Towards a Smart, Safe, and Sustainable Sidewalk: A Quantitative Analysis on How Sidewalk Infrastructure Affect Personal Delivery Devices

The study team aims to investigate how the sidewalk infrastructure affects Person Delivery Devices (PDDs) and residents. To this end, the team plans to collect data of the sidewalk ecosystem in Pittsburgh using a robot and establish a multi-model simulator for PDDs at the city scale. The study team will analyze PDD's disparate impact on different communities in simulation and explore pricing mechanisms to mitigate the disparate impact and promote equity. The project is of great interest to both the government and industry.
