We believe that the combination of energy efficient vehicle technology, together with the possibilities optimized fleets of autonomous vehicles have the possibility to substantially increase the energy efficiency of our transport systems. By taking advantage of new patterns of use, and of new business models we believe that the transport patterns may change fundamentally, from privately owned and operated fossil-fueled vehicles to transport services delivered by fleets of operator owned, autonomous vehicles tailored to demand patterns. The goal of this project is to build a platform for future research by investigating which aspects of these new technologies are crucial for understanding the system wide potential, and where possible quantify this potential in terms of costs, revenues and other effects.
