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.

GEF-SUTP Training Modules on Sustainable Urban Transport Planning (2013)

The Government of India (GoI) initiated the Sustainable Urban Transport Project (SUTP) with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), UNDP, and the World Bank. The objective of the SUTP is to facilitate the provision of urban transport infrastructure and services in a manner that is consistent with the objectives of the National Urban Transport Policy (NUTP), which is a shift towards public transport and other sustainable modes of travel. One major component of this project involves building capacity amongst practitioners in the field of urban transport in order to strengthen policy making, decision-making, project implementation and management, operations and project evaluation skills at the central, state and city levels. The capacity building component of GEF - SUTP aims to establish the needed capacity for regular skill development of practitioners, public officials, other public functionaries, and urban professionals in the field of urban transport to be able to find solutions to these problems and apply the skills to planning. Accordingly, a set of 10 subject modules, each for a group of topics on subjects associated with sustainable urban transport planning, were developed by EMBARQ India, GIZ-SUTP and UMTC. These 10 modules are structured in such a way so as to provide the necessary background together with case studies and relevant learning’s for India that will provide a base to build capacity amongst the practitioners, city officials, etc.

TransportLearning

The material is an introduction to the topic of sustainable mobility campaigns. The module aims to assist transport practitioners beginning sustainable mobility campaigns. Therefore it is designed mainly to set up and carry out small campaigns. Nonetheless, this material also gives information on planning and implementing as well as best practise information for large scale campaigns.

CIVITAS

CIVITAS VANGUARD and the CIVITAS thematic group 'Safety and Security' held a first WEBINAR on how to create safe routes to school and school surroundings, in order to create an inviting environment for sustainable trips to school. Through short 10-minute presentations this webinar looked at experiences from several CIVITAS cities that have worked to create safer school areas. They presented their activities, as well as the results they have obtained and the problems they encountered.

UNITAR webinar series

The rapid and often unplanned and uncoordinated growth of cities has seriously compromised existing transportation systems and significantly increased the challenge of creating future transportation systems especially in developing countries. It is indeed in developing countries that the greatest growth in motor vehicles has been seen in the past few years and is expected in the future, primarily in urban areas. The environmental and social impacts are significant and directly related to quality of life and urban productivity. These impacts include congestion, energy consumption, air pollution, and traffic crashes. Thus, urban transportation issues are of foremost importance to support the mobility requirements in these growing cities and require new approaches. However, urban transport is a political rather than a technical issue. The technical aspects are relatively simple. The difficult decisions relate to the type of city we want and the way we want to live. Who is going to benefit from the models adopted? Do we dare to create a transport model different from that of the so-called advanced world cities? Do we dare create a transport system giving priority to the needs of the poor majority rather than the automobile owning minority? Are we trying to find the most efficient, economical way to move a city’s population, as cleanly and as comfortable as possible? Or are we just trying to minimize the upper class’s traffic jams? These questions are posed by Enrique Peñalosa, the former mayor of Bogotá (Columbia), who introduced a number of sustainable measures in his city. This online course on Sustainable Urban Mobility in Developing Countries, based on the material jointly developed by GIZ and UNITAR, is designed to provide answers to the abovementioned questions, as well as solutions and alternative approaches in the area of urban transport planning that target a more sustainable transport system in Developing Cities.
