PRT is a futuristic on demand transportation mode that uses driverless vehicle to transport people. Unfortunately, this mode of transport can result in a large amount of wasted energy due to the empty vehicle's movement. In this paper, four different management strategies for empty vehicle's movement will be presented. The impact of each strategy on the(More)
This paper compares two valid mathematical formulations for solving a routing problem related to Personal Rapid Transit (PRT). The PRT is an innovative automated transportation system that provides an on-demand transportation service for its users. This is made possible by the use of small electric driverless vehicles. Our objective is to determine the(More)
A Personal Rapid Transit system is a public transportation mean that uses small, computer guided vehicles running on dedicated guideways for moving passengers to their desired destination. Vehicles in this system move only ondemand of passengers. Consequently, the system results on a high level of empty vehicle displacement. In this paper, we focus on(More)
Road transportation tools are a major contributor to carbon emissions. Reducing the impact of these emissions on the environment requires an understanding of the environmental dimension in route planning and fleet management strategies of transportation tools. On the other hand, on-demand transportation systems are an advanced form of public transportation(More)
To provide sustainable and efficient urban logistics and transportation services, urban mobility tools are facing challenges on reducing carbon emission, waiting time for passengers and transit time. The emergence of many new intelligent and electric transportation system offers many new possible solutions to achieve urban sustainability. This paper(More)
