    Author : François Poinsignon; [2022]
    Keywords : Public Transport; Autonomous Vehicles; Shared Autonomous Fleets; Demand Responsive Transit; Traffic Simulation; Transport Modelling; Future Mobility;

    Abstract : Autonomous vehicles are predicted to disrupt the current landscape of urban mobility.Many studies have investigated how autonomous vehicles, either operated as a serviceor as private cars, could compete against public transport and even replace it. READ MORE

  2. 2. Developing A Network Algorithm for Demand Responsive Transit Service in A Rural Area of Sweden

    University essay from KTH/Transportplanering

    Author : Benny Lam; Peng Shiyi; [2021]
    Keywords : DRT service in rural areas; network algorithm; heuristics algorithm; cost function; Anropstyrd trafik på landsbygden; nätverksalgoritmen; heuristisk algoritm; kostnadsfunktion;

    Abstract : Based on the fact that accessibility in rural areas relies heavily on car traffic, call-driven traffic has been used in different regions to improve public transport usage in rural areas, while it has been difficult to maintain due to high maintenance and long waiting time. Over the past decade, a new demand response transit (DRT) service came into light, which combines with new technologies to provide a more attractive and efficient transport service. READ MORE

    Keywords : public transport · autonomous vehicles · demand responsive transport · future mobility · suburban areas · operation strategies · costs evaluation;

    Abstract : With the improvements of the vehicle technology related with connectivity, sharing, automation and electrification and as a solution to the problems that cities are facing, such as an intense population growth and pollution, there are new forms of mobility that are or will be created within the framework of the future mobility. In this context, the arrival of driverless autonomous vehicles will provoke an irreversible change supporting the implementation of new forms of mobility or improving the existent. READ MORE

  5. 5. Integration of freight transportation in demand responsive transport systems

    University essay from KTH/Transportplanering

    Author : Dominik Fuchs; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Demand-Responsive Transport (DRT) describes public transport modes, which do not run on a fixed schedule but the customers can order their trip including time windows, origin and destinations themselves. Especially for rural areas with lower demand for passengers, DRT systems seem to be suitable concepts. READ MORE
