Pascal Van Hentenryck - Scalable On-demand Mobility Services
From Kathryn Gentilello on November 20th, 2018
The convergence of several technology enablers, including ubiquitous connectivity, autonomous vehicles, and sophisticated analytics, provides unique opportunities to fundamentally transform mobility in the next decade. Ride-sourcing services have already modernized taxi services but they have also increased congestion and widened inequalities in accessibility. This talk looks at mobility from a logistics and supply chain angle and presents novel on-demand mobility services that have the potential to be scalable, and sustainable, handling both the first/last mile problem and congestion. Case studies will also be presented.
