Technology’s impact in cities is indisputable. Society is more connected than ever before, enabling solutions to be developed more rapidly and implemented at a faster rate. New solutions for urban mobility are being deployed all over the world, but what are its impacts?
Understanding what are the impacts of new mobility solutions and what are sustainable ways to adopt them is vital in today’s world. Furthermore, with the advent of new technologies capable of pervasively sensing cities, we are now capable of finding new solutions for urban mobility that can be ubiquitously used.
For this reason, in U-Shift, one of our research focus is understanding what are the effects of technology in mobility patterns and how can technology be used to promote sustainable mobility behaviors.
