Why did we select this research:
Metropolitan areas are full of challenges due to a fast-growing population, and hence any kind of vehicles (from bikes to cars to public transportation needs), increase. Moving from one point to another is a key feature of modern city life. Therefore, the traditional approach to mobility does no longer serve the purpose. As cities are getting smarter mobility needs to do so as well.
- Smart mobility as the only real solution to a (more) sustainable way of moving.
- Public mobility and infrastructure changes needed to adapt mobility to a smarter city (bicycle lanes, integrated traffic lights, restricted (or limited) traffic zones, columns to recharge electric vehicles, etc.
- Private and commercial vehicles (car-sharing initiatives). This point though highlights the still dependance on car ownership feeling.
- Infrastructure and policies supporting urban mobility.
- Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
