SPOTLIGHT - Dr. Moe Vazifeh: Adaviv CTO's work on fleet optimization makes the cover story in Nature

Updated: Aug 8

The Minimum Fleet Network model developed by the Senseable City Lab could reduce the taxi fleet size by 40%. Currently, active taxis are circling to look for someone to pick up when they are not driving a passenger to destination. While each driver seeks to reduce this empty time individually, taxis still travel without serving passengers for about 40% of their time. In the Minimum Fleet Network model, this circling is substantially reduced, and each active taxi operates in one of two possible modes:
