Modelling Emerging Transport Solutions for Urban Mobility

Disruptive technologies and emerging mobility solutions such as MaaS (Mobility as a Service), CAVs (Connected Automated Vehicles), new shared mobility services and demand responsive transport, are bringing radical changes to urban mobility.

The goal of MOMENTUM is to develop a set of new data analysis methods, transport models and planning support tools to capture the impact of these new transport options on the urban mobility ecosystem, in order to support cities in the task of designing the right policy mix to exploit the full potential of these emerging mobility solutions.

The project started in May 2019 and will run for three years.

Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility 2020

The University of Thessaly organises the 5th Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility in Skiathos Island, Greece on 27 – 29 May 2020. The topic of the Conference is: “Advances in Mobility as a Service Systems”. Participants will disseminate knowledge and exchange good practices in the area of urban transportation. Sub-themes that will be touched upon during the Conference include social networks and traveller behaviour, traffic emissions and environmental impacts, and city logistics systems. CSUM2020 thematic fields include the following: Public transport and demand responsive systems Reshaping transport modelling Transformational technologies Connected and autonomous vehicles and fleets Accelerating deployment: Governance and business models Accelerating deployment: Trials, pilots and case studies Data sharing Digitalization Smart cities Social networks and traveller behavior Traffic emissions and environmental impacts Smart urban logistics systems Human factors Infrastructure resilience The conference highlights will be: A three-hour training course will be offered to a limited number of researchers and practitioners with hands-on applications on MaaS modelling. The course will be free of charge for the Conference participants. Distinguished researchers will give keynote speeches on the emerging technologies and innovative applications. For more information, please visit the conference page.
