Abstract

The past five years have seen rapid development of plans and test pilots aimed at introducing connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) in public transport systems around the world. While self-driving technology is still being perfected, public transport authorities are increasingly interested in the ability to model and optimize the benefits of adding CAVs to existing multi-modal transport systems. Using a real-world scenario from the Leeds Metropolitan Area as a case study, we demonstrate an effective way of combining macro-level mobility simulations based on open data with global optimisation techniques to discover realistic optimal deployment strategies for CAVs. The macro-level mobility simulations are used to assess the quality of a potential multi-route CAV service by quantifying geographic accessibility improvements using an extended version of Dijkstra's algorithm on an abstract multi-modal transport network. The optimisations were carried out using several popular population-based optimisation algorithms that were combined with several routing strategies aimed at constructing the best routes by ordering stops in a realistic sequence.
