Autonomous vehicles (AV) have the potential to offer significant benefits when deployed for public transport. However, as they share the road infrastructure with existing public transport and other vehicles, cities must consider advances in road infrastructure additionally to advances in vehicle technology and intelligent transport systems (ITS). In this free webinar, we will highlight the necessary design changes to existing bus stops to accommodate AVs. To implement this, we leverage a microscopic traffic simulation model by PTV Vissim software. We will also discuss results that show the impact on traffic performance.
