|Approach towards new mobility solutions
The problems of mobility in cities are clear. However, the possible solutions are still in their infancy. A shift from the private automobile to a multi-modal approach is the preferred trend. Here we can think about buses, trains, metros and other individual tranport modes or a combination of these. We must recoginise the need for both high speed scheduled mass transport as well as individualised on-demand short distance transport. This is why we have to test and evaluate new solutions based on advanced city vehicles. At the end of the project, we will have a better understanding of the capabilities of new technologies and what the expected gains can be. There will be proposals for certification of advanced transport systems on a European level. Tools will have been created to disseminite the project results.
