Presentation: Dynamic Scheduling for the Autonomous Public Transportation Era
Autonomous driving is here. A few more technical enhancements, a little push on regulation, some more emphasis on education. But it’s coming, faster than we realize. However, with the introduction of this technology many tend to focus on the impact it will have on personal cars, where in fact public transportation could very well be the segment leading the way adopting the new technology. It is obvious that bus operators will benefit greatly from using the autonomous technology, as the cost of drivers will be reduced or eliminated. The bigger question is what impact it will have on passengers. Will taking the driver off the equation have any impact on how passengers use buses? And if so, what other technologies are needed to make it happen?
