Automated vehicles as a part of the public transport system
Automated vehicles can be utilised for public transport, e.g. in the legs between important public transport hubs and final destinations.
Experiments can help obtain more and better empirical data regarding the function of systems in various executions. There is already ample experience with point-to-point transport (shuttle services) across fixed routes with fixed stops, such as with automated metros and people movers. However, there is far less data regarding system performance of demand-driven systems with variable routes and stations as well as with systems that operate in partially mixed-traffic situations.
Experiments can provide insight into the system performance (operational travel speed, system capacity, response and wait times) and, depending on the system configuration, the degree of freedom for routing and the traffic conditions.
