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)
Within the context of Smart Cities, Smart mobility aims at reducing road traffic, carbon emissions and total travel times of transportation tools. In this paper, we propose to investigate the capabilities of electric cars within the context of Smart Cities. We propose to reduce polluting gas emissions from road traffic in modern cities by integrating(More)
Alternative energy for oil as well as advanced technology are used to overcome problems related to public transportation system. In this context, Personal Rapid Transit system (PRT) are among the newest transportation mode that can overcome many of the public transit's problems. Unfortunately, this kind of transportation mode can result a large amount of(More)
Within the vehicle routing problem literature, the distance constrained vehicle routing problem (DCVRP) has its is importance due to its practical relevance of logistics operation. However, the DCVRP with the objective of minimizing the total traveling distance fails to meet the recent concerns about the environmental issues related to green logistics. This(More)
