Webinar – Planning and Operations of Mobility On-Demand

October 22, 2020 13.30 - 15.00 h

On 22 October 2020, TRAIL PhD researcher Jishnu Narayan will defend his PhD thesis entitled “Design and Analysis of On-Demand Mobility Systems” 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 ”Planning and Operations of Mobility On-Demand”. The emergence of a plethora of on-demand services – ranging from platform-based ride-pooling (e.g. UberPool) to flexible public transport fleets – is currently disrupting the urban mobility landscape. Their unique characteristics require the development of new methods, tools and empirical knowledge on their dynamics and demand characteristics in order to support their planning and operations. What is the contribution of ride-pooling to congestion? What is the demand for shared mobility? How to design mobility on demand systems at scale? Some answers to these questions will be presented in this seminar by experts in the field of traffic flow theory, AI for transportation and transport system modelling. They will present recent developments pertaining to the incorporation of these modes into network-wide traffic assessment, the estimation of latent demand and their integration into transport simulation and optimization models.
