Orchestrated mobility: Mobile app solutions for seamless travel

How can smart mobile apps prepare you for the future, create seamless passenger experiences, and provide opportunities for new sources of revenue?

In this webinar, Axon Vibe discussed how they are working with SBB and others to prepare for the future of travel. By creating seamless passenger experiences through travel assistance, multimodal connections, door to door mobility and passive ticketing, they can significantly increase passenger satisfaction. But they can also increase operational efficiency, by reducing peak loads, identify under served areas and prepare for future network expansions. And lastly, they will monetise your customer base for you by connecting them to ancillary services based on their predicted needs.

Co-Creating Sustainable Cities

Around the world, major challenges of our time such as population growth and climate change are being addressed in cities. Here, citizens play an important role amidst governments, companies, NGOs and researchers in creating social, technological and political innovations for achieving sustainability.

Citizens can be co-creators of sustainable cities when they engage in city politics or in the design of the urban environment and its technologies and infrastructure. In addition, citizens influence and are influenced by the technologies and systems that they use every day. Sustainability is thus a result of the interplay between technology, policy and people’s daily lives. Understanding this interplay is essential for creating sustainable cities. In this MOOC, we zoom in on Amsterdam, Beijing, Ho Chi Minh City, Nairobi, Kampala and Suzhou as living labs for exploring the dynamics of co-creation for sustainable cities worldwide. We will address topics such as participative democracy and legitimacy, ICTs and big data, infrastructure and technology, and SMART technologies in daily life.

This global scope will be used to illustrate why specific forms of co-creation are preferred in specific urban contexts. Moreover, we will investigate and compare these cities on three themes that have a vast effect on city life:

  •  Water and waste
  •  Energy, air, food and mobility
  •  Green spaces and food

This MOOC will teach you about the dynamics of co-creation and the key principles of citizens interacting with service providing companies, technology and infrastructure developers, policy makers and researchers. You will gain an understanding of major types of co-creation and their interdependency with their socio-technical and political contexts. You will become equipped to indicate how you can use co-creation to develop innovative technologies, policy arrangements or social practices for a sustainable city in your own community. You will demonstrate this by developing an action plan, research proposal or project idea.

Basic knowledge of sustainability in urban settings, urban environmental technology and urban management is assumed.

This course forms a part of two educational programme of the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS) - AMS Vital and Circular city research themes. It is developed by Wageningen UR and TU Delft, two of the founding universities of AMS Institute, and in cooperation with Tsinghua University.

What you will learn:

  • Different definitions, forms and typical examples of co-creation for developing sustainable urban water, energy and green systems.
  • The potential of co-creation for developing sustainable cities.
  • The interdependency between co-creation and its policy and socio-technical contexts.
  • Comparison of different real-life cases of co-creation.
  • To understand interdependencies between the real-life cases of co-creation and their policy and socio-technical contexts.
  • How to formulate the potential of co-creation in your work or daily life.

Mobility Academy

Welcome to the Urban Nodes course on how to improve the efficiency of the transport system in an urban node of the TEN-T core network!

This course consists of 4 units. It offers an overview of the urban node concept and its benefits, describes the ever-growing importance of urban nodes in the TEN-T context, looks at the methods to assess the most cost-efficient transport measures and presents four case studies and their evaluation experience. 

We have tried to keep the course concrete and hands-on; each unit has a homework task that guides you through the assessment process in your local context. This will involve examining and researching your own local context or looking at examples from other places to see how they might apply to your context.

You will have the opportunity to exchange knowledge with course participants from other urban nodes and to share ideas with them through the course forum. We (Susanne Böhler-Baedeker and Ana-Maria Baston, the course moderators) will join the discussion on the forum regularly, offering comments, questions and feedback.

ELIPTIC Webinar Series

Simulation tools help public authorities in the planning of e-bus systems and electrification of their fleets. They are an integral part of the work in the use cases of Pillar A “Safe integration of e-Buses using existing electric public transport infrastructure” of the ELIPTIC project. After a short introduction into the work of the ELIPTIC project and the use cases related to the webinar’s topic, the presenters from the research organisations RWTH Aachen, Fraunhofer IVI and Vrije Universiteit Brussel showed different aspects of simulation that help in the planning of e-buses. This included the presentation of a software-based approach to find the optimal technical configuration for the use of e-buses on different routes by Fabian Meishner, RWTH Aachen. These calculations are a helpful tool to build sound business cases for the long-term use of electric bus systems. An example was also given of the results of a vehicle simulation-based feasibility study of converting a Diesel bus line with hybrid trolleybuses (by extending the existing trolleybus line) in a rural area in the East of Germany (Dr.-Ing Thoralf Knote, Fraunhofer IVI). Hybrid trolleybuses have an on-board energy storage which enables a fully electric operation without catenaries. Finally, the webinar addressed design questions and charging strategies for e-buses, exemplified in the case of Brussels (Prof. Dr. Omar Hegazy, Vrije Universiteit Brussel).

    Urban Nodes

    The webinar is organised in the framework of the study “Improving the efficiency of the transport system in urban nodes of the TEN-T core network”, which was carried out on behalf of DG MOVE. The 88 urban nodes are often the starting point or the final destination ("first” and “last mile") for passengers and freight moving. From the TEN-T perspective, the main aim is to remove urban bottlenecks and missing physical, technical and organisational links on the infrastructure. The main challenge for urban nodes is to improve multi-modal connections and at the same time consider connections with local and regional transport to ensure smooth first and last miles in passengers’ and freight transport. The new TEN-T policy, formulated in the TEN-T Guidelines (2013), is no longer perceived as merely a funding instrument for major infrastructure projects, but a policy which takes the network holistic planning approach as the main pillar.

    Technology developments make possible a new generation of on-demand / flexible public transport services, more cost-effective and better tailored to market circumstances than prior offerings. Such services targeted at the general public — for both first mile / last mile access and local circulation purposes — have been deployed in 22 service zones by the Denver transit agency in the largest implementation to date in the USA. The technology platform for managing these services, MobilityDR, is key to this outcome.

    In this webinar, DemandTrans Solutions and its partners show how an appropriate technology platform in combination with innovative service concepts provides regional transit authorities with the ability to configure, control, and operate cost-effective DRT / flexible transit services.
