The trade-off between virtual and physical activities during the first COVID-19 lockdown
Based on empirical data collected from Italy, Sweden, India and few more others, we found that the external restrictions and personal characteristics are the driving factors of the changes in ones' daily trips. However, the estimation results do not show a strong correlation between the countries' restriction policy and the respondents' likelihood to adopt the new and online-based behaviours for any of the activities after the restriction period. The article can be seen in here.

When and why do people choose automated buses over conventional buses?
This study examines travellers’ preferences for automated buses compared to conventional buses, using a context-dependent stated choice experiment. It examines the effects of context variables—such as trip purpose, distance to destination, time of day, weather conditions, and travel companion. The results indicate that the influence of choice attributes does not vary much when choosing to use automated buses or choosing to use conventional buses. That is sad, the context variables matters on travel mode choice. The article can be seen here.
