Collective and intelligent mobility

Our Collective and Intelligent Mobility team supports cities and regions in integrating innovative and disruptive technologies into their sustainable urban mobility visions and strategies. As change agents and technology brokers, we facilitate and support the appropriate incorporation of new trends – for example electro-mobility, Mobility as a Service (MaaS) or connected and automated driving – into urban mobility planning processes, always looking for people-focused low-carbon solutions.

Using a multi-stakeholder approach including city authorities, transport operators, industry and research organisations, we tailor mobility solutions by actively bringing emerging technologies from the lab to tests and demonstrations in urban and regional environments. We prepare cities and regions through capacity building for changing organisational settings and by developing actors’ competencies to manage the challenges of emerging technologies in transport and mobility.

Our team is also working on change management, strategy and policy development, technology transfer, business case and model development, impact and transferability assessment as well as the development of processes and tools to support decision-making for low-carbon mobility planning (focusing on technology-oriented tools).

Our services

  • Advising and supporting clients in the incorporation of new mobility trends into sustainable urban mobility planning (SUMP) processes and strategies; for example integrating automation, electro-mobility, Connected/ Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), Mobility as a Service (MaaS), shared mobility, and big data concepts.
  • Development of processes and tools to support decision-making for low-carbon and technology-oriented mobility/transport planning
  • Capacity building for public transport authorities and companies
  • Development of concepts, business cases and models for the electrification and automation of public transport
  • Developing integrated electromobility strategies and concepts for multi-purpose charging infrastructure
  • Impact and transferability assessment of technologies and new mobility trends
  • Urban mobility/ transport strategy and policy development
  • Research, analysis, multi-stakeholder consultation, and promotion to support the above
