Book Description :

The autonomous vehicle is predicted to change the paradigm of passenger mobility and dreamful visions have been very present in the media. Promoted by companies and governments, the new technology is said to make mobility safer and more environmentally friendly. But the reports are onesided. There is a limited amount of research on the potential downsides of the autonomous vehicle, particularly at the system level. Also, existing research mostly uses data and examples from the Western world. This qualitative study questions if the autonomous vehicle is truly sustainable. It identifies sustainability risks and opportunities for urban mobility systems in China which result from the implementation of autonomous vehicles. Factors with influence on the future mobility system are identified, analyzed and combined to four distinct emerging mobility systems: Radical ownership-based system, evolutionary ownership-based system, shared mobility system and public transportation system. Through expert interviews, the emerging mobility systems are assessed along twelve sustainability indicators. The results reveal that (1) when it comes to sustainability the future of the autonomous vehicle does not look as bright as the ubiquitous dream promises, (2) the radical ownership-based system, with a high level of autonomy and vehicle ownership rate, produces the biggest sustainability risks while the shared mobility system produces the biggest sustainability opportunities, and (3) both the direction and the magnitude of the sustainability impact strongly depends on the rebound effect which is not yet understood well-enough to design rebound-proof strategies for the future.

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,3, University of applied sciences, Munich, language: English, abstract: The automotive industry is facing the biggest changes in its more than 100 years of existence. At the end of this decade, the first electric vehicle is going to enter the mass market that can compete on product features, comfort and price with the internal combustion engines. People keep moving into urban areas. The requirements toward future mobility increase. Some countries already decided to prefer electric vehicles to conventional cars. Profits will shift to other markets or segments. Incumbents must align their current strategies to keep their market share in the future and participate in future profit pools of the automotive industry. BMW and Tesla have different strategic approaches to the upcoming changes in the industry. BMW, as many other OEMs, is aware of future challenges and disruptive forces and has much more resources to manage the required investments in R&D than smaller start-ups. However, disruptive forces come from lower functionality and low-cost products that are usually overlooked by dominant firms in an industry. This research analyzes the two automotive companies BMW and Tesla by using the common strategy analysis tools. First, the firms’ external environment is analyzed by using the PESTEL analysis, describing relevant trends that affect the strategic decision of the two companies. An industry overview with future projections is provided. Secondly, an internal analysis is performed. SWOT analysis and the VRIO framework form the basis to define the strengths, weaknesses, unique recourses and capabilities of BMW and Tesla. The conclusion provides an overall discussion of the most important findings emerging from the analysis with regard to the business operations and the existing business models of the two car manufacturers. Furthermore, important implications for the adaption and adjustment processes are discussed.

Book Description :

This book presents a comprehensive coverage of the five fundamental yet intertwined pillars paving the road towards the future of connected autonomous electric vehicles and smart cities. The connectivity pillar covers all the latest advancements and various technologies on vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications/networking and vehicular cloud computing, with special emphasis on their role towards vehicle autonomy and smart cities applications. On the other hand, the autonomy track focuses on the different efforts to improve vehicle spatiotemporal perception of its surroundings using multiple sensors and different perception technologies. Since most of CAVs are expected to run on electric power, studies on their electrification technologies, satisfaction of their charging demands, interactions with the grid, and the reliance of these components on their connectivity and autonomy, is the third pillar that this book covers. On the smart services side, the book highlights the game-changing roles CAV will play in future mobility services and intelligent transportation systems. The book also details the ground-breaking directions exploiting CAVs in broad spectrum of smart cities applications. Example of such revolutionary applications are autonomous mobility on-demand services with integration to public transit, smart homes, and buildings. The fifth and final pillar involves the illustration of security mechanisms, innovative business models, market opportunities, and societal/economic impacts resulting from the soon-to-be-deployed CAVs. This book contains an archival collection of top quality, cutting-edge and multidisciplinary research on connected autonomous electric vehicles and smart cities. The book is an authoritative reference for smart city decision makers, automotive manufacturers, utility operators, smart-mobility service providers, telecom operators, communications engineers, power engineers, vehicle charging providers, university professors, researchers, and students who would like to learn more about the advances in CAEVs connectivity, autonomy, electrification, security, and integration into smart cities and intelligent transportation systems.

Book Description :

This thesis studies the complications and issues that arise in the future when the use of the autonomous vehicle becomes mainstream and more widespread in the city. The autonomous vehicle is a car that can control itself without human intervention. As opposed to the conventional car, which is parked 95% of the day; the self-driving, autonomous vehicle is in constant motion during most of day and rests during the night. This major shift in vehicular will no doubt raise questions regarding the future typologies of parking infrastructure. This thesis will argue that this new type of automotive system requires a new type of parking infrastructure that will be able to serve as a hub for autonomous vehicles while informing a new relationship between humans and machines.

Book Description :

Society is experiencing the initial stages of a technological revolution that promises to disrupt urban transportation as known today and induce behavioral and social changes. The main factors guiding the transformation of urban mobility are the growth of Information and Communication Technology (ICT)-enabled transportation services and the development of autonomous vehicle (AV) technologies. While the use of ICTs and vehicular automation are expected to provide direct road capacity improvements due to the real-time provision of traffic information, crash reductions, and platooning capabilities, these gains may be offset by latent demand effects. That is, the increase in level of service may actually result in the generation of more trips and escalation of vehicle miles traveled. In this sense, proactive planning and policy guided towards promoting the use of shared vehicles and pooled rides are important to minimize possible negative externalities of automation. The current dissertation provides initial guidance to such planning by examining individuals’ preferences toward the adoption of current and future mobility services and technologies. A research framework containing four independent but related analysis components is developed to allow a comprehensive investigation of travelers’ characteristics and behaviors associated with ride-hailing use and preferences regarding AVs. Empirical analyses are conducted using advanced econometric techniques applied to different types of data from three different cities. The results of the empirical analyses are compared and implications to transportation planning and policy are discussed. The results from the analyses undertaken in the dissertation show that, from a behavioral perspective, a service-based transportation future where people predominantly travel using shared vehicles and pooled rides instead of their own vehicles is on its way but still distant. A complex combination of actions is required to promote the use of shared services both today and in an AV future. Among these actions, we identify the need for campaigns to (a) increase technology awareness among older individuals and individuals from lower income households, and (b) reduce privacy-sensitivity among non-Hispanic Whites and millennials. Such efforts should also be complemented by a decrease in service fares and urban densification. The results also suggest the need to promote policies and integrated multi-modal systems that discourage individuals from substituting the use of active and public transit modes by ride-hailing and AV-based services. Finally, we observe that individuals seem to be less sensitive to the presence of strangers in a commute trip than in a leisure trip, but the sensitivity to time is the opposite. The implications of these results are that pooled services may have a large market penetration potential for commute trips as long as operated efficiently with minimal detour and pick-up/drop-off delays.

Book Description :

This book takes a look at fully automated, autonomous vehicles and discusses many open questions: How can autonomous vehicles be integrated into the current transportation system with diverse users and human drivers? Where do automated vehicles fall under current legal frameworks? What risks are associated with automation and how will society respond to these risks? How will the marketplace react to automated vehicles and what changes may be necessary for companies? Experts from Germany and the United States define key societal, engineering, and mobility issues related to the automation of vehicles. They discuss the decisions programmers of automated vehicles must make to enable vehicles to perceive their environment, interact with other road users, and choose actions that may have ethical consequences. The authors further identify expectations and concerns that will form the basis for individual and societal acceptance of autonomous driving. While the safety benefits of such vehicles are tremendous, the authors demonstrate that these benefits will only be achieved if vehicles have an appropriate safety concept at the heart of their design. Realizing the potential of automated vehicles to reorganize traffic and transform mobility of people and goods requires similar care in the design of vehicles and networks. By covering all of these topics, the book aims to provide a current, comprehensive, and scientifically sound treatment of the emerging field of “autonomous driving".

Book Description :

Driverless cars are the future. That is what the tech giants, the auto industry and even the government want us to think. Almost daily there are media stories about how we will soon all be able to rip up our driving licences, sit in the back seat and let the car take us around. But is this really going to happen? Christian Wolmar has dug behind the hype and found a very different story. We are nowhere near this driverless utopia. Indeed it may prove to be impossible to reach. And even if it were achievable, does anyone want it? Far from reducing traffic and pollution, millions of zombie cars on the roads would make them worse. Wolmar looks at the technical and other difficulties that make this driverless future a very uncertain proposition. He finds that it is the tech companies and the auto manufacturers who are desperate to get us out of the driving seat, and argues that far from making the roads safer, driverless cars may well make them more dangerous. This entertaining polemic sets out the many technical, legal and moral problems that obstruct the path to a driverless future, and debunks many of the myths around that future’s purported benefits.

Book Description :

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) have been heralded as the key to unlock a shared mobility future where transportation is more efficient, convenient, and cheaper. However, the AV utopia can only come to fruition if the majority of users trust that autonomous mobility-on-demand (AMoD) systems are on a par with owning a vehicle in terms of service quality. Once the perception of quality is highly subjective, we propose a more personalized approach to on-demand mobility, in which users are segmented into service quality classes. These classes comprise minimum requirements regarding responsiveness and privacy, allowing us to model a series of user profiles formalized using strict service quality contracts. By honoring these contracts, providers can build users' trust and gain their loyalty, which on a grander scheme can contribute to a faster transition to a shared mobility future. This thesis presents a series of strategies to guaranteeing service quality throughout operational scenarios arising in the timeline of AV technology deployment. First, a precondition to providing service quality in autonomous transportation is safety. During a transition phase to full automation, AV operation will likely be restricted to areas where safe operations are guaranteed, leading to the formation of hybrid street networks comprised of autonomous and non-autonomous vehicle zones. In this setting, meeting user service quality expectations is primarily a matter of coverage, once mobility services will have to access both AV-ready and not AV-ready areas. Accordingly, this thesis proposes solutions to overcome the challenges entailed by such a transition scenario, where infrastructures, regulatory measures, and AV technology are gradually evolving. Then, assuming that widespread automated driving is the new status quo, we set out to model rich autonomous transportation scenarios comprised of heterogeneous users and vehicles. Central to our analysis is finding an adequate trade
