Multi-Class Management With Sub-Class Service for Autonomous Electric Mobility On-Demand Systems

This paper aims to resolve a clear and unrealistic limitation found in recent works that have proposed solutions to the massive demand for the autonomous electric mobility-on-demand (AEMoD) services. Namely, this paper will focus on the matched charge-to-trip only service by enabling sub-class service; i.e., allowing vehicles to serve customer classes with trips needing less charge. The paper proposes a multi-class management system with a new queuing model for one city zone, and then derives the stability conditions of the system. Proportions of vehicles from each class that will immediately serve customers with sub-class service or full/partial charge are modeled, and the maximum expected response time of the system is then minimized by optimizing these vehicle service decisions. The advantages of the new model are then compared with previously proposed schemes and non-optimized models through simulations.
