Prof. Gonçalo H. A. Correia from TU Delft, Netherlands presented his lecture on Shared on-demand automated vehicles for first/last mile transit and beyond, as a part of EAI Distinguished lectures program.
In this talk, Prof. Correia outlined recent developments in research from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) on the usage of automated vehicles as part of public transport networks.
The research objectives, methods, and results are discussed in a critical perspective with the main goal of understanding what challenges we still face with understanding the role of automated driving as part of future urban transportation systems. Rather than giving final conclusions this presentation is meant to act as a spark for this much-needed discussion. The talk is particularly focused on the usage of AVs as first/last mile connection in transit trips, but it will also look at shared automated vehicles for door-to-door transport.
The honorable Distinguished lectures program serves as an inspiration featuring great talks by the world’s most prominent researchers. Let us introduce to you our featured world’s top speakers presenting a topic as our distinguished guest lecturers.
Gonçalo H. A. Correia is an Associate Professor at the Department of Transport & Planning at TU Delft, Netherlands. He is currently leading the hEAT lab (Research on Automated and Electric Transport). His main research interest is in the planning and operations of transport systems in urban environments with the objective of sustainable development. At TU Delft he is looking at the impacts of automated driving and electric vehicles on mobility and urban development.
