FinEst Centre for Smart Cities is having the next Research & Innovation Seminar (RIS) on the 01.12.2021 with the topic “Future mobility - piloting systemic change for commuters in urban traffic”. 

Research and innovation seminar

Since June 2020, FinEst Centre for Smart Cities has been organizing Research and Innovation Seminars (RIS). The purpose of RIS is to create a connection between researchers and city developers. This happens by presenting research results, plans and urban challenges presented by city developers, urban planners etc.

The next RIS session with the topic “Future mobility - piloting systemic change for commuters in urban traffic” is happening on the 01.12.2021 from 10:00am to 11:40am (EEST) and can be seen online.

This RIS session will focus on FinEst Large Scale Pilots related to mobility: A Conceptual Ecosystem Solution to Transport System Management. The idea is to develop a new conceptual ecosystem solution for transport system management of the near future, where additionally to the existing means of transport, first/last mile self-driving shuttles and micro mobility solutions are going to play an important role. To get people to choose more frequently public transport instead of their personal cars in urban environment, a significatly more flexible and user-friendly approach is highly required, which is also one of the project’s priorities. One of the main outcomes of the pilot project is  data exchange platform of different transport systems, that enables unified data exchange between different service providers and end-user applications.
