SUITS Webinars

The SUITS webinar "on data management and exploitation for sustainable urban mobility", will advocate crowdsourcing as a sustainable and low-cost method to acquire mobility data and it will present a data modeling approach to minimise traffic delays. The webinar will also discuss approaches to effectively handle the potential for "big data" that may result from the proposed data collection methodologies.

The webinar will take place on 05 May 2020, at 2pm (CET).   

The detailed agenda can be downloaded here

Developing public policy for SUMP implementation, that balances the needs of citizen mobility with urban freight logistics and land-use conflicts, requires extensive traffic data collection and traffic monitoring. Only through the close and continuous monitoring of such a complex system (in a sustainable way) can this system be improved and the effectiveness of public policies be properly assessed.

This webinar will present tools and methodologies for the collection, modeling, management and exploitation of urban mobility data that can maximise the effectiveness and sustainability of urban transport measures and policies. The webinar is targeted at local authorities (mainly transport and mobility departments), as well as researchers and other stakeholders, whose work focuses on urban mobility planning, optimisation and policy-making.

The webinar will be moderated by Frederic Rudolph, project coordinator at the Wuppertal Institute. Speakers are:

  • Dr. Fotis Liotopoulos, Computer Engineer and General Manager of SBOING.
  • Dr. Liotopoulos will present a web-based tool for the selection and extraction of global user mobility traces (GPX files) from a database of over half a million traces. The tool, MyPolisLive.net is a web platform for real-time and historical urban traffic monitoring. The results of a pilot implementation of urban traffic monitoring through crowdsourcing, using MyPolisLive.net, in the city of Kalamaria (Greece).
  • Dr. Miriam Pirra, Researcher at Politecnico di Torino will provide concrete examples of how it is possible to exploit data collected using such tools at the municipality level. She will focus on the results of a pilot study in the city of Turin to show benefits and applicability of the data collection tools in the development of transport measures in European cities.
  • Mr. Csaba Matrahazi, Software Developer at LogDrill Ltd., Hungary is doing research and development projects by providing R&D background and documentation mainly in SCRUM. His main technologies are HTML5, CSS, JS, PHP, Python, C#, Git, GitHub, and Jira.

The webinar will be complemented by an e-learning course.  More information about the e-learning course will follow soon.

How can a city become a more accessible community for all of its citizens - and not simply by providing more wheelchair ramps and automatic doors - but actually serving all types of forms of mobility? Ensuring good accessibility for example to elderly and people with disabilities can solve lot of important daily issues for a large number of citizens. By exploring new approaches to this important issue a city can effectively improve the mobility for all of their citizens. Accessibility and social equity are at the center of this CIVITAS webinar. Three guest panelists shared their experiences and thoughts on the topic. Together these three panelists introduced new approaches, latest experiences and best practices that can help any city in evaluating their own accessibility strategy in city planning and urban mobility agenda.

Freight distribution is a vital part of life in modern cities and plays a relevant role within the whole urban mobility system. But, among the different components of mobility, urban freight logistics had and sometimes continue to have less emphasis in city policies and thus failing to contribute to the reduction of its negative impacts on urban liveability, like noise, pollution, congestion and reduced road safety. In order to support policy makers and urban mobility practitioners, the CIVITAS WIKI project recently released the Policy Note ‘Making urban freight logistics more sustainable’ which condensates successful approaches and solutions particularly addressed to small and medium-sized European cities. This free webinar has presented and discussed in a comprehensive way the outcomes of the Policy Note offering also an insight on some selected measures. One concrete experience from the CIVITAS city of Almada (PT) on how to plan and develop an efficient and sustainable urban freight logistics system has also been presented, together with the new CIVITAS Freight Cluster established for a better coordination of urban freight projects at urban 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.
