This paper presents Mobility-On-Demand (MoD) scenarios relying on lightweight autonomous and connected vehicles to ease commuting in large pedestrian areas and intermodal hubs. In particular, we discuss the case of the EPFL campus as an example of a large pedestrian area and the case of the main Zurich train station as an example of a large intermodal hub. These two scenarios help to investigate the potential benefits and the implementation challenges of innovative lightweight autonomous and connected vehicles combining indoor and outdoor modalities. They also highlight the need to further develop the integration of mobile apps and transportation means for a broader adoption of alternative commuting behaviors. A detailed review of the state of the art is included. It presents current initiatives and solutions related to MoD services.

Lane Change Scheduling for Autonomous Vehicles
Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Schmidt, Şenan Ece (2016-05-20)
The subject of this paper is the coordination of lane changes of autonomous vehicles on a two-lane road segment before reaching a given critical position. We first develop an algorithm that performs a lane change of a single vehicle in the shortest possible time. This algorithm is then applied iteratively in order to handle all lane changes required on the considered road segment while guaranteeing traffic safety. Various example scenarios illustrate the functionality of our algorithm.
Communication and coordination for urban intelligent transportation: architecture and algorithms
Atagoziev, Maksat; Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-2-10)
In the scope of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), the automation and coordination of connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) lane changes (LCs) have a strong impact on driving safety and traffic throughput. Accordingly, this thesis develops algorithms for the coordination of CAV LCs that are then used for controlling the traffic at intersections. First, this thesis focuses on the coordination of LCs of a group of CAVs to minimize the time when all LCs are completed, while keeping small inter-vehicle ...
Location–routing and synchronization problems in city logistics
Farham, Mohammad Saleh; Süral, Haldun; Department of Industrial Engineering (2020)
City logistics aims to improve urban freight transportation by considering the costs and benefits of public and private sectors, consolidating segmented freight shipments, and integrating the individual actors in a collaborative environment. This thesis studies network design problems in city logistics systems to address managerial challenges in urban freight transportation. We consider two network design schemes, namely the one and the two-echelon distribution networks, to formulate strategic and tactical ...
Tracking Reported Vehicles in Traffic Management and Information System using Intelligent Junctions
Elci, Atilla; RAHNAMA, BEHNAM; Amintabar, Amirhasan (2010-05-01)
This study highlights a security scenario involving vehicles in a Traffic Management and Information System (TMIS) network. TMIS and its nodal architecture, nicknamed Intelligent Junction (IJ), are summarized from our recent work. System design sets an example to a software architecture implementing autonomous semantic agents through semantic web services, junction-based sensor networks, local- and wide-area networking through wire/wireless integrated communication infrastructure. It is so construed as to p...
Public transport improvement policies : assessment of the role of route and fare integration, modal reorganization with special emphasis to İzmir case
Öncü, Mevlüde Ayça; Babalık, Ela; Department of Urban Policy Planning and Local Governments (2007)
Public transport improvement and new public transport management approaches are accepted as the most effective tools in order to cope with the urban transportation problem threatening sustainable urban life and efficient functioning of urban areas. The need for new solutions to replace, or support, costly new capacities created two new concepts at the two ends of the transportation phenomenon; Travel Demand Management (TDM) on the demand side and Transportation System Management (TSM) at the supply side. Th...
