Scan and Review of Autonomous Shuttle Operations and Other Personal Transportation Options Affecting Autonomous Transit Viability

The objectives of this research project are as follows: (1) Conduct a scan of active practice based on interviews with national and international experts and stakeholders, and a thorough review of the literature. The research team will reach out to a diverse group of experts to solicit their opinions on what is coming regarding personal mobility-focused AV and the use cases for transit services. The study team will also engage stakeholders, review and critically evaluate the development of AV technologies, their planned deployment in Florida and nationwide, their potential to affect existing modes and options, and their potential to provide reliable and safe transit service. (2) Based on the scan, literature, and discussions with experts and other stakeholders, assess advanced technology-based transit options such as AV shuttles, mobility on demand, ridesharing and micromobility for their advantages and disadvantages.
