  • Routing and Task Allocation for Massive Smart-Mobility

    Tue, Aug 25, 2020 @ 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Speaker: Dr. Kril Solovey, Stanford University

    Talk Title: Routing and Task Allocation for Massive Smart-Mobility

    Abstract: Smart mobility holds the promise for transforming our lives with efficient, sustainable, and equitable urban transportation through the incorporation of novel technologies such as the Internet of Things and autonomous vehicles. However, to reap those rewards we must develop control algorithms capable of tackling massive scenarios, while at the same time accounting for their societal impact in terms of congestion, pollution, and fairness, to mention just a few criteria.

    In this talk, I will present recent developments in algorithmic design for massive smart-mobility systems in two key areas. First, I will describe an efficient framework for routing fleets of autonomous vehicles while accounting for congestion effects. Then, I will present an approach for multi-drone delivery across broad urban areas, with the end goal of reducing delivery times and mitigating congestion effects of traditional ground-delivery services. A distinguishing feature of the approach is that drones can extend their limited flight range by hitchhiking on public-transit vehicles. In addition to the algorithmic aspects of the two settings, I will discuss the broad implications of such systems to society and highlight directions for future research.

    Biography: I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Stanford University, working with Marco Pavone. I obtained a PhD in Computer Science from Tel Aviv University, where I was advised by Dan Halperin.

    My research interests lie at the interface of computer science, robotics, and transportation sciences. I pursue deeper insights into the structural properties of fundamental problems in robotics and transportation, for the design of practical algorithmic approaches. My most recent research focuses
    on multirobot systems and their application in smart mobility, with an emphasis on societal aspects.

    For my work I received multiple awards, including the Clore Scholars and Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellowships, best paper awards and nominations ( 1, 2, 3, 4, 5), and teaching awards. In addition to my academic interests, I take pleasure in being outdoors (mountain biking and hiking), traveling around the world, and enjoy food, cooking, music, books, and meditation.
