Shared Mobility and Automated Vehicles
Responding to socio-technical changes and pandemics
Shared vehicles are a key part of any future intelligent and clean transport system, as they allow for the sharing and efficient use of transport resources and fuel. Shared mobility is therefore gaining increasing attention in private and public sectors.
Serving as a source of information on how best to shape shared vehicle systems of the future, this book contributes knowledge on key facets of shared mobility. It includes shared vehicle systems as well as shared automated vehicle systems. Themes covered in the book include policy and regulatory frameworks, planning, design, technology, demand and supply models, algorithms, operations, management, economic factors, business models, social equity, environmental impacts, and pandemic effects.
Shared Mobility and Automated Vehicles: Responding to socio-technical changes and pandemics comprehensively and systematically covers this increasingly important topic for an audience of researchers in academia and research institutes involved with intelligent transport systems and urban transport. The book is also a valuable resource for public policy analysts, planners, system designers, system level technology developers, consultants, and advanced students.
