesharing via dynamic trip-vehicle assignment, Dr. Alonso-Mora will give an overview of his recent work in this field. He will first analyze some of the sources of uncertainty present in ridesharing systems, followed by a discussion of methods for predictive routing that utilize a model of future demand. Secondly, he will discuss a multi-objective optimization that enables to design the required vehicle fleet accounting for the trade-off between quality of service and operation cost.
