How data and co-creation enables the connected city networks of the future
With data growing into its burgeoning role as a new kind of currency, and technology driving change at a pace that few organisations can keep up with on their own, how will a more collaborative, co-creation-based approach better enable the future of urban transport?
In the final episode of this three-part series, we aim to develop a framework for co-creation in the transport sector and finally answer whether we're ready for the future of getting from A to B.
The transport network, connected
If transport is what currently connects our cities and citizens, then connected transport will connect our smart cities.
It will offer whole new opportunities, platforms, mediums, and formats by which people will interact with the services they use.
In this episode, we explore how smart urban environments will incorporate multimodal, MaaS solutions, and the role connectivity will play in this. We also examine what all of this means for the transport end users: the citizens and city visitors themselves.
The smart city, citizen, and passenger
When people envision the city of the future, it inevitably comes with images of towering glass structures glinting in the sun, criss-crossed by flying vehicles gliding effortlessly through the sky.
But is that really what a smart city will look like? It’s unlikely, to say the least. With transport models moving from ownership to usership, and accessibility increasingly defining the mobility options of the future, the traditional vision of a transport utopia is changing.
In the first episode of our new series on urban mobility we explore what our transport needs are now, and how they will change in the future.
We convened a panel of experts to discuss the vital role transport will continue to play in shaping city spaces for the people who inhabit and visit them, and how transport providers and city authorities can best accommodate the full mix of passengers – including workers, commuters, students, families and tourists.
