Urban mobility concepts

This research field is focused on the biggest challenges regarding future people and goods transportation. In both car services and private cars the car should be integrated in the mobility system as a tool. Sensors, connected vehicle technologies and smart traffic regulation systems will improve the mobility efficiency by managing public transportation vehicles as well as private and the shared ones. A constant flow of data to improve the whole system will also provide data for fields related to life quality, like environment, health and safety. New car concepts will be needed. On the one hand current car concepts in the future will adapt perfectly to urban environments causing less pollution, noise, and space occupation. On the other hand new vehicle concepts will arise exclusively for urban applications like flexible cooperative car, vehicles for pedestrian areas, integration of vehicles in vehicles, etc.
