Ride-hailing and ride-pooling: State of the art, future research directions, and the role of traffic simulation

Already today, on-demand mobility services such as Uber and Lyft in the USA, and Didi in China have taken over a noticeable share of the modal split. Furthermore, the market value assessment of these companies is now higher than the one of established vehicle producers, as they are considered to have a very high potential despite current losses with regard to autonomous driving. With the elimination of driver costs, it is expected that ride-hailing and ride-pooling can be offered at a substantially lower cost than today, generating a significant increase in demand. To understand the impact of such automated on-demand systems on future transportation systems, simulations are needed to evaluate both fleet efficiency and their interaction with the overall transportation system.
So far, the mutual effects of ride-hailing and ride-pooling as well as traffic flow have only been modeled in a simplified way. The effective coupling to microscopic traffic simulations like SUMO can be of great benefit here. Such simulation models are already valuable tools in studies on traffic control algorithms, up to the analysis of the effects of automated vehicles. In the context of ride-hailing and ride-pooling, these simulation models can additionally help to further understand traffic flow effects arising from the introduction of large-scale on-demand services. Corresponding impacts of such operations onto traffic states can then be modelled dynamically. Vice-versa, dynamic travel time estimations can be beneficial for the modelling of ride-hailing and ride-pooling operation. Furthermore, the impact of required empty trips due to repositioning or bundled passenger flows due to pooling in urban transportation networks is still poorly understood. In addition, microscopic simulations are needed to efficiently organize boarding and loading processes, detect bottlenecks, and identify any needed infrastructure at an early stage.
During the conference we are going to offer a virtual room to meet and talk. Move your avatar around to meet people, just make sure to have your mic and webcam on!
We are going to have a fun SUMO-related quiz using Menti. Join our Zoom meeting and have a smartphone/tablet ready at hand. Test your knowledge of SUMO and win the glorious and prestigious prize of attaching your name to an easter egg in “sumo-gui”.
