Prof. Carlos Lima Azevedo gave a presentation at the Autonomous and Connected Transportation Systems Workshop, held on 20 September 2020 as part of the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Conference, entitled What about demand? Evaluating automated mobility-on-demand in different urban typologies via integrated demand-supply simulation.

In a series of recent studies, we have developed and showcased a framework for analysis of systemic impacts of future automated mobility on-demand (AMoD). We build on prior work in classifying the world’s cities into 12 urban typologies that represent distinct land-use and behavior characteristics and in building a simulation prototype city representative of a given typology. Prototypes were then modelled in a state-of-the-art integrated demand microsimulation and supply mesoscopic and fleet management simulation. We showcase the impacts on demand, congestion, energy and emissions across the entire transportation system for different AMoD implementation policies. The urban form and demand characteristics of the different typologies will ultimately affect the efficiency of different AMoD implementations.
