Smart clean sustainable mobility

TRI staff have extensive experience in all areas relating to smart clean sustainable mobility.  This includes in particular Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) as well as non-technological solutions to more sustainable mobility, inter- and co-modality, and electric vehicles.  For instance, in the current (2015) CIVITAS DYN@MO project TRI is assisting Lund University, Sweden, in the evaluation of the implementation of innovative mobility services in Aachen (Germany), Gdynia (Poland), Koprivnica (Croatia) and Palma de Mallorca (Spain). 

TRI was co-ordinator of the recently concluded EU funded COMPASS project, which analysed the key drivers for future transport demand, how solutions based on ICT (Information and Computer Technology) can meet this demand while contributing to the decarbonisation of transport, and developed a handbook on ICT solutions for use by practitioners in the form of a web directory.  Another web directory, this time for best practice examples and suggested solutions, was also the key output of the EU ORIGAMI project, again led by TRI, which investigated technical solutions to improve co- and in particular inter-modality in long distance transport.

In the field of electric mobility, Edinburgh Napier University has joined hands with Edinburgh College and together they manage a fleet of 40 electric cars with the stock including four different makes/models:  Renault Zoe, Mitsubishi Ion, Nissan Leaf and Renault-Kangoo van.  The research has centred around six different themes - for more information go to http://www.civitas.eu/content/dynamo.
