As Head of Sales Europe, Luc is responsible for helping public and private mobility service providers find optimized solutions for new and existing transportation networks. Luc is a renowned expert and frequent speaker on technology for on-demand driverless and human-driven mobility systems. He has worked with the region’s largest public transit operators on the majority of the autonomous shuttle fleets deployed to date in Europe. Prior to joining Bestmile, Luc held executive positions in innovative international companies in France, the United States, and Switzerland and has been instrumental in their growth and acquisition by market leaders such as Red Hat or App Dynamics.
- June 11: Fifty shades of public transport
Simulation-based on-demand service design using Chicago taxi dataThis poster will present the first realistic simulation of on-demand mobility services with extensive KPI-based analysis within well-defined service typologies. It will show how sophisticated matching, dispatching, and routing algorithms can be tailored to improve fleet utilization, passenger service levels, or a weighted combination of both. Existing literature on mobility service design and simulation will be reviewed. Then the poster will describe the design and analysis of micro-transit, ride sharing, and shuttle on-demand mobility services in the City of Chicago as examples of how planners can use simulation to optimize service performance before deployment to reduce risks of failure.
