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.

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.

The need to adopt a gender-sensitive perspective is emerging as a challenging and impending task for urban mobility planners and decision makers. Women travel differently than men in relation to transport modes used, distance travelled, the daily number of trips and their pattern, and, not surprisingly, they also travel for different purposes. Organised by the CIVITAS Thematic Group Integrated Planning, the webinar debated on emerging gender sensitive approaches on mobility planning for achieving gender equality in transport planning and accessibility. First the gaps to be filled about public transport and planning have been discussed, then the point of view of a civic platform to improve transport through citizens’ participation has been presented and lastly the successful city strategy implemented by a former demonstration city of CIVITAS II has been showcased.

The transport sector currently accounts for about 6.7 Gigatonnes of CO2, which is equivalent to 23% of all energy related Greenhouse Gas emissions and is set to double by 2050 if current trends persist, in particular in emerging economies (IPCC 2014). Setting the transport sector on a low-carbon development pathway is essential for global climate change mitigation efforts that aim to stabilise global warming at 2 Degrees Celsius, which is the internationally agreed target under the United Nations Framework Conventions on Climate Change (UNFCCC). To contribute to this target developed countries will have to rapidly decarbonise their transport sector over the coming decades (-80% by 2050) and developing and emerging countries will have to curb growth (+70% by 2050), which will require substantial policy action at all levels of government (IEA 2014). Together with Oliver Lah (Wuppertal Institute) we explore the pathways for low-carbon transport and provide an overview on key policy measures at the local and national level.

Most of our city centres are often overrun by freight delivery vehicles causing severe congestion problems and pollution. Urban Freight Logistic has to be re-thinked by introducing on one hand some restrictive measures for a more efficient freight distribution and, on the other, new “green“ vehicles more suitable for historical city centres and humanised areas. Organised by the CIVITAS Thematic Group on Urban Freight Logistics with the support of CIVITAS WIKI, the webinar will presented 3 case studies and discussed more in detail of cargo bikes for last mile delivery as well as of regulatory measures and incentives for zero emission city logistics.

The Bus system is a key element of every public transport network all over the world. By choosing a cleaner bus option local decision makers can contribute to the decarbonisation of the urban transport and improvement of the air quality in their cities. In order to reduce emissions from buses it is possible to act on the improvement of the vehicle technology, act on powertrain or consider alternative fuels to be used to propel the vehicle. The webinar presented and discussed the new CIVITAS Policy Note “Smart choices for cities - Clean buses for your city” as well as the report “Clean Buses - Experiences with Fuel and Technology Options” released by the European project Clean Fleets. Apart for presenting technology and fuel options, the webinar highlighted some practical city experiences in running and operating clean buses: together with the cities participating in the Clean Fleets project, also the CIVITAS demonstrative city Gdynia presented its experience in the trolleybus system. The webinar addressed in particular the following questions: (1) Why do municipalities need to consider cleaner options for buses? (2) What are the options available and which energy source/technology should be chosen? (3) What are the costs, emissions and other advantages/disadvantages of the different options? (4) Short term, medium term and long-term investment decisions

Eurotransport webinars

This webinar discusses the general principles involved in counting people and provide some examples of how counting people has brought benefits to both customers and service companies.

Eurotech has over 10 years of experience in providing people counting devices for a wide variety of applications all over the world. The purpose of this webinar is to discuss the motivation and benefits of counting people and highlight typical and unusual applications.

Knowing how many people are in, have entered or have used a facility is interesting to most organisations and innovative companies can now transform this information into knowledge that improves their competitive advantage.

The ability to combine these people counts with other relevant information enriches knowledge allowing better decisions to be made. Optimisation of services based on real usage, whether that is bus routes or cleaning rotas, can improve customer satisfaction and reduce cost.

Having both real time access to this information and historical trend analysis allows further enhancements with dynamic updates that can be delivered to personnel and customers. Imagine being able to advise your customers that the next train to London is full, but the one five minutes later is empty; better still send them a discount voucher for the coffee shop while they wait if a service is oversubscribed. Alternatively, knowing that a large number of people have just entered a department within a retail store would allow the manager to deploy more staff to serve them; thus increasing sales and customer satisfaction without hiring more staff. The real time effect of merchandising changes or in store promotions can also be monitored and adjusted accordingly.

There are several examples of city streets converted to a more balanced coexistence of different road users. Traffic calming measures and other innovative nterventions can create safer and more fluent mobility conditions for cars, public transport and goods vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians. Which are the most attractive and low cost solutions? Can road design be used also for fast interventions and for active involvement of citizens in testing new traffic rules and more sustainable modes? CIVITAS WIKI and the Thematic Group Safety and Security invite you to interact, share your experiences and your questions.
