The current transportation systems are experiencing an evident and fast evolution, which is expected to disrupt the mobility landscape of the 2020s. The retrofit of traditional transportation methods by the integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), as well as the rapid consolidation of novel transportation modalities, such as car sharing or pooling, are leading to the completely novel concept of Smart Mobility. The convergence and coming together of autonomous and electric vehicles, mobile computing, Internet of Things and Blockchain technologies will create consistent added value and provide smart mobility innovations. These modernizations will improve the travel experience for millions of people and businesses every day.
The Apulia Region and its entrepreneurs are particularly involved and attentive in sustaining and investing in the evolution of the local transport ensuring the follow-up of the European guidelines. Up to now, the implementation of the Plan of the Regional Transport and of the Three-Year Service Plan have been fundamental tools for regional policies on mobility and have put the vision and objectives of Europe 2020 at the center of the program, developing a regional transport system for smart, sustainable and inclusive mobility.
This Workshop, counting on the interventions of local experts, aims then at offering cues of discussion on the technological scenarios, the infrastructures, the information and communication technologies for the smart mobility, as well as proposing arguments of debate regarding electric and unmanned vehicles and the evolution of logistics in the context of smart mobility.
Furthermore, the SMFC workshop provides an opportunity for Ph.D students and Postdoctoral researchers to present and discuss the most recent advances, ideas, experiences, and challenges in the field of Smart Mobility by means of posters presentations.
Program, Call for posters, Important Dates and info for the registration are available on SMFC web site.
