Urban mobility is a key sector that cities need to address for accelerating their transition to climate neutrality: citizens, freight forwarders, urban planners, transport operators as well as technology providers should jointly exploit the combined potentials of electric , automated and connected vehicles as well as integrated and shared people mobility and freight transport in their planning and actions. This requires a mutual understanding and alignment of the opportunities of technical solutions from the CCAM and 2Zero partnerships and of needs identified by users and cities striving for the Mission target of climate neutrality.
-Co-design process between local public authorities, city planners, end users and automated and zero-emission mobility systems providers to ensure a user-centric and seamless integration of solutions in existing ecosystems
-Demonstrate integrated and shared, automated and zero-emission solutions and services for people mobility and freight transport
-Develop open while resilient systems and replicable solutions that can be scaled-up within a city environment and flexibly adapted to current and evolving needs and use cases in the context of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP)
-Evaluate cost and benefits of the systems and services tested along with real-world challenges and opportunities, based on user and city needs
-Mobility solutions that respond to people’s and cities’ needs, co-designed with local authorities, citizens and stakeholders, tested and implemented in cities to achieve climate neutrality by 2030
-Transferrable solutions for mobility of people and goods exploiting the combined potential of electrification, automation and connectivity to significantly and measurably contribute to: lower energy demand, improved air quality, less noise, reduced congestion, more reliable predictive travel times and more efficient transport operations, improved safety particularly for vulnerable road users, improved inclusiveness
-Implementation plans for local and regional transport authorities to replicate the roll-out of innovative smart mobility solutions and related infrastructure (in particular for charging and/or connectivity) in cities beyond those involved in the project
