SMART URBAN MOBILITY

Are we ready for the latest advances in urban mobility?

#transport #cars #environmental sustainability

Would you go to the theatre in a driverless taxi? Would you share your car or travel to work on someone else's car? The new urban mobility environment is going to change everything... starting with the way we think.

Smart mobility.

We have used our cars as privately-owned vehicles for over half a century. In some very punctual cases we have lent our car to a member of our family or friend. However, traffic jams and contamination in large cities are a huge threat to the environment and to our current standard of living. Our transport culture must change, and it needs to change right now.

The success of shared services is announcing the change in model that is already having an impact on different urban transport systems. In upcoming years, privately-owned vehicles will start to disappear and give way to new mobility approaches, — public, private and shared — which we cannot even imagine today. The electric car, driverless cars, digitisation and the collaborative economy will have a huge impact on changing the mobility models in large cities.

A smart city is committed to reducing traffic jams and the environmental impact, as well as CO2 emissions and noise pollution. Examples of the most significant advances achieved are shown below:

MOBILITY IN SMART CITIES

Pedestrians

Many cities have created urban tolls that charge a fee to privately-owned vehicles entering the city during certain periods. What's the goal? To promote the use of public or shared transport.

Shared cars

This service allows citizens to rent cars for a specific period of time, which helps reduce the number of privately-owned vehicles and, as a result, the traffic and contamination levels.

Bicycles, the form
of transport of the future

The Bike-Friendly culture is in fashion: approximately 2,500 million people around the world use bicycles as the main means of transport. This improves our quality of life by reducing contamination and noise levels.

Smart mobility

The sensors and cameras installed around cities give drivers and pedestrians information about the traffic situation in real-time, with the purpose of achieving more fluid mobility.
