Whitepaper: Autonomous driving – Dynamic scheduling for the autonomous public transportation era
This paper discusses the implementation of autonomous driving in public transportation and the impact this may have on passengers…
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 realise. 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 may be the segment leading the way of adopting the new technology.
The question this paper discusses is whether the implementation of autonomous driving in public transportation, mainly buses, will have a real substantial impact on passengers. Will taking the driver off the equation have any impact on how passengers use buses? Will public transportation become more “flexible”? And if so, what other technologies are needed to make it happen?
