1.46 - Generation.Mobi – Social Network of Interactive Devices for a New Generation of Urban Mobility

Project Description

Generation.mobi is a Research & Development project that aims at developing and validating a dynamic mobility management system for new generation services. It is based upon the concept of social network of interactive bikes, which are interoperable with the city ecosystem.

As a result, Generation.mobi will lead to the creation of an integrated mobility management system that will include a network of interconnected devices (eg. Bikes) that will explore a wide range of societal challenges as identified within the scope of the European Horizon 2020 strategy. From a commercial point of view it is expected that disruptive new services will be generated aiming at the international urban mobility markets.Proj_1.46.jpeg

This project involves a consortia of 4 private companies and 1 University partner (FEUP) and is led by CEIIA. Within the University partner and under the leadership of IT (Institute of Telecommunications), CITTA holds a research sub-group focused on Mobility management and Urban Planning. CITTA’s role in this project consists in Mobility characterization studies in a number of target cities, which will involve the selection and classification of different dimensions of analysis and mobility profiles allowing among others: characterization of the transport supply and demand, analysis of the constraints of the transport system and mobility plans; analysis of collected data regarding sustainability of the mobility patterns based on the SenseMyCity app (in several application cases). Furthermore, it will also develop base research into the practical usability of this type of information (Big Data) for mobility management and planning practice, exploring ways of improving its added value.
