Here are 5 emerging technologies that get our vote for having some serious potential. It is a question of how we achieve it. The bottom line is that the cost incurred may turn out to be higher if governments and business do not work harder together on what is, after all, an issue of crucial importance for society. In the U. TIDE is actively supporting 15 committed cities to develop implementation scenarios for innovative urban transport measures, setting the example to an even wider group of take-up candidates. Top 7 Mobility and Transport Innovations From Top 7 Mobility and Transport Innovations From Best of From self-driving shuttle services to a parking space rental app, here are our favourite mobility and transport innovations from the past year.

Some research has supported this position, [30] but the measurement of benefits and costs is a complex and controversial issue. According to the company, EyeDrive saves the user 4. Implementing congestion charging leads to real or perceived gains for some and to losses for others, with the precise distribution dependent on the details of the scheme. Second, a pricing system based on rules, such as adapting tolls to different speeds and times, can be easier to accept than systems where prices are decided on less transparent policy processes. Marketing research as optimisation tool in public transport Marketing research is widely used in the business sector.

And we cannot reduce this without new instruments and especially technology. Sensors, data, and smart algorithms are optimising routing, parking and the flow of traffic. Revenues and revenue risks are taken over by the public authority. Three years after that, the company claimed that a Tesla vehicle will be able to drive from New York to Los Angeles on its own. The development of transport and society are inescapably interlinked. But down here, underneath the ground, I've got all the space I want.

Increased transparency Back in the days when passengers used cash to pay for their commute, there was no way of actually tracking the money that was being collected on any bus route and any point. So clearly, the transport sector must reduce the carbon intensity of travel.

At any rate, subsidies are useless when political commitment, carbon pricing, standards and other key policy elements are lacking. Sometimes a ticket has to be validated, e. The aim of the consultation process was to find innovative measures for each thematic cluster that have a high innovation degree on the one hand and high potential for large-scale and mainstream implementation in the coming years on the other hand.

A key success factor is the proper development of a contract, focused on motivating an operator to deliver optimal levels of quality — features that customers desire and are willing to pay for.

Transport has a rich tradition of both technical and policy innovation. First, offering alternatives improves acceptance: just like there is usually little resistance to new products as long as no one is forced to buy them, congestion charges are more easily accepted when alternative travel options are offered.

Instead of just creating good framework conditions, governments may need to get more directly involved, not by muscling in on private initiatives, but by co-operating more closely with private investors, innovators and other actors.

Redefining Biking with Bikeshares and E-bikes Even ignoring the environmental and health benefits of biking over driving, it is becoming increasingly difficult to justify the use of a motor vehicle over a bicycle for short-range commuting and errand-running. Indeed, the modern Mercedes has a smaller engine and is ten times more powerful than its counterpart, the Mercedes Within the new city governance model, BKK is a new entity between the local government and transport providers and operators.

Revenue, profit and subsidies[ edit ] Main article: Subsidy Governments frequently opt to subsidize public transport for social, environmental or economic reasons. Technical reliability is not yet assured. Technological change is therefore crucial. Innovation can save costs and can help to reach urban policy goals.
