Car- and Bike-sharing systems have dramatically altered mobility services in metropolitan areas in recent years. They improve flexibility and convenience for non-private car-based mobility. This transformation seems to be further revolutionized by the introduction of self-driving vehicles. Indeed, Autonomous Mobility-on-Demand (AMoD) systems are gaining a huge research interest as they allow to address conventional system problems such as fleet imbalance. In this context, we present our AuRa (Autonomous Rad) project which aims to develop an on-demand shared-use self-driving bikes service (OSABS). Unlike the AMoD systems with car fleets, the AuRa concept highly reduces space occupancy, energy consumption, and air pollution by leveraging bikes. It can be further integrated with public transportation. This work describes the AuRa system design from a logistical perspective. Furthermore, we represent this system with a conceptual model that can be used to develop an agent-based simulation model in Anylogic software.
