A little walk can make ridesharing a lot more efficient
Ridesharing can benefit from using pick-up and drop-off points and asking users to walk a small distance. Researchers at TU Delft have analyzed this by using a real dataset of 10.000 Manhattan taxi trips. They have published their results online in Transportation Research Part C.

Sarvesh Kolekar in various media
Self-driving cars can already do quite a bit, but driving as a human being requires something that algorithms cannot do very well: being insecure and careless. A new model that maps the mechanism behind human driving should change this.

A protocol for flexible social distancing strategies
Full and prolonged levels of lockdown are unsustainable in the long run. More flexible social distancing approaches are already being applied in many countries and regions, while the tools for decision-making are still ‘work in progress’. TU Delft researchers are using applied mathematics to propose a tool for local authorities that enables them to apply a faster and more flexible approach to social distancing.
