CIVITAS webinars

On Tuesday 19th November 2019, the H2020 project CoEXist and Civitas held a joint webinar on automation-ready transport modelling tools. The speakers addressed the question: How to include Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs) in traffic flow and transport demand simulations?

The overall aim of CoEXist is to prepare the transition phase during which automated and conventional vehicles will co-exist on cities’ roads and to make local authorities “automation-ready”.

CoEXist defines the concept of “automation-readiness” as: “The capability of making structured and informed decisions about the deployment of CAVs in a mixed road environment.”

The webinar guides the audience through the new functionalities of the automation-ready modelling tools to understand the benefits of such functionalities.

It is explained how automated vehicles could be modelled at a microscopic scale the operation of CAVs in platoons as well as at the macroscopic level, including the impacts of CAVs on transport demand and traffic time performance.

Today, many trips that are carried out using conventional cars could be done by light electric vehicles (LEVs). This would make urban transport much more sustainable. Emissions would “evaporate”, congestion would be reduced, transport would become safer, quieter and cheaper and public health would improve. Overall, replacement of car trips by LEV trips would make our cities much more liveable.

While there are many ways to improve and extend sustainable public transport in cities throughout the world, this webinar will explore two of them: bus rapid transit (BRT) and clean vehicles. Corresponding technology, cost-efficiency issues and relevant examples will be discussed. Methods for identifying a city’s long-term public transport needs and developing feasible measures to meet these needs will also be introduced.

CIVITAS thematic course

This e-course provides information about recent developments in urban Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and traffic management. In doing so, the e-course is intended to provide support to professionals in preparation and implementation of traffic management policies and prepare an initial selection of measure types suitable for their situation. ITS and traffic management applications help cities to achieve policy goals with regard to accessibility, liveability and safety. Accelerated by technology and ICT developments, the possibilities of using ITS and traffic management in urban environments have increased substantially in the past decade.

SOLUTIONS Webinars

Many cities strive for a cleaner vehicle fleet, whether the aim is to improve the municipal fleet (including public transport vehicles) or to encourage residents to choose alternatively fuelled or electric vehicles over conventionally fuelled vehicles. This interactive webinar will provide an introduction to electric vehicles (EVs) as well as guidance on how to increase the use of EVs in urban environments. Options on fostering EV deployment and examples from cities around the world will be discussed.

SOLUTIONS

The overall mission of SOLUTIONS is to support the uptake of innovative sustainable urban mobility solutions in Europe and other regions in the world, in particular in Asia, Latin America and the Mediterranean. The project addresses urban mobility solutions around six thematic clusters: public transport, transport infrastructure, city logistics, integrated planning/SUMP, network and mobility management and clean vehicles. This course addresses the field of clean vehicles and focuses on electric vehicles in particular.

SOLUTIONS Training 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.

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

When addressing network and mobility management, SOLUTIONS will tackle various intelligent transport systems (ITS) technologies and communication technologies applied to transport. This include cooperative systems, transport and traffic management, congestion management, tolling and charging, public transport information systems and other public and individual user technologies. The goal of all these applications being to ensure seamless connectivity, flexible travel, lower environmental impact and support of multimodal mobility patterns and lifestyles. The measures and solutions examined will be those that make the best use of the available resources and help plan and implement additions to the infrastructure network with a focus on the current and future mobility needs. It is important to ensure that mobility is not restricted but rather carried out in an intelligent manner while considering all advantages and disadvantages of different modes and how they can contribute to a sustainable mobility network.

Many cities strive for a cleaner vehicle fleet in the city. Electric vehicles (EVs) are one of the favorite options, as they produce zero exhaust emission. This e-learning course will provide an introduction to EVs and provide guidance on how to increase the use of EVs in urban environments.

SUTP Webinar

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.
