Assistant Professor
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
University of Michigan

Abstract: The future of transportation lies at the intersection of two emerging trends, namely, the sharing economy and connected and automated vehicle technology. This talk will focus on two examples of how these technologies can enhance mobility in transportation systems. Specifically, the talk will discuss peer-to-peer ridesharing systems and wireless transfer of power between peer electric vehicles.
