SOLUTIONS

This course examines different aspects of multimodal journey planning and examples of what has already been achieved in Europe. Best practice cases provided here will give an impression of the state-of-the-art, and we will examine barriers that currently prevent full integration of all modes and across all borders. In this context it must be noted that multimodal information is only one part that makes up a fully integrated transport systems.

SOLUTIONS Knowledge Sharing Kit

The main point to address in ‘city logistics’ is how to respond to freight requirements while decreasing environmental and social impacts. The ultimate goal being to decrease the flows of commercial road vehicles without increasing other flows like consumer car flows, to decrease commercial vehicles’ emissions and to prevent traffic congestion caused by vans and lorries double-parking during delivery. SOLUTIONS will look at policy options for public authorities to achieve these goals, including regulations (traffic restriction, low emissions zones), transport pricing and taxes, transport planning and the development of infrastructure dedicated to urban freight (lorry lanes, delivery and loading spaces, urban consolidation centres). Public authorities and private operators, both of whom have an interest in improving their vehicle fuel efficiency, consolidating of urban freight, and improving the efficiency of deliveries, have to work together to define the best urban freight schemes.

SOLUTIONS Knowledge Sharing Kit

SOLUTIONS will look at clean vehicles to consider readily available fuels, technologies, and energy-efficient options that offer substantial greenhouse gas emission reductions potential. The suitability of different option of clean vehicle technology depends not only on the local circumstances, but also on the national framework. The measures and solutions selected will cover a spectrum of technology options and vehicle categories to offer clean vehicle solutions to the variety of cities in the different regions. Important considerations will be the prerequisites for the application of different technologies and fuels, their feasibility in the local framework and the side effects that might be associated with their application. By building on experiences gained by other cities as fostered in the SOLUTIONS project, municipalities can reduce the risk of implementating clean vehicle technology, by determining potential investment costs and possible side effects. With regards to CO2 emitted by energy consumption, SOLUTIONS will take into account the full life cycle and Well-to-Wheel phase to ensure sustainability of the solutions suggested.

SOLUTIONS Training Kit

Sustainable urban mobility planning (SUMP) aims to support local authorities to plan and manage urban mobility more efficiently and fairly. With a focus on people, accessibility for all sectors of society and quality of life, this new planning paradigm is interdisciplinary and looks beyond geographical and institutional boundaries. This can be achieved by considering the local circumstances and needs and involving a wide range of stakeholders and the engagement of citizens in the decision making and planning process. In SOLUTIONS, leading cities will transfer their knowledge and experiences to take-up cities world-wide. For example, SOLUTIONS partner EMBARQ has already started to ‘tropicalize’ the EU guidelines for the Brazilian context, where sustainable urban mobility planning has become mandatory for cities. SOLUTIONS will provide take-up cities with practical experiences, training activities, study tours and practical exchange. The aim is to enable cities to start and implement SUMPs according to their local circumstances and to assist cities to make their cities economically robust, improve their environmental conditions and the make the city a liveable place for all citizens.

CIVITAS

In dealing with traffic and transport cities across Europe have to find a balance between throughput, livability, safety and sustainability. Different modes of transport use the same infrastructure and most cities do not have the capacity to enlarge the network. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and traffic management can help deal with managing traffic and transport in cities. Developments in this domain - with regard to big data, in-car technology, mobile applications but also Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) - have developed rapidly recently. This leads to questions for policy makers, practitioners and traffic managers, such as: how can traffic management and ITS contribute to my policy ambitions? What do technological developments mean for systems in place in my city? How can I benefit from innovations in this field? At the moment a policy note is being prepared within CIVITAS that aims to facilitate European municipalities in their selection of sustainable, environmental friendly and cost-efficient ITS and traffic management measures to keep in line with European, national and urban goals and to fulfill the specific requirements of the city. In the webinar this policy note will be presented. The city of Malaga will present one of their ITS measures: intelligent traffic control and software development for the Management Centre of Mobility (MOVIMA). This measure aims to improve traffic flow by means of implementing advanced traffic control tools focused on reducing stop-and-go traffic, reducing and/or adapting speed, and maximizing the reduction of emissions through traffic control.

Eurotransport webinars

In this webinar, Infineon, accompanied by Deutsche Telekom, identifies the major trends & challenges ahead for transport ticketing technology, demonstrating the need for truly open standards. The webinar consists of two 15-20 minute presentations and a 20 minute Q&A session.

The first presentation is conducted by Katja Kienzl,  Head of the Transport Ticketing segment of the Chip Card & Security division at Infineon Technologies. Katja begins the webinar by taking a look at why migration towards multi-applications will boost the market and how participants can benefit. She discusses existing options for convergences and what needs to be considered when choosing a technology that must be “fit for the future”, as well as other conditions that influence the success and profitability of a system. She demonstrates what a multi-application ecosystem looks like and what a technology provider needs to supply in order to support the whole ecosystem. 

In the second presentation, Michael Dupré, release manager for the NFC SIM card of Deutsche Telekom, discusses how to build CIPURSETM applications on the UICC used in mobile phones. Several NFC Services rely on hardware based security provided e.g. by a UICC. The security standard CIPURSE™ Mobile supports such approaches, and the presentation describes for which kind of services CIPURSE™ mobile can be used. For a simple use case the presentation will show how CIPURSE™ can be used to build such a service on the UICC just by configuration. It will be shown that only a few commands (APDUs) have to be sent to a CIPURSE™ instance. The presentation also addresses the topic of configuration / personalisation of a CIPURSE™ applet through a proxy app of the smartphone.

When we want to change behaviour, targeted messages that appeal to the individual will have more effect than a one-fits-all approach. In this webinar, we will give a brief overview of the benefits of and techniques for setting up targeted campaigns for specific segments of people. The city of Utrecht, the Netherlands, will present their experiences with their successful campaign developed within the SEGMENT project. SEGMENT experimented with two types of segmentation techniques: (1) Targeting consumers undergoing ‘life change moments’ which causes them to question and reconsider their travel habits. (2) Clustering these consumers (using detailed questionnaires) into relatively homogenous groups (in terms of their attitudes towards car use, cycling, electric vehicles or wider issues such as climate change and health etc.) and then devising bespoke campaigns.

El crecimiento rápido, no planificado y descoordinado de las ciudades ha puesto seriamente en peligro los sistemas de transporte existentes y ha incrementado significativamente el desafío de crear futuros sistemas de transporte, especialmente en los países en desarrollo. Es en los países en desarrollo, principalmente en las áreas urbanas, donde el mayor crecimiento del parque automotor se ha visto en los últimos años y se espera para los años venideros. Los impactos ambientales y sociales de estas tendencias son significativos ya que están directamente relacionados con la calidad de vida y la productividad urbana. Estos impactos incluyen congestión, consumo energético, contaminación del aire, carencias de seguridad y accidentes de tráfico. Por ende, las cuestiones de transporte urbano son de suma importancia para apoyar las exigencias de movilidad en las ciudades de rápido crecimiento y necesitan nuevas aproximaciones. Sin embargo, el transporte urbano es un asunto más político que técnico. Los aspectos técnicos son relativamente simples. Las decisiones difíciles están relacionadas con la ciudad que queremos y la manera como queremos vivir en ella. “¿Quién se va a beneficiar de los modelos adoptados? ¿Nos atrevemos a crear un modelo diferente al de las denominadas ciudades del mundo avanzado? ¿Nos atrevemos a crear un sistema de transporte que le dé prioridad a los pobres en lugar de a la minoría propietaria de automóvil particular? ¿Estamos tratando de encontrar la forma más eficiente y económica de mover a la población de la ciudad de la manera más limpia y cómoda? ¿O simplemente estamos tratando de minimizar los atascos del tráfico de las clases altas? Estas preguntas son formuladas por Enrique Peñalosa, ex-alcalde de Bogotá (Colombia), quién introdujo una serie de medidas de transporte sostenible en su ciudad. Este curso de Movilidad Urbana Sostenible en Países en Desarrollo está diseñado para proveer respuestas a las preguntas mencionadas así como soluciones y aproximaciones alternativas en planeación de transporte urbano que apunten a un sistema de transporte más sostenible en las ciudades de países en desarrollo.

With 500 million NFC mobile devices in use today, the use of intelligent NFC tags in industries such as mobility, tourism, shopping and marketing open up novel ways of interacting with customers.

In this webinar we discuss transport ticketing smart cards, smart city smart cards, mobile NFC devices and software development kits. We explore how these elements can be used to contribute towards creating a smart city by integrating information with security and connectivity. In addition, we take a look at how open data and easy to use software development kits make a smart city eco system accessible to a broad developer base.

By watching this webinar you will learn about the benefits of new information technologies, how they can be rolled out and how they add value to cities. In addition, we will take a tour through the most recent technological developments and how these can be used to create a smart city. Finally, we give a perspective from an integrator point of view on what it means to build up a novel transport ticketing system and the possibilities to interlink with other, existing services in the city.

SUTP Webinar

Urban Mobility Plans (UMPs) are a strategic tool to guide the development of transport in urban areas and regions. UMPs expanded the scope of traditional planning processes by focusing on the mobility needs of all population groups in an integrated way. At the same time, an UMP could be a powerful instrument for realising over-arching policy, e.g. in the field of equity and sustainable economic development, greenhouse gas emission reduction, air quality and urban development. National urban transport policies can shape planning frameworks and guidelines, offer capacity-building formats to planners and provide necessary funding for investments in sustainable transport infrastructures.
