After one and a half week’s data gathering and preparation phase, the Debrecen pilot concluded in a demonstration experiment. The public presentation of ONA was held in Piac street, Debrecen at 13:00h, on the 17th of November, 2022. During the full duration of the project, two different robots are...

A few days ago, on the 15th of November, one of the most important events in Urban Mobility took place in Barcelona: The Women in Urban Mobility project Annual Summit. This event, organised by CARNET and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), was the icing on the cake of the project. It gathered together the whole network of women (and men) that belong to the ecosystem of urban mobility, which seeks to create synergies between UM professionals...

The automotive and mobility sectors are developing rapidly. Several levels of disruption are making structural changes to the sector, such as new stricter emission standards and decarbonisation as part of the new concepts of more sustainable mobility, connectivity, and ongoing digitisation. All these changes have an impact on the professional future of workers throughout the value chain and across all the existing organisational levels. The new jobs that will emerge will require a combination of different skills...

Within the framework of LogiSmile, a project co-funded by EIT Urban Mobility, an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union, our autonomous delivery robot PLUTO is being piloted in the city of Hamburg starting on October 20. The robot will be tested on the homePORT, specifically at the south end of the old Elbtunnel, and will demonstrate an autonomous logistic concept for last-mile delivery. The demonstration will feature...

FlexCurb, a project co-funded by EIT Urban Mobility, an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union, and intended to improve logistics management, has introduced 4 living labs in 4 cities: Leuven, Funchal, Strasbourg and Toulouse with the objective to identify, collect and understand more about parking areas and solve problems occurring in those areas. This better understanding will help minimize conflicts over pedestrian zones and unwanted cargo...

During the launch event of two new pilots at the Milano Rogoredo station, developed within the EIT Urban Mobility’s #ChallengeMyCity Milan programme, a workshop to engage with the local citizens and get their feedback was conducted by CARNET on 4 October. The citizen engagement activity developed by CARNET, was aimed at evaluating the implementation of new innovative sustainable mobility services at the station; a secure bike parking area, installed by the start-up Don Cicleto, and a solar-powered...

In line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SODs), healthy and efficient mobility systems are pushed forward by public authorities and regulators. Environmental, social, and economic aspects might change the rules of the game in the mobility of the future, a historically highly regulated ecosystem. In response to these facts, most European cities are implementing Low Emission Zones (LEZ). Public authorities of Barcelona and its Metropolitan Area (AMB), have made a great effort to move towards...

The RideSafeUM project is entering the final phase of its first year of progress in which pilots will be conducted in three European cities The pilots will test a micromobility app and dashboard to improve rider safety and prevent accidents The project, led by CARNET, is co-financed by EIT Urban Mobility, an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union During the months of September to December, both...
