The time to prevent global warming from reaching the 1.5°C threshold is running out. Mobility represents around 25% of Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions and it is the main cause of air pollution in cities, a major threat to urban citizens with adverse health outcomes. Emerging ICT technologies such as IoT, big data and AI can help cities to overcome this challenge and reach EU’s carbon neutrality objective. However, there are still quite few technical challenges to be tackled with to take maximum benefit of those technologies.
This talk will focus on three of them and present how Eclipse sensiNact has been helping cities around the world to better monitor and manage their mobility infrastructure
1) How to collect heterogeneous data from the mobility infrastructure
2) How to correlate data among different city divisions in particular with environmental data and obtain actionable information
3) How to monitor the impact of mobility actions on the environment
The talk will show with concrete examples how Eclipse sensiNact has been helping cities such as New York, Talinn, Grenoble, Paris-Saclay and Jena to respond to questions such as: what is the city behaviour in terms of mobility, where should I install the new soft mobility terminals, where should I install new park&ride facilities, how safe are our intersections, what is the impact of the mobility actions (new bike lane, new bus stop, etc.) to the environment, to the economy and to the citizen satisfaction, etc.
