Waymo’s mission is to make it safe and easy for people and things to move around. Their aim to bring fully self-driving technology to the world that can improve mobility by giving people the freedom to get around, and save thousands of lives now lost to traffic accidents. Fully self-driving vehicles hold the promise to improve road safety and offer new mobility options to millions of people. Whether they’re helping people run errands, commute to work, or drop off kids at school, fully self-driving vehicles hold enormous potential to transform people’s lives.
Community-based parking is the connected solution for finding available parking spaces on the street quickly. Via sensors and connectivity hardware, vehicles identify available spaces as they drive past. Drivers looking for parking benefit from the data acquired by the community, and can be guided to available spaces in a more rapid, convenient, and precise manner using information displayed to them in real time. Instead of a time-consuming search, vehicles can proceed directly to available spaces.
How do I get the fastest from A to B? When does the next bus or train leave? Are there delays or disabilities on the track? How do I get to my appointment in time?
Answers to these and other questions can be found live on your smartphone. With the VOR AnachB app, your smartphone becomes a personal, multimodal route planner for the whole of Austria!
VOR AnachB is the joint mobile, multimodal route planner from ITS Vienna Region and the Verkehrsverbund Ost-Region (VOR) based on the Verkehrsauskunft Österreich (VAO).
We use the power of mobile and open transport data to help humans survive and master them. We’re also reinventing the bus for the smart city era. The ultimate transport app, built for commuters and their daily needs. A to B directions that humans actually use in cities, comparing multimodal options in real-time. We need transport to operate smarter and react to demand in real-time. So we’re building our own services and reinventing the bus for the smart city era.
Lilium enables you to travel 5 times faster than a car by introducing the world’s first all-electric vertical take-off and landing jet: an air taxi for up to 5 people. You won’t have to own one, you will simply pay per ride and call it with a push of a button. It’s our mission to make air taxis available to everyone and as affordable as riding a car. Quiet electric vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) is the technology that will change travel forever. It enables you to access city centres with an aircraft.
In a rapidly urbanising world cities need to become smarter to respond to citizen needs and to reduce their environmental footprint. GrowSmarter brings together cities and industry to integrate and demonstrate ‘12 smart city solutions’ in energy, infrastructure and transport, to provide other cities with valuable insights on how they work in practice and opportunities for replication.
The City Hall delimited a sustainable high-tech zone (smart street) where to implement a series of innovative measures. The result of the job done, together with ten Catalan ICT companies, was the implementation of a guided vehicle parking, an intelligent garbage refuse collection point, a street lighting sensitive to presence, an irrigation system dependent of the humidity levels and a pedestrian crossing equipped with lighted sensors, among others.
Aurora is a public test ecosystem created to ensure intelligent and automated transport as well as solutions for road maintenance and asset management to meet the requirements of all conditions. The public test area is open for all organisations interested. It allows gathering first-hand information on how to develop both the physical and digital infrastructure to serve the needs of high-performance future transportation.
The Smarter Urban Dynamics (SUD) team at the IBM Research - Ireland focuses on developing analytics and tools to better understand and optimize the urban dynamics. This team develops research around three areas:
• Leveraging digital traces from mobile devices to gain an insight in why, how and when we travel. Using this information, mobility demand can be predicted and transport resource capacity accordingly allocated, offline or in real-time.
Huawei Smart Transport Solution takes full advantage of "fast, efficient, safe, and convenient" highways with an ICT-based digital highway platform, carrying data, voice, and video services. This provides road monitoring to ensure a secure, reliable, and efficient highway system.
