Smart Mobility for cities
Intelligent public transportation
The public transportation system is the lifeline of a smart city. It fills the city with life through a continuous and controlled flow of people and products and carries everybody to his or her destination. In an intelligent city, the development of the public transportation system is promoted because it provides the general public with basic services. If it is expanded city-wide and its efficiency is improved, public transportation make a significant contribution to the reduction of traffic congestion and emissions.
The individual can contribute to a more efficient and safer transport system with the help of intelligent traffic routing. Today, there are some smartphone apps on the market that provide drivers with traffic information in real time and other apps use the communication between vehicles and traffic infrastructure or that mediate ad-hoc shared-ride services that contribute to more efficiency and safety on the road. The areas of traffic routing and driver assistance offer even more development opportunities for individual traffic in the areas of information and communication technologies.
