  author={Paolo Santi and Giovanni Resta and Michael Szell and Stanislav Sobolevsky and Steven H. Strogatz and Carlo Ratti},
Taxi services are a vital part of urban transportation, and a major contributor to traffic congestion and air pollution causing substantial adverse effects on human health1, 2. Sharing taxi trips is a possible way of reducing the negative impact of taxi services on cities3, but this comes at the expense of passenger discomfort in terms of a longer travel time. Due to computational challenges, taxi sharing has traditionally been approached on small scales4, 5, such as within airport perimeters6… Expand
Shared public transport within a physical internet framework: Reviews, conceptualization and expected challenges under COVID-19 pandemic
Abstract Traffic congestion, dominated by private mobility, reveals not only negative impacts on road safety and the environment, but also on community cohesion. With the globalExpand
Network Lasso Optimization For Smart City Ride Share Prediction
A machine learning enabled ride sharing system is proposed that can learn from historical data to infer and predict on new ride share opportunities manifested in real time ride requests and an empirical evaluation on real and simulated data is provided that validates the method. Expand
An Application of Network Lasso Optimization For Ride Sharing Prediction
An application of a robust and scalable unified optimization framework called Network Lasso that uses the Alternate Direction Method of Multipliers (ADMM) optimization for learning and dynamic prediction is proposed within the ride sharing case-study. Expand
Exploring Traffic Dynamics in Urban Environments Using Vector‐Valued Functions
An efficient traffic model is proposed to derive speed and direction information from New York City (NYC) taxi trips, and it is shown that it provides reliable estimates. Expand
Money on the Move: Big Data of Bank Card Transactions as the New Proxy for Human Mobility Patterns and Regional Delineation. The Case of Residents and Foreign Visitors in Spain
A novel, consistent way of constructing mobility networks using transactional data, a way transposable to a variety of other datasets is proposed, and a surprisingly consistent trend is found between the distance from a given country to Spain, and the mobility characteristics of visitors coming from this country.

Data Driven Analysis of the Potentials of Dynamic Ride Pooling
This paper adopts a data-driven approach and uses an extensive ride-request data set from the real world to evaluate the dynamic ride pooling method, and shows that close to 50% of all ride requests can be pooled. Expand
Non-myopic Relocation of Idle Mobility-on-Demand Vehicles as a Dynamic Location-Allocation-Queueing Problem
Operation of on-demand services like taxis, dynamic ridesharing services, or vehicle sharing depends significantly on the positioning of idle vehicles to anticipate future demand and operationalExpand
Multi-agent simulation for planning and designing new shared mobility services
An agent-based model fed with GIS data is used to explore different system configurations of a specific type of DRST service, and to estimate the transport demand and supply variables that make the service feasible and convenient. Expand
Scaling of City Attractiveness for Foreign Visitors through Big Data of Human Economical and Social Media Activity
This paper uses big data created by three different aspects of this activity in Spain for quantifying city attractiveness for foreign visitors in Spain to find a strong super linear scaling law of city attractiveness with its population size. Expand
Survey and empirical evaluation of nonhomogeneous arrival process models with taxi data
Summary Arrival processes are important inputs to many transportation system functions, such as vehicle prepositioning, taxi dispatch, bus holding strategies, and dynamic pricing. We conduct aExpand
