Novel Technology to Quantify the Benefits of Ridesharing for Policy Makers and Travellers

Novel AI ridesharing technology (object of a filed patent available for licensing as part of the technological offer of the CSIC) providing computational tools for policy makers concerned with shared mobility, that allows to estimate the expected societal benefits of ridesharing from existing travellers’ data records.

Policy makers and stakeholders can leverage on our technology to come up with action plans aimed at achieving target societal impacts within some planning horizon. Our technology has been successfully tested on real-world data from Manhattan, NY. The results of our study, published in the prestigious journal IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems, are also accessible via our ridesharing simulation web-application (link).
