New generation mobility services – new modelling and planning paradigms?
On 2 April 2020, TRAIL PhD researcher Konstanze Winter will defend her PhD thesis “Providing Public Transport by Self-Driving Vehicles User Preferences, Fleet Operation, and Parking Management” at Delft University of Technology. The defence is public, and you are cordially invited to join.
On the occasion of this public defence, TRAIL and TU Delft have set up a seminar on ”New generation mobility services – new modelling and planning paradigms?”. New mobility services that leverage on the shared economy and platform economics already disrupt the mobility landscape. This trend is expected to be exacerbated by further developments and deployments of self-driving vehicles. These developments offer opportunities as well as pose threats for transport planning and policy making. The assessment of their adoption, effects and ultimately the assessment of alternative strategies calls for the development of new concepts, methods and tools. In this seminar, experts in the field will share methodological, modelling advancements and challenge fundamental convictions related to two-sided ride-sharing platforms, mobility as a service and shared autonomous fleets.
