Possibilities of User Exchanges of Transportation Supply in a Shared-Connected-Autonomous Future
R. Jayakrishnan, Ph.D.
Newer technologies and high market penetration of personal communication systems along with the advent of autonomous and shared-connected vehicle systems bring up many new possibilities for different paradigms of operation in transportation systems. Facilitated by peer-to-peer (P2P) communication, users in the future can consume transportation supply with more complete information on individual heterogeneity in utility satisfaction. Breaking the traditional First-Come-First-Served paradigms with P2P monetary exchanges to compensate for utility disparities can improve system and user-level efficiency. Car-sharing and ride-sharing are two of the more well-known systems of relevance. Autonomous vehicles bring up another dimension in terms of shared ownership as well. Collaborative negotiated consumption of other elements of transportation supply such as signal timings, and lane space are also conceivable. This presentation focuses on such new possibilities of operation in signal, lane usage, and ride-matching in shared-ride systems. Pricing and behavioral models that use economic concepts such as envy-freeness are introduced as a basis for such schemes to be user-driven and equitable, without system-level mandates.
Jayakrishnan, Ph.D., has been a faculty member in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of California Irvine since 1991. Dr. Jayakrishnan earned his BTech from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, in 1985 and his doctorate from the University of Texas at Austin. His research interests are in a variety of topics such as traffic flow theory and simulation, transportation systems analysis, network modeling, decision theory, intelligent transportation systems, and public transit design. He is a part of many editorial committees of journals such as the ASCE Journal of Transportation Engineering and Transportation Research series and has served in several professional committees and academic panels of the Federal Highway Administration, National Science Foundation, and the Transportation Research Board. He has been a visiting professor at Ajou University in S. Korea and the Amrita University in India. 24 Ph.D. students have graduated under his advice, with half of these students in faculty positions around the world. He has roughly 150 refereed publications to his credit.
