Characterizing Emerging Urban Transportation Modes Book Review:

The introduction of emerging transportation technologies, such as mobility-on-demand and shared modes, have caused disruptions in urban transportation systems. These services brought multiple challenges, including the lack of infrastructure, arbitrary pricing schemes, deficient operating rules and regulations, and safety concerns. Furthermore, the deployment of these technologies has increased the need and demand for improved management of the associated data. In particular, the volume of the collected information, the variability of data sources, the heterogeneous structure, and the inherent spatio-temporal nature highlight challenges for finding spatial and temporal relationships, dealing with computational complexity, and for the integration or fusion from various sources. This research work is based on the need for the implementation of models and methods for dealing with large-scale, diverse, and spatio-temporal datasets to adequately characterize emerging mobility technologies and their potential impacts on urban environments. Specifically, it assesses three main points: (1) the impact of emerging mobility modes on urban areas is still unknown, (2) it is not clear what is the effect of shared mobility services on public transit usage, (3) when available, the data may present several challenges. This dissertation designs and applies models and methods to evaluate emerging mobility services' impacts on different aspects of urban areas. The impacts in question are analyzed using four distinctive techniques based on advanced statistics and data analysis models and methods. These techniques are applied to several data sources describing ridesourcing (i.e., ride-hailing via transportation network companies or TNCs), microtransit (i.e., privately owned and operated shared transportation system that can have fixed or flexible routes and schedules), micromobility (e.g., bikesharing and dockless electric scooters or e-scooters), and public transit trips from Austin, Texas. The results of the analyses show that the current fare system and pricing strategies can lead to disparities in TNC driver earnings. Temporal and spatial demand variations can exacerbate search frictions, which can cause an overall market failure. The results suggest that new pricing strategies are required and that there is a need for pricing regulations. A further examination of the ridesourcing effect on the airport ground access using Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) showed that the average airport-accessing speed decreases in the presence of TNCs. The use of ITS data is proposed to support airport decision-making processes. Finally, this study analyzed the integration of shared modes with the public transit system. Shared modes can complement the public transportation systems (like bus, train, and air) and solve first-mile-last-mile (FMLM) accessibility issues. However, this study's results suggest that this integration is not yet happening for TNCs and microtransit modes. An analysis of the use of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) to introduce share modes in areas with low public transit demand suggests the service was mainly used for intrazonal trips and not for FMLM. Further analysis of the relationship between e-scooters and public transit was able to identify areas with potential e-scooter and bus interaction. The results suggest that future collaborations and PPPs should focus on integrating these mobility services into the public transit system

Energy and Environmental Contexts of Cities Transportation Systems and Emerging Vehicle Technologies Book Review:

This thesis is divided into two parts. The first evaluates the role of the built environment in life-cycle energy consumption, by comparing different neighborhood and city styles. Through a holistic modeling and accounting framework, this work identifies the largest energy-consuming sectors, among residential and commercial buildings, personal vehicles and transit trips, and supporting infrastructure (roads, sidewalks, parking lots, water pipes, street lighting). Life-cycle energy calculations include operational energy use (e.g., gasoline for vehicles, electricity and natural gas for buildings) and embodied energy used to produce materials and construct buildings and infrastructure. Case study neighborhoods in Austin, Texas, and larger-scale regional models suggest that building energy demands comprise around 50% of life-cycle energy demands, while transportation demands (from driving and infrastructure alike) contribute around 40%, across all cases. However, results also suggest that population density and average residential unit size play a major role in defining per-capita energy consumption. Operational demands made up about 90% of life-cycle energy demands, suggesting that v most urban energy savings can be obtained from reduced personal vehicle trips and more efficient vehicles and buildings. Case study comparisons suggest that neighborhoods and regions with greater density and higher share of multi-family housing units tend to reduce operational (and thus life-cycle) energy demands with less travel demand and decreased home and work energy use, per capita. The second part of this modeled plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) emissions impacts in Texas, by considering four possible vehicle adoption scenarios (where PEVs make up 1, 5, 10, and 25% of total passenger vehicles). The analysis anticipates PEV electricity demand and emissions rates, based on current Texas power grid data. Results indicate that PEV emissions depend significantly on which specific power plants are used to power the vehicles, but that PEVs' average per-mile emissions rates for NO[subscript x], PM, and CO2 are all likely to be lower than today's average passenger car, when today's average mix is used. Power produced from 100% coal plants could produce 14 times as much NO[subscript x], 3,200 times as much SO2, nearly 10 times as much CO2 and CO2eq, 2.5 times as much PM10, and VOCs, and nearly 80 times the NO2 compared to a grid with 100% natural gas plants.

Connected and Automated Vehicles Book Review:

Disruption in Transportation, as some experts say, is here; so is this book at this critical inflection point in the history of transportation planning, engineering, and operations. With a focus on improving safety and maximizing available systems to accommodate all modes of travel, this work brings together an array of topics and themes on transportation technologies under the banner of Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV). The emerging technology implementing entities, industry leaders, original equipment manufacturers, standard development organizations, researchers, and others are singularly focused on a global multilogue to promote Safety, Mobility, Environment, and Economic Development (SMEEd). These discussions are technologically interdisciplinary and procedurally cross-functional, hence the need for CAV: Developing Policies, Designing Programs, and Deploying Projects. This book is aimed at the policy-maker who wants to know the high-level detail; the planner who chooses to pursue the most efficient path to implementation; the professional engineer who needs to design a sustainable system; the practitioner who considers deployable frameworks; the project manager who oversees the system deployment; the private sector consultant who develops and delivers a CAV program; and the researcher who evaluates the project benefits and documents lessons learned. This book makes a business case for implementing CAV technologies to achieve SMEEd goals; presents the possibilities and challenges to deploying emerging technologies; identifies the institutional roles and responsibilities; and develops a policy framework for mainstreaming CAV. A comprehensive perspective on emerging technologies and CAV policies, planning, and practice A practical guide to support the development of a policy framework, business case, and justify funding A real-world experience-driven discussion with case studies, lessons learned, and road map creation A goal-oriented and practitioner-focused detail to draft, design, and deploy emerging technologies and CAV to achieve safety and mobility outcomes
