The H2020-funded HARMONY project aims to develop a new generation of harmonised spatial and multimodal transport planning tools that will enable metropolitan authorities to lead the transition to a low carbon new mobility era in a sustainable manner. The HARMONY model provides an integrated approach necessary for authorities which quantifies the multidimensional impact of various concepts, soft and hard policies on citizens’ quality of life, sustainability, economic growth, while identifying the most appropriate solutions and recommending ways to exploit advances in mobility concepts. The model suite is already linked to six EU metropolitan areas assisting research: Rotterdam, Oxfordshire, Turin, Athens, Trikala and Upper Silesian-Zaglebie Metropolis.
MobyX developed the HARMONY MS platform and advanced the MobyApp software as a service platform.
Frontier Future Mobility
The H2020 FRONTIER project develops, applies and tests the network and integrated traffic management strategies of the future, taking into account new types and modes of transport and connected automated vehicles (CAVs). Researchers will use data generated from real-time monitoring of the transportation system, knowledge generated by operators and decision-makers as well as simulation models to provide solutions for new mobility services and technologies. These systems will support proactive decision making to ensure a seamless transition to autonomous and integrated transport management for future mobility services. The three pilots will focus on: smart infrastructures and connected autonomous CAVs integration; multimodal mobility for passengers and freight cross-stakeholders collaboration; and network performance analysis for planning and policy making.
GREEN-LOG is a Horizon Europe-funded project which will develop Logistics-as-a service platforms for interconnected city logistics, automated delivery concepts using autonomous vehicles and delivery droids, cargo-bike-based innovations for sustainable micro-consolidation, and multimodal parcel deliveries integrating public transportation.
The approach is deployed and validated in five Urban Living Labs: Athens, Barcelona, Flanders (Gent, Leuven and Mechelen), Oxfordshire and Ispra. Three follower cities – Arad, Helsinborg, and Valga – will be involved in testing the transferability of the proposed innovations.
ExtremeXP proposes a new paradigm for data analytics
This paradigm consists of experimentation-driven analytics, to provide accurate, precise, fit-for-purpose, and trustworthy data-driven insights via evaluating different complex analytics variants, considering end users’ preferences and feedback in an automated way.The ambition is to provide capabilities for learning from experimentation to predict user requirements, profiling the user, and proactively generating the accurate analytics workflow towards more precise outcomes and personalized insights for decision making and focusing on the user experience, requirements, and needs and putting him in the center of the decision-making process.ExtremeXP will integrate cutting-edge research results from the domains of data integration, machine learning, visual analytics, explainable AI, decentralized trust, knowledge engineering, and model-driven engineering into a common framework.
SPINE’s vision is to accelerate the progress towards climate neutrality by reinforcing PT systems through their smart integration with new mobility services, sharing schemes, active transport modes, and micromomibilty. SPINE adopts an equity centred design thinking approach, leading the transition to a more efficient, sustainable, resilient, and inclusive PT system. A network of collaborative LLs is developed to foster transferability, while an intersectional view of the transport system users is applied. Four Lead City LLs in Antwerp, Bologna, Tallin and Las Palmas will be established, and a series of co-creation activities will take place where multiple stakeholders will be actively engaged in the development and demonstration of efficient, replicable, and socially acceptable innovative mobility solutions, advancing existing assets.
The SPINE approach involves the creation of (a) innovative simulation and Digital Twining (DT) tools, along with open data and behavioural models, that will allow the building of scenarios combining different mobility interventions (push and pull measures along with supporting policies) and the implementation of the most promising ones; (b) data-driven impact assessment models that will foster the twinning, transferability and adaptation of the successful solutions of the four LLs in seven Twining Cities – Barreiro, Valladolid, Zilina, Sibenik, Hrakleion, Gdynia and Rouen-. SPIRE sets a high ambitious plan for the co-design and implementation of 55 smart greens inclusive mobility solutions.
The unique mix of experienced transport engineers, Public transport Operators, computer scientists, data analysts, transport modelers, social scientists, urban planners, policy analysts, software providers, within our consortium assures the comprehensive approach to the challenges, scope, expected impact and the successful delivery of the project.
The objective of SUM is to transform current mobility networks towards innovative and novel shared mobility systems (NSM) integrated with public transport (PT) in more than 15 European Cities by 2026 reaching 30 by 2030. Intermodality, interconnectivity, sustainability, safety, and resilience are at the core of this innovation. The outcomes of the project offer affordable and reliable solutions considering the needs of all stakeholders such as end users, private companies, public urban authorities. SUM project will develop five pillars consisting of technological, co-creation, and policy tools to tackle the identified NSM barriers for a typical, car-focused family. These five pillars can increase the modal share of NSM via targeted push/pull measures and policy recommendations. SUM will introduce a federation of solutions including prediction, scheduling, integrated NSM-PT ticketing, and real-time NSM management. This created ecosystem will reduce the total door-to-door travel times using integrated NSM-PT. This can change the behavior of 34% of travellers using cars and 17% of travelers sceptic about using NSM. The partners in this diverse consortium have access to innovative tools and expertise making them uniquely positioned to tackle the barriers in 9 living labs and 30 organizations across Europe.
