3. Aims of Session
This session will explore the complexity of the urban
mobility challenge and discuss innovative solutions
required to achieve smart and connected urban
1. What are the challenges created by the existing city transportation system
(e.g., social, economic, environmental costs)? Are there lessons to be learnt
from the experiences of CUD?
2. What roles do ICT play in creating a healthy and efficient transportation
system? What is the new model of intelligent operation? What are some
critical success factors from a technology perspective?
3. What strategic approaches help achieve social and environmental objectives?
How can technological innovations contribute to develop a new culture for
smart connected urban mobility? What are good or bad practices?
4. what are the strategic enablers for sustainable urban mobility? How can
existing systems be changed to support sustainability objectives?
4. Smart Connected Urban Mobility
Many cities around the world face urban mobility issues such
as increased road congestion, wasted time due to traffic
delays, and increased energy consumption, resulting in more
carbon emissions. As cities grow and change rapidly, motor
vehicle use increases and traffic flow varies just as quickly,
creating, or worsening, severe problems.
Innovative solutions enabling smart new services based on
information and communications technology (ICT) can help
cities address these issues by providing alternatives in
combination with other solutions. Smart and connected urban
mobility will encourage city leaders to rethink the notion of
space in general, as people find new connections between
physical and virtual places.

6. Smart Connected Urban Mobility –
Breakout Session’s Expected Outcome
Principles: Smart Connected Urban Mobility
Allows people and goods to move intelligently, responsively,
resiliently and safely while respecting the environment
Vitalizes cities and economies creating a new culture of
healthy urban living
Utilizes the network as the urban services platform for
provisioning innovative services to Citizens, Agencies, and
Private Sector stakeholders
Enables cities to give more power of choice into the citizen’s
hands, along with gives more power of human and transport
Enables cities to make data driven decisions that maximize
investment, continuously improve offerings over time, and
encourage the utilization of alternatives to road travel, whether
smart work or eco-friendly transportation options
