Overview of Europe-wide review of urban mobility research published
The European Commission funded Transport Research & Innovation Portal (TRIP) has published the first Europe-wide review of urban mobility research.
The report is based on TRIP's database of over 7,700 projects. It offers technical and policy recommendations to support automotive and infrastructure development, against the background of the challenges related to urbanisation, an ageing population, and emission reduction targets.
Issues raised in the report include the advances in automotive technology and systems, such as floating transport data and driverless vehicles, and the policy and infrastructure that is needed to provide a framework for this innovation. The review also considers the challenges in smart public transport implementation, including the need for further work on cross border ticketing and data protection considerations.
