HARMONY

March 11, 2019

HARMONY envisages developing a new generation of harmonised spatial and multimodal transport planning tools which comprehensively model the dynamics of the changing transport sector and spatial organisation, enabling metropolitan area authorities to lead the transition to a low carbon new mobility era in a sustainable manner. Small-scale demonstrations with Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) and drones take place to understand in real-life their requirements and collect data to be used for modelling. The HARMONY model suite is also linked to the EC's EU-wide model TRIMODE to further identify the impact of the concepts and technologies on the TEN-T level. HARMONY's concepts and the model suite are applied and validated on six EU metropolitan areas on six TEN-T corridors: 1. Rotterdam (NL), 2. Oxfordshire (UK), 3. Turin (IT), 4. Athens (GR), 5. Trikala(GR), 6. Upper Silesian-Zaglebie Metropolis (PL). Project starts in June 2019.

EIT Urban Mobility is dedicated to accelerating solutions that improve our collective use of urban spaces, while ensuring accessible, convenient, safe, efficient, sustainable and affordable multimodal mobility.

EIT Urban Mobility’s objective is to rethink urban spaces, overcoming fragmentation by integrating all urban mobility players – including cities and citizens – and increasing social inclusion and equality.

By accelerating the products, services and processes for cities, EIT Urban Mobility will reimagine collective and individual mobility, shaping it according to local needs, supporting communities and stimulating the economy.

GECKO

June 29, 2018

GECKO stands for "Governance principles and mEthods enabling deCision maKers to manage and regulate the changing mObility systems"

GECKO’s main goal is to support authorities with tools and recommendations for new regulatory frameworks to lead the transition to the new mobility era of cooperative, inclusive, competitive, sustainable and interconnected mobility across all modes, through evidence-based research. GECKO provides a holistic approach with innovative concepts, methodologies and forward-looking tools to enable this transition to take place, leading to new, adaptive and anticipatory regulatory schemes and balanced governance. GECKO is funded by the EC H2020 programme.

The aim of the She Drives KSA research project is to examine and analyse the travel behavior and activity patterns of women mobility in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia BEFORE and AFTERwomen are allowed to drive, and to identify the impacts of this decision on the aspects of sustainable development and traffic safety in the Kingdom.

MaaS4EU

End-to-End Approach for Mobility-as-a-Service tools, business models, enabling framework and evidence for European seamless mobility.

The main goal of MaaS4EU is to provide quantifiable evidence, frameworks and tools to enable the MaaS concept, by addressing challenges under four pillars: Business, End Users/Customers, Technology-Data and Policies. MaaS4EU is funded by the EC H2020 programme.

MaaS Maturity Index

The MaaS Maturity Index (MMI) is a framework and calculation tool developed to assess the readiness of metropolitan areas for the implementation of MaaS.  Various characteristics which affect the likelihood of a successful MaaS implementation are assessed to determine an aggregate score showing how ready a city is to implement MaaS.

 

The calculator can be used to demonstrate what improvements are needed to make a city ready for MaaS.  Scores can be compared across cities, showing where MaaS providers could have the greatest impact. 

Feasibility Study for "Mobility as a Service" concept for London – FS-MaaS

The objective of the FS-MaaS project is to propose the design of a Mobility as a Service (MaaS) concept for London, and examine its feasibility.

The feasibility study indicates that the introduction of MaaS-London will benefit both the supply and the demand side. It’s a feasible product that can well serve London transport market and contribute to London’s 2020 vision.

InoMobility - MaaS

The main objective of this project is to develop a state-of-the-art agent- and activity-based simulation framework to quantify the impact of new mobility services, technologies and MaaS (e.g. autonomous vehicles, on-demand mobility services, personalized mobility planning) with respect to travel habits, traffic congestion, transportation energy use and emissions.

 

InoMobility steps on the latest advancements in technology and focuses on representing the complex and dynamic interactions between demand and supply in different levels by providing a simulation tool in which different MaaS and new mobility services business models and operations can be tested and evaluated.

Mobility as a Service Survey

This is an on-line survey that has been designed specifically to explore the current travel choices of individuals and their preferences and reactions towards new mobility services and MaaS. This on-line survey has been applied in London and could be easily customised for any city.

London Mobility Survey

The London Mobility Survey is a smartphone based travel survey that aims study the travel habits of Londoners and their attitudes and preferences towards new mobility solutions and Mobility as a Service.

Integration of Car Sharing and Bike Sharing System: A case study of Taiyuan, China

This project proposes an integrated urban transport system based on car sharing and bike sharing for developing countries using a Chinese city as case study. It will forecast the benefit of such a system to energy savings and climate change mitigation.

Analysing Londoners’ Transitions from Motorised Modes to Cycling

The aim of this project is to analyse the demographic and trip characteristics of cyclists in London to identify the most promising population segments and areas that cycling policies could target.

Exploring the factors affecting Electric Vehicle Purchasing Behaviour in Greater London

This project investigates the factors affecting consumers’ electric vehicle (EV) purchasing behaviour.

By defining consumers’ preference factors, targeted corporate marketing and government policies can be developed to accelerate diffusion of EFV.
 

MOT tests and Vehicle Miles Travelled

This project provides a novel analysis framework for the spatial aspects of car travel, measured by vehicle miles travelled, extended to include a variable decomposition approach that captures potential asymmetries and hysteresis in a spatial setting.

The results provide support to the car use saturation hypothesis through both the negative VMT trend and the positive impact of motorisation rate that captures car dependence, rather than car use intensity.
 

Residential Location Choice and Transport Energy Demand

This project uses an integrated modelling approach to capture trade-offs between housing/domestic and transport consumption costs, developing a novel methodological framework to explicitly include energy demand.
