Naroa Coretti Sánchez

Naroa Coretti is a master's candidate in the City Science group. A mechanical engineer with a master's degree in industrial (mech.) engineering, Naroa's research is focused on future mobility modes.

One of her projects, the MIT Autonomous Bicycle Project,  explores how to transform bicycle-sharing systems to offer a more attractive and efficient solution for users. She is currently designing and building an autonomous bicycle that can be requested on-demand, will drive to the user, and then will behave as a regular bicycle during the journey before returning to autonomous mode to pick up its next rider. A bicycle on-demand mobility platform will solve some of the current challenges faced with bike-share programs, including redistribution, and in addition, it will incentivize increased use of shared lightweight transport.
