Presentation: Towards the “robo-taxi” mobility model: expected figures from real data analysis
Prof. Savaresi will briefly present a recent research activity, aimed at understanding the expected figures (efficiency, number of “robo-taxi” cars, actual usage, expected waiting time, expected economics, and more) for the future “robo-taxi” mobility model. The research is fully based on real data, picturing the current mobility behavior of private cars. Large and medium city case studies will be presented.
