Recently, Team of Prof. Simon Hu, Assistant Professor of ZJUI, has been successively supported by two projects of Zhejiang University. Both projects, ‘demand forecasting and management of ride-sourcing fleet for smart cities’ and ‘Mobility and Logistics in the Era of the Coronavirus Pandemic’.
Mobility and Logistics in the Era of the Coronavirus Pandemic
Zhejiang University-University of Sydney International cooperation seed fund project
The program will develop theories, methods, and models to better understand the underlying relations between the social and economic dimensions of mobility and logistics on one hand and the spread of the virus on the other hand. Such advancement contributes to the development of more resilient mobility and logistics systems. Meanwhile, the project will be focused on the idea of Autonomous Mobile Lockers (AML) to support couriers in the field.
This project will be led by Prof. Simon Hu. In University of Sydney, Prof. Michael GH Bell will be the leader of the project.
Demand forecasting and management of ride-sourcing fleet for smart cities
Zhejiang University Cross-discipline Pre Research Project
The project will jointly lead with Prof. Chao Wu from School of Public Affairs. The proposed project will tackle the problem of demand prediction and management for ride-sourcing services, and find innovative solutions to complement traditional public transport modes.
