This project measures sidewalk, curb ramp, and curb cut quality data to evaluate pedestrian infrastructure quality. The project considers accessible, active travel for people with physical disabilities.
Using Atlanta’s MARTA rail system as a case study, this thesis will assess the feasibility of integrating autonomous transit vehicles (transit AVs) into the public transportation system as a first-mile and last-mile solution for riders.
The research team will employ a case study analysis approach to assess the costs and benefits of plug-in electric vehicle conversion for an array of commercial fleets operated in the Atlanta metro area.
In this research, the team will implement the Frank-Wolfe algorithm and dynamic traffic assignment model with the same travel demand model input data to generate two sets of travel paths and assess the energy use and emissions impacts of these two distinctly different traffic assignment algorithms.
