Urban Mobility Lab

Urban Mobility Lab

THE ONLY URBAN MOBILITY LAB IN EUROPE

Growth in urban travel needs is fast outpacing the development of transport infrastructure. As stakeholders ranging from city administrations and transport companies to telecom operators and shared mobility companies consider a variety of alternatives to current transportation, the need is to identify business strategies that enable sustainable integrated urban mobility.

Looking at the mobility system as a whole is necessary to make great leap in progress. Up until now, very little work has been done on how to integrate the technical, economic, social and policy considerations to create a viable mobility system that meets the dynamic needs of a changing world.    

Transpolis has been created to design and build a 200 acres urban mobility lab to innovate, test, showcase technologies and solutions from a wide range of strategic partners.

A SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE WITH MANY AMBITIOUS PROJECTS

Transpolis is a hub to design, test and showcase new technologies  through systemic innovation and international partnerships at the crossroads of  strategic activities : vehicles, energy, infrastructure and building, communication (IT, networks, IoT), e-commerce & delivery services.

Some topics and ideas under development : autonomous vehicle and connected cars, traffic management, vehicle tracking, EV charging infrastructures and supervision, tolling and congestion charging, delivery services, integrated mobility, urban lighting, internet of Things and M2M communications.

TRANSPOLIS has, as from now, developed a unique methodology and is equipped with specific tools for ADAS design (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), evaluation and validation for the whole transport industry.
