Smart Cities and the Future of Transportation

The Role of Intelligent Transportation Systems in the Urban Transformation

NR_ResearchIconsSmartCities200px_ICON_0116The availability of a clean, efficient and affordable transportation system is one of the defining goals of any smart city.  However, many cities today are facing challenges to implementation of comprehensive “smart mobility” programs, including securing financing, dealing with legacy infrastructure; managing large quantities of data, and piecing together splintered agency responsibility for the various sectors in a city’s transportation system.  At the same time, new forms of mobility are becoming top priorities for city managers as dense urban clusters emerge and knowledge workers, freed from geographical limitations for their jobs, place livability high on their lists of criteria for choosing where they will live.  Clean, safe, affordable, and sustainable transportation often ranks near the top of these lists.

Featuring research director Eric Woods and senior analyst Lisa Jerram, this webinar reviews the transportation challenges facing cities, and provides details on innovative intelligent transportation technologies being deployed, including citywide real-time traffic management systems, sensor-based parking management tools, and advanced public transit routing and scheduling systems.  The webinar highlights some of the cities that have implemented smart transportation solutions, and also explores roles of city managers and planners, local and regional governments, vendors, and technology developers in integrating these emerging systems with other transportation modes.

  • Urban transportation congestion
  • The Smart City Movement
  • Intelligent Transportation Systems
  • Smart EV charging
