Ebook: The future of mobility is here


During May 2020, Ubiwhere and TICE.PT have come together to discuss the future of mobility. In 3 webinars, we joined experts from different areas who focused on answering the questions raised by COVID-19 and what we can expect in the years to come.

Research centres and universities from across Europe have been working closely with different industry players as start-ups, SMEs and large organisations that offer commercial solutions for public transit, logistics or traffic management, ultimately to bring to market the results and innovations from research. Moreover, cities and regions also participate in these innovation initiatives to trial the solutions and understand what better works for the citizens needs.

With sustainability being such a top priority, taking into account the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the European Green Deal, we need to keep investing on the access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport for all, mainly the ones in vulnerable situations. We have to be able to look at mobility as a system and move towards holistic mobility management so that we can take care not only of the needs that we have today with the pandemic but also for future ones.

We need to always work towards improving people´s lives, understanding their specific needs, creating solutions and involving them in the process. By focusing on people´s needs, we can work on further improving road safety, enhancing shared mobility offers and expanding public transportation. Now and in the future, we have to keep developing quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient infrastructure (both for electric vehicles and autonomous mobility, as well as for efficient collective transit), to support both economic development and human well-being, by focusing on affordable and equitable access for all.

The focus shift from the private vehicles to the people will enable technology to have a global impact faster: information and communication technology (ICT) allows the digitalisation and rapid access to several pieces of information, such as vehicle classification and counting, emissions tracking and correlation, human needs and feedback assessment, as well as analysis of offer and demand. That’s where we can help.
