COMING UP IN 2023

MOBILITY

Here you’ll find all the content relating to the mobility sector that will be covered at #SCEWC23.

MOBILITY

Transportation is still the fastest-growing source of pollution globally, accounting for 23% share of global emissions in 2022, according to the International Energy Agency. What’s more, projections from different sources indicate an increase in emissions in the coming years, if no immediate adjustments are implemented. But trends such as multimodal networks boosting a more active way of moving around the city, and new models promoting zero-emission and connected and automated mobility, are on the rise. Local governments must, now more than ever, make sure to build our cities with a human-centric focus. Will cities apply inclusive policies toward a smooth transition to net-zero economies? How can we leverage technology to improve urban mobility?

THE EVENT TO PUSH URBAN MOBILITY FORWARD

With cities rapidly expanding and new technologies constantly appearing on the horizon, the sector needs a place to convene, discuss the big issues and discover solutions – and that’s where Tomorrow.Mobility World Congress comes in.

Within the framework of Smart City Expo World Congress, #TMWC has returned to Barcelona this November to reignite the debate on urban mobility, co-organized by Fira Barcelona and EIT Urban Mobility, an initiative of the EU’s European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).

KEY DEBATE TOPICS FOR THE 2023 EDITION

Mobility Data Spaces

Mobility Data Spaces

Establishing governance structures and policies, including their associated business models, is a key step to enabling data sharing and unlocking the potential of mobility data to enable and/or improve sustainable mobility services (international rail travel, in-car data powering insurance, or traffic management, for instance). Connecting different mobility data ecosystems in a secure way (cybersecurity) will provide better tailored, higher quality mobility services.

Inclusivity, Affordability & Fairness

Inclusivity, Affordability & Fariness

A major aspect to design the future of mobility is inclusivity policies to benefit all population groups and don’t leave anyone behind: from gender equality in transport planning and operations to redesigning services for an ageing society (15-minute cities), reducing transit deserts (transport on-demand), safer street designs that enhance children’s autonomy, or policies that have the potential to reduce transport poverty.

Connected, Cooperative & Automated Mobility

CCAM

To enable the adoption of automated vehicles for passengers and goods, it’s necessary to allow the exchange of information among vehicles and the road infrastructure. The accelerated deployment of 5G connectivity corridors, artificial intelligence and semiconductors, cybersecurity for resilient digital infrastructures, is very important. Enhanced last-mile logistics can benefit from CCAM applications, as well as more efficient public transport network operations.

Sustainable Urban Logistics

Sustainable Urban Logistics

Last mile urban logistics must gain higher levels of efficiency through concepts like the better integration of ports and cities, new delivery models, pick-up points, shared goods services, digitalization of the logistics value chain, or new models to improve reverse logistics due to new customer e-commerce habits. Logistics can benefit from the deployment of technologies like electrification, and artificial intelligence for route optimization and demand prediction.

Multimodality

Multimodality

Better travel options for citizens capable of reducing private car ownership, such as multimodal e-ticketing and payments systems, enabling multimodal travel services that integrate public transport and micromobility for better end-to-end traveler experience will power data for multimodal traffic management integrating information from the public, private-own and private-shared fleets. Such integrations can optimize transport networks and nudge travelers’ behavior towards more sustainable choices.

Urban Air Mobility

Urban Air Mobility

While policies and user acceptance enabling UAM still suggest the medium to long term horizon for passengers, several use cases are emerging for air mobility: freight distribution in geofenced areas like ports or industrial parks, event management, or emergency response coordination. For such use cases, eVTOLs and drones can cater to specific use-cases and add value to our existing transport systems.

Energy Transition

Energy Transition

As the transition to net-zero economies accelerates, different models of energy storage compete to power electric vehicles: battery technology aims to optimize dependency on specific scarce materials, while green hydrogen emerges as an alternative that can guarantee sovereignty in energy supply. Energy communities based on local generation, vehicle-grid integration and smart management systems are also key. Ramping up recycling capacity will be crucial to leverage the benefits of circular economy for the energy transition.

Active Mobility

Active Mobility

In 2021 bicycle and e-bike sales reached an all-time record in the EU, with over 22 million units sold. In that year, total sales of bicycles and e-bikes increased 7.5% in comparison with 2020, reaching almost €20bn. This trend, together with the growth in popularity of micromobility services, gives a boost to active mobility in our cities. Combined with journeys by foot, it makes a significant contribution to quieter and cleaner streets, while directly improving citizens’ health.
