The Future of Mobility Workshop Series

The NYU Rudin Center for Transportation specializes in policy related to the future of urban mobility. In the Future of Mobility workshops, the NYU Rudin Center will convene subject matter experts and government leaders. During the workshop, speakers and participants will identify policy initiatives and needs for seamless, technology-enabled urban travel.

Development of an Open Source Multi-Agent Virtual Simulation Test Bed for Evaluating Emerging Transportation Technologies and Policies

In previous years, the research team has developed and calibrated a base model implemented in MATSim and SUMO. This virtual testbed simulates an 8-million-person population and includes cars, trains, bus, bikeshare, taxi, and other for-hire vehicles calibrated to the year 2016. The team is building the architecture to host this virtual test bed and developing system design and user guide documentation.

Learning to Drive Autonomously

Autonomous vehicles (AV) and connected vehicles (CV) technology has been much of the focus of transportation industry lately, and they will likely make a vast impact on the future of transportation systems. This project will combine AV and CV technologies for connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) to reduce congestion and improve network performance and safety by developing new tools and methods using reinforcement learning and nonlinear and optimal control techniques.
