Self-driving vehicles and public transport – opportunities and barriers
To understand the system level effects of automation technology on the transport system and contribute to SLL's scenario toolbox used when evaluating different investments e.g. new subway lines.
A set of different scenarios are developed in cooperation with SLL exploring the future of both the private cars (e.g. cheap taxi services) and public transport (e.g. first/last mile services). The scenarios are modelled using SLL's Sampers / Emme / Visum - model and indicators such as market share, congestion, energy use and vehicle kilometers traveled are investigated to provide a holistic perspective.
The project is funded by Region Stockholm (SLL).
