The document “Innovation in energy management: Contribution of railways to sustainable mobility” analyses the role of innovation in energy management in infrastructure, rolling stock and operation, as well as future trends and applications.
Road transport is the most widely used means of travel in the EU. It is also essential to the economy in terms of its contribution to GDP, yet road transport is the leading cause of accidents, serious injuries from collisions and premature deaths in Europe.
Automated Vehicles are expected to transform the transport sector by contributing to reduce transport externalities and improving the mobility of people, which may depend on several influencing factors to their acceptance. Gender differences exist with regard to transport and mobility patterns, also
This Science for Policy Brief presents main trends in research and innovation in urban mobility and logistics in Europe. It is based on the recent JRC Science for Policy Report "Research and Innovation in Urban Mobility and Logistics in Europe" and makes use of the TRIMIS database. The Brief
Transport and mobility is one of the core areas which can help to achieve the goals set by the European Green Deal and the European Union’s digital strategy. While the green transition in transport is driven by the need to drastically reduce emissions and increase energy independence, the digital
The Science for Policy Brief presents main trends in public transport research and innovation in Europe. It is based on the recent JRC Science for Policy Report Public transport research and innovation in Europe. The assessment is based on the Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a powerful technology that will play a central role in mobility of the future. The breakthroughs achieved by AI systems in automated driving are contrasted by their higher complexity and opacity, potentially leading to safety and cybersecurity risks. The growing
Living Labs can support the co-creation of new mobility concepts to promote their public acceptance and subsequently a more sustainable and smarter mobility. This report presents the journey of implementing the Future Mobility Solutions Living Lab (FMS-Lab) at the European Commission’s Joint
Smart mobility systems and services and transport electrification have the potential to contribute to transport decarbonisation. Policy and innovation efforts have to focus on integrated transport strategies as part of wider smart and sustainable city strategies. They should take into consideration
Inspired by technological developments on connected mobility, this project aims to contribute to the EU priority “A Europe fit for the digital age” by exploring synergies between connected vehicles and smart infrastructure components for the fast and mobile assessment of the existing bridge stock.
