27 Oct Accesibility in Smart Cities: Urban Means of Transport
Being able to move around the cities is a basic requirements for a normal development of human activities. In this regard, the accesibility in Smart Cities and the Urban Means of Transport play an important role in big cities.
Daily trips between home and work, university or even your supermarket require a high degree of accessibility for the economic or social development of a city. The better and more efficient this access, the greater the economic benefits through economies of scale, agglomeration effects, and networking advantages.
Accesibility in Smart Cities.
Right now there is a long way to go but there are cities that have long implemented intelligent systems that promote sustainability and improved quality of life.
We also find information systems that collect data on urban transport, traffic or even atmospheric variables. This information helps to make public transport more efficient and accessible.
However, there are new forms and technologies derived from the Smart City concept that introduce new concepts regarding Smart Mobility. Concepts like connected cars, mobile apps that turn taxis into ride-hailing services, trip planning, electric scooter rental and many more begin to flood our daily lives.
Smart Transportation of the future.
Today’s cars are designed and equipped with Internet of Things devices that allow to know and share data in real time about conditions, traffic, accidents, etc. They can also receive information from systems like smart traffic lights, streetlights, lane markers, street signs, and smart parking sensors.
Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS).
An Advanced Traffic Management System is a new way of providing the city and drivers real-time info about all what is happen in the city. nA platform like FIWOO can help reduce annoying rush hour congestion, emissions and can help optimize traffic.
It also has the infrastructure to combine information from different sensors such as traffic lights, parking lots or pollution control to improve the quality of life in our cities and global effects on the environment.
Mobility as a Service (MaaS).
For cities, this type of solution creates many opportunities to improve the quality of life in cities, brings new types of Smart Mobility like ride-sharing, taxi, electric scooter or bicycle-sharing and a centralized system is created that allows to obtain a global vision of the activity of transport in the city.
