Evaluating Resilience in Mixed-Autonomy Transportation Systems

Future deployments of autonomous vehicles raise questions on how the actions of such vehicles may affect transportation systems as a whole, including the human-driven vehicles with which they share the road. The project team proposes to build a model of how autonomous vehicles can affect such mixed-autonomy systems and in particular their resilience to traffic disruptions. The project team will validate their results with simulations on Pittsburgh data and derive policy recommendations for autonomous vehicle regulations.
