Why did we select this research?
Feasibility of using agent-based simulation tools to model the impacts of shared autonomous vehicles.
- Incorporating shared autonomous cars can significantly reduce the total number of vehicles required to meet the transport needs of a community.
- Decreased the parking requirements which would free up this space for other purposes.
- Likely to be some negative impacts such as increased total km of travel, but these were less significant and can potentially be mitigated if all future self-driving vehicles are electric.
