Are Cities Automation Ready?

Will our cities change for the better if automated vehicles hit our city streets? Will they indeed improve safety and efficiency, or rather the opposite? Will they reduce car ownership and dependency or lead to even more kilometers driven and further urban sprawl? How automated do we want our future public transport to be? Cities should be setting the rules of the game today for what may be arriving tomorrow. “Automation-readiness” should not be understood as an endorsement of AVs and their impacts, but rather as an empowerment of local authorities to critically review the anticipated technological changes and shape the future according to their expectations. This session will discuss the opportunities and potential drawbacks linked to introducing automated vehicles in the urban environment.

Panel

Multimodal moves

Only by both physically and digitally integrating public transport with other sustainable modes such as active travel and shared mobility, will we be able to offer citizens a range of alternatives that together can compete with the private car. How are cities creating multimodal and intermodal infrastructures, such as interchanges and mobility hubs, that bring those modes physically together and allow citizens to seamlessly combine them? And will MaaS be the digital counterpart that integrates these different options for the users and nudges them to the most sustainable modes? Or will it only make mobility more expensive and favour those options that generate revenue but are not necessarily the most sustainable? And how can cities capitalize on the vast amount of data being generated by new mobility services, to better understand the impact on the overall ecosystem, and plan their policies accordingly? This and more will be discussed in the Multimodal Moves session.

Mobility coffee : a conversation with Buenos Aires

The Respacing Revolution

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a disruptive impact on sustainable urban mobility, in good and bad terms. On the good side, it has led to the accelerated reallocation of space in favour of active travel, something which was long overdue. Especially cities with sustainable urban mobility plans in place have good chances of making these temporary interventions permanent over time, as they were already part of a long-term overarching vision. Urban space is scarce and valuable, but it is also a very powerful tool that cities are in charge of. By giving more space to certain modes or taking it away from others, local authorities can really decide which transport options they would like to prioritise or not in the city of tomorrow. This session brings together political leaders which show the courage to contest the legacy of decades of car-centric planning and are giving the streets back to the people and explores the concept of the 15’ City which is gaining ground.

Governing Innovation, Innovating Governance

FOMO is never a good reason for a city to engage in innovation. Embracing technology just for the sake of it, is not what constitutes a smart city. Urban mobility innovations and new technologies do make sense if they help to solve the transport-related challenges that cities need to tackle, whether they are environmental, social, economic, or safety-related. The governance of innovation can indeed help to align public and private sector interests and optimize the potential of new solutions in a way that the opportunities brought by them are maximized, but also negative externalities are mitigated. At the same time, there is a need for governance frameworks to become more agile and for regulatory approaches to strike the right balance between allowing innovation to thrive and making it policy responsive. As always, cooperation is the way forward, and this panel will zoom in on how both the public and private sector keep the conversation going and continue to explore partnership models that benefit both sides and align interests.

The fireside chat will focus on its comprehensive and holistic vision to use cycling to transform the city into a more inclusive, liveable and attractive place for residents, businesses and visitors.

 

ESG – Moving Mobility

Mobility is a fundamental human need and significant determinant of economic growth. ESG concerns, expressed both through traditional regulatory structures and through financial markets, are an increasingly significant aspect of the evolving mobility landscape. This panel will explore robust impact of ESG concerns on the mobility revolution. Topics explored will be environmental concerns as they apply to energy use and emissions not only in the “drive chain” of mobility platforms but also in supply chains; concerns about equitable access to new mobility platforms, and the impact of mobility changes on a variety of societal stakeholders. The role of government regulation and financial markets will be discussed for each aspect of the mobility revolution.

Smart mobility at the service of territories

Smart mobility must spread in all territories: but do all organisations conceive it the same way and what are the different means to promote it? Definitions and parameters vary depending on the different actors. Field experiences show that smart mobility involves many expectations, needs and challenges. For sure, it will be a fundamental issue in the next 5 or 10 years : but it needs to be addressed today.

15-minute delivery in the 15-minute city

From Paris to Seattle to Melbourne, many cities around the world are following a new planning model of 15 minute cities emphasizing walkability and accessibility. It aims to bring different land uses into a single area with a goal that residents of the city are able to meet most daily needs (school, office, shopping, park, bank etc.) that are reached within 15 minutes by walking, cycling and or using public transport from home. It would require collaborative planning efforts and land use policy reforms to allow denser and compact development. While the idea of a 15-minute city is on its way to adoption by many cities, an unprecedented boom has been seen in grocery delivery companies promising 15-minute delivery. Over the last year, there has been a rapid rise of 15-minute grocery delivery services launched across cities in the United States and Europe with the COVID-19 as an enabling factor. With low or no delivery fees, these companies are changing the way we shop, providing convenience for customers. These delivery companies are equipped with efficient algorithm and centrally located “ghost” stores to allow them to fulfill the needs of customers. This panel will discuss the pros and cons of both the concept of the 15-minute cities and 15-minute delivery services – if and how they can co-exist in the ultra-fast, technology- oriented modern society. Both models aim to bring goods and services closer to home, but while 15-minute city focuses on improving street life and supporting community engagement, the effect of the 15-minute delivery is still too early to tell whether the concept enhances or hinders community life. As the popularity of the new service rises, city officials will have to decide whether the service is a nuance or complements the 15-minute city concept.

Moving Ahead with Public Transport

The pandemic has had a strong impact on the public transport sector. It has accelerated its evolution and its redefinition. It has also highlighted its key role to support cities and people during the toughest times. Public transport has enabled Mobility for Life and is today more than ever a key driver of urban development to address some of the main challenges cities are facing.
Our sector is striving to support dynamic urban economies, become more resilient, address the climate crisis and support social inclusion.
For this purpose, it is advancing systems and services with innovation, leveraging the benefits of the digital transformation, and further working on the efficient integration of mass public transport and all shared mobility services in their urban environment.

Community success story: putting car-sharing on the map & advancing travelers’ information together

It has been said for a long time that to build MaaS solutions to support sustainable mobility for all, trust between stakeholders was key. Before smart contracts, data sharing agreements, and/or legal steps towards more open mobility data, we would like to focus on the foundation of trust: different stakeholders joining the same discussion in a constructive and respectful way.
This panel’s aim is to shed some light on community success stories in the realm of shared mobility. We will tell you all about how we, as a community:
put car-sharing on the map by extending GBFS; made sure that the extension of NeTEx to new modes was interoperable with GBFS.
These two successes are the results of a community of French and international stakeholders coming together to solve a common problem. Their fruitful collaboration has paved the way for the mobility of tomorrow.
Let’s learn from each other by hearing out their perspectives on building trust to advance sustainable mobility.

Mobilizing innovation to meet the challenges of the mobility sector: what action should the State take?

Self-service e-scooters in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (Paris Region) : who are the users?

In May 2021, SQY implemented its service of electric e-scooters, operated by TIER. Being the first peri-urban area launching a bid in France, we had the intuition that an e-scooter service could be a sustainable mobility solution addressing the needs of displacement in SQY, specially for the the first/last kilometer. It turned out right : the service meets a great success with more than 30 000 users and 500 000 trips after six months. But we wanted to know more : who are the users of the service, how it changed their mobility habits in articulation with the other modes, etc.? Here are the results of a customer survey.

De nouvelles applications permettant de réaliser des trajets basés sur de la mobilité multimodale ( ne citons que CityMapper) auxquelles viennent s’ajouter de nouveaux moyens de transport tels que les vélos sans station d’accueil et les scooters, voitures et trottinettes en libre-service. Le transport urbain connaît une évolution majeure qui implique des besoins en termes de disponibilité des données pour alimenter l’abondance d’applications de transport, pour fournir aux agences gouvernementales de meilleures informations sur l’utilisation de leurs infrastructures de transport, et bien sûr pour améliorer les services eux-mêmes.
Opendatasoft fournit une infrastructure de données aux opérateurs de transport en Europe. Keolis, la RATP, et des opérateurs nationaux comme la SNCF et les CFF utilisent notre plateforme pour publier et partager des données dans des formats interopérables. De nombreuses utilisations et réutilisations de ces données peuvent être faites afin d’améliorer l’efficacité des services ou en créer de nouveaux pour les citoyens.  Dans chaque cas, les données peuvent être utilisées soit par l’opérateur lui-même, soit par des partenaires externes. Elles constituent une ressource essentielle pour la collaboration, entre les services ou à travers l’écosystème.
Nous serons accompagnés de Bordeaux Métropole pour échanger sur le sujet.

Keep your communities, cities and states moving safely and efficiently with smart automobility insights

Delivering smarter mobility has become one of the key topics for cities and governments – poised to deliver citizens with safer, greener and more efficient mobility, and building infrastructure that adapts to shared usage. The advent of large amounts of automobility data from connected cars in the European market has enabled the opportunity to facilitate the decision making and the economic viability of infrastructure projects, as well as manage efficiently the exploitation of “automobility” in a multimodal context. Based on its intensive experience of working daily with many infrastructures, civil engineering and municipalities in the US, Wejo will expose how data science, combined with proper privacy management and visualization tools can help change the way citizens live, work and travel in a metropolitan, urban or rural environment.

How to electrify bus fleets

Nous visons mieux que l’automobile au quotidien, les fameux 10-50 km que l’on fait au quotidien pour aller travailler, faire les courses, pratiquer nos loisirs, voir nos amis, véhiculer nos enfants en particulier dans les zones péri- urbaines ou rurales où les alternatives à la voiture n’existent pas : 10 fois moins couteux, 10 fois plus durable, 10 fois plus léger, 10 fois plus simple et 10 fois moins puissant pour la même vitesse moyenne.
L’eXtrême Défi est construit pour rassembler et développer une large communauté. En travaillant collectivement et en sortant d’une logique pure de compétition, il s’agit de créer une taille critique, de mutualiser des composants, des parties, des sous-ensembles, mais aussi de nouveaux métiers, outils et formations.
Nous appelons des candidats à nous rejoindre mais aussi des partenaires (territoire, industriel, laboratoire) qui ont des compétences et ressources à apporter aux candidats et qui ont envie que ces véhicules se développent !

Hydrogen mobility: how to innovate and gain in sustainable mobility?

The transport sector is the leading emitter of greenhouse gases, it alone accounts for more than 30% of CO2 emissions in France. Road transport is responsible for 96% of these emissions, more than half of which comes from private vehicles, making it the most polluting sector. This is why France is aiming to end the sale of new passenger cars and light commercial vehicles using fossil fuels by 2040. New behaviors and new energies must therefore be adopted. Hydrogen is now seen as a complementary solution to electric mobility, could it really help decarbonize and be synonymous with sustainable mobility?

Day 2

Bike sharing is dead, long live Augmented Bike Networks

Cycling’s contribution to achieving a lasting green recovery that benefits everyone

This presentation will highlight what cities, regions and countries have been doing to capitalise on the opportunities presented by the pandemic to make their cities more cycling-friendly. It will also explore what more needs to happen from a policy and investment perspective to create more cycling-friendly cities that can deliver the benefits that citizens want: Green mobility, cleaner air, improved health, less congestion and noise pollution, more liveable cities and towns, better greener leisure and tourism options, more vibrant local economies and more inclusive societies.

Delivered by bike! Decarbonised urban logistics, ready and waiting

Cargo bikes are increasingly part of the urban logistics orchestra. Amazing innovations in cargo bike design and technology mean cycling logistics is fit and ready for this very demanding industry. Many well-run businesses around Europe are proof of the potential for sustainable transport. However, there are still many miles to go to reach carbon neutral, decarbonized urban logistics. Richard Armitage, head of ECLF and Tom Assmann, head of RLVD, will discuss how cycle logistics can ride those miles fast enough to become the next standard for urban transport.

Cycling for Everyone: Understanding the Role of Human Infrastructure

Cycling for Everyone: Understanding the Role of Human Infrastructure This talk will explore findings from research that underscores the importance of behaviour change and transport cultures in the promotion of cycling. Lucas Snaije will use the framework of “Human Infrastructure” to share insights and strategies that support and allow the uptake of cycling for all populations, with a focus on young children and their caregivers.

Multimodal mobility: Should safety be a privilege?

The Cycling ecosystem in Europe: taking stock of the 2020-2021 developments and looking at future trends

Future Mobility Change Makers

Personal transportation has favoured personal vehicle ownership for decades resulting in congestion, poor air quality, and a financial burden for many. It’s high time we change that. For that to happen we need stop doing what we’ve been doing for so long. We need a community of change makers that think outside the rules and come up with new ways of doing things. And for that we need a cross-pollination across sectors and different viewpoints: that’s where a lot of change can happen. This session is part keynote, part panel. We’ll introduce you to 8 change makers from around the world that tackle transportation problems differently: from more sustainable logistics, to electric infrastructure management to urban planning, shared mobility for every Body and reducing sexual harassments, this session will leave you inspired to become part of the movement of changing the status quo in transportation.

Pedaling into the future: How can we ensure cycling and micromobility become embedded as preferred and safe modes of urban transport?

Several cities across Europe and worldwide have been facing an increase in the number of cyclists and other light mobility vehicle users in recent years. Gathering local authorities, data providers and practitioners to the discussion, iRAP and Autonomy Paris want to debate the challenges and strategies to guarantee that the cycling revolution will be safe. The main topics of discussion will be the barriers to implementing safe cycling infrastructure and the potential applications of new data sources and risk assessment tools like CycleRAP to help cities continue to drive a safe shift.

A journey through the brain towards more sustainable transport: the need for multimodal planning

Lessons from the world’s most digitalized fleets – Shared fleets

Shared mobility leads the way in the fleet industry for fleets that have undergone digital transformations. These fully digitally accessible fleets are adopting technology that moves towards the creation of a self-managing fleet. In this session you will learn: – How successful shared mobility solutions have grown revenues – Using automation to create a self-managing fleet – Using keyless technology for digital business transformations

Deploying automated mobility in public transport

This session will gather experts from industry and academia to report on the learnings from on-going pilots of Automated Mobility. It will address challenges addressed by these pilots, from safety requirements to stakeholders involvement. The answers to these challenges will be grounded in the insights from the French project SAM as well as the European funded project SHOW, which is currently the largest initiative on deployment of Automated Mobility in Europe.

Job creation and security: the virtuous circle of micromobility

From motorists to mobilists: How shared mobility is shaping the new paradigm for local transportation

Ownership is questioned in a world where shared mobility is extremely popular, especially with users that cherish the option of inter modality. Troopy’s goal is to remove ownership constraints while proposing a responsible offer. The new value proposition that Troopy offers is to create long-term value with convinced users that can travel in a responsible and secured way. Since Troopy is deeply convinced that offering inclusive, secure and ecologically responsible products & services are part of the duties of a company, it pushes for an extended product lifecycle and affordable mobility.
