Driving innovation through the pursuit of automated shuttles
We believe in supporting innovative ideas from our employees. With our Greenlight program, our team was able to receive funding to help clients determine the feasibility of, and create a plan for, automated shuttle implementation in Tempe, Arizona.
One of our partners in this endeavor is Arizona State University (ASU), a founding partner of the Institute for Automated Mobility. An automated shuttle system is envisioned to provide an alternate mobility option at ASU’s Tempe campus, strengthen their commitment to innovation, and further their pursuit of integrating automated vehicles. The first step was to conduct a feasibility study for self-driving vehicle deployment on the Tempe campus.
We collected data and evaluated optimal vehicle routing that would serve a useful first/last mile scenario. We looked at site-specific constraints, reviewed stakeholder preferences and goals, and current capabilities of automation technology. With our understanding of the state-of-the-art automated shuttle technology and transit best practices, we generated and evaluated automated shuttle route alternatives. The study resulted in several feasible routes, each with a unique use-case.
