Project title: Flexible Pods in Future Urban Mobility
Host Institution: Technical University of Munich (TUM)
Host Supervisor: Prof. Constantinos Antoniou
Co-host Institution: Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
Co-host Supervisor: Dr Carlos M. Lima Azevedo
Summary project: Flexible pods are autonomously driving vehicles providing door-to-door service and physically connect while travelling to allow enroute transfer. Use of the flexible pods directs towards an opportunity to improve travel time, travel cost and congestion. This project aims to model, implement, and analyse pods mobility in urban traffic to indicate whether this new mobility system can address urban mobility challenges.
