Transport & Planning
The interaction between people and their transport will keep changing. Engineering solutions to make these interactions efficient help us to safely adapt to the changes. It requires traveller friendly infrastructures where digital possibilities are smoothly integrated. There’s already a world of information and apps at your fingertips. The number of services will only grow.
‘Smart mobility changes the way travellers decide which services appeal most to them. This brings opportunity for creating success in MaaS, Mobility as a Service.’
When travelling from A to B, we all encounter many elements that now become neatly linked to each other by rapid digitalisation. Besides the route, the means, the time, the costs and the comfort, there are external variables at work that influence the safety and effectiveness of travelling. Smart digital services increasingly become the centre of our mobility.
Take smart traffic lights that e.g. react to local traffic and weather forecasts or events, they will soon make urban traffic flows more efficient and personal travelling smoother. While modalities are becoming more fluid with hover boards, e-bikes, car sharing, self-driving cars, platooning, and hybrid public transportation. In this chain of mobility, travellers formulate their own journey from origin to destination. Public parties in collaboration with industrial and service businesses are becoming the guides and guards of travelling, rather than mere providers of infrastructure.
