As congestion, high costs and environmental concerns make personal car ownership in cities an increasingly frustrating experience, and as technology begins to offer more attractive alternatives, we are seeing a shift away from individual modes of transport towards alternative mobility solutions that are consumed as a service.
Our economies and our lives depend on the efficient movement of goods; movement that is underpinned by complex transport and logistics chains. But, while delivering goods from producer to end user, transport and logistics systems are under increasing pressure to deliver greater efficiency, more sustainability and improved cost-effectiveness. A number of initiatives from ERTICO – ITS Europe are addressing these challenges and creating the transport and logistics systems of tomorrow.
The 12th edition of the European Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems and Services, will take place at the Strasbourg Convention and Exhibition Centre, Strasbourg, France, from 19-22 June 2017 under the theme ‘ITS Beyond Borders’. The Congress will give special emphasis to people, intelligent mobility users in a cross border environment, including seamless travel and sustainable, efficient and innovative mobility.
Imagine that your navigation system not only knows your route, but also the entire traffic of the city! The video of the EU-project TEAM – Tomorrow’s Elastic Adaptive Mobility – shows how collaborative mobility works. Collaborative mobility incorporates our individual needs while at the same time maintaining the overall optimum of the traffic situation.
CityMobil2 Project is a European example that inspires us according to the “Stimulating the uptake of space data” booklet, whose content greatly supported the relevant discussions during the Competiveness Council in Brussels, during the Netherlands Presidency of the Council of the EU.
