Why AMOD is an easier target, technically

Modified 2018-06-22 by Andrea Censi

  • Comparing the two visions:

    • Vision 2 - Your next car can drive by itself.
    • Vision 3 - Autonomous Mobility on Demand.
  • Technical advantages of AMOD:

    • I choose where and when to deliver the service.
    • I can have remote supervisors (1 supervisor: 50 cars).
    • I don’t have to worry about (mis)users of the system.
    • Every night, my cars come back to the garage (think, e.g., calibration).
    • My cars are always updated (Each car lasts ~200,000 miles = 2 years)

Social benefits of AMOD

Modified 2018-06-22 by Andrea Censi

  • Reduced accident fatalities

  • More livable cities

    • No need for parking spaces
    • Fewer cars to provide the same service.
  • City-level fleet management allows more efficient uses of resources.

    • You can plan service with demand.
    • City-level fleet coordination reduces traffic.
    • You can integrate with rail.
