Integration, Operation and Optimization of Mobility Systems

Capacity Area B1 deals with increasing the energy efficiency in transportation from a systems point of view. To this end users, technology and the infrastructure are interfaced with each other by linking mobility patterns with urban planning and environmen-tal data. This includes simulating and monitoring people’s spatio-temporal behavior in near real-time with the goal of calculating and communicating energy saving options. Such approach will result in an optimization of mobility systems and therefore a reduction of the future energy demand. Three innovative research areas are envisioned, namely: “Integration, Infrastructure & New Urban Transport”, “Spatio-temporal Data Acquisi-tion & Analysis, Monitoring Devices and User Communication” and finally “Urban Planning & Environmental Impact”.
