CASUS Institute Seminar, Charlotte Lotze, cfaed, TU Dresden, Germany

Charlotte is a PhD student in the group of Prof. Marc Timme, Chair of Network Dynamics at the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) at TU Dresden. Her latest publication can be found in the open-access journal “New Journal of Physics”.

Ridepooling – the bundling of simultaneous trips of several people in one vehicle – may help to reduce the carbon footprint of human mobility. However, the complex collective dynamics pose a challenge when predicting the efficiency and sustainability of ride sharing systems.

In her talk, Charlotte will introduce a system parameter and she will analytically derive that it predicts the ecological sustainability of ridepooling services from mean field quantities alone. In addition, she shows this both for a simple toy model as well as for real data.
