Transportation systems across the world have not yet come to grips with the reality of energy supplies, environment as well as of limited land space for building more roads for ever larger number of vehicles to find their way out of problems of traffic congestion. In single or low occupancy vehicles, more people have little choice but to drive. With traffic congestion, tortuous parking conditions, poor accessibility for a large cross-section of elderly population and others who do not own a vehicle or can drive them alone, road accidents and many other problems, existing transportation scenario, across the world, in varying degrees is in a disarray.
What is it ?
MobilityXS is not a new brand of coffee. It is only similar in its effect.
It is refreshing.
Some of the most astounding problems of our times relate to our ability to meet transportation needs for people and for goods.
MobilityXS is as refreshing in its approach to overcome the psychological inertia that inhibits use of diverse technologies and management techniques to create a new system for our transportation needs, as a hot cup of the brew is to a bad headache or to the morning after hang over.
In a path-breaking approach, MobilityXS utilises existing technologies in communication, location, computing time and continual advancement in size, capacity and costs of these devices, and in materials and construction technologies.
Similarly management techniques such as pay-as-you-use principle; reward and compensation for services rendered by users to the system - such as quality driving, trading of empty seats, unused parking space etc.; reporting of public property damage, inferior quality roads, traffic rule evasion etc.
Coffee brews conversation and connection. It is said to stimulate bright ideas. Many a raging issue are discussed and deals struck over cups of coffee. MobilityXS aims to connect people in a variety of new ways.
It brings them together on time and faster (so that the coffee does not get cold). It facilitates conversation by allowing them to choose their favored co-traveler or connects them through communication networks, even while they are traveling. It offers them choice to drive with compensation and reward or to take a ride, on a longer trip on the Expressways at high speeds on Heavy, Multi-fuel Vehicles (HMVs).
For shorter trips in and around neighborhoods, they have choices to take a Light Electric Vehicle (LEVs)- like a rickshaw, golf-cart, cybercar or a velotaxi - that will be primarily charged with renewable energy sources - or to ride a bicycle - personalized and serviced by a service provider allowing it to ride as far as it is comfortable and convenient to you or to just take a walk on the Streets - uninterrupted by any HMV.
LEVs will be available at short distances that you can also call for a pick up service from your starting point.
In carefully demarcated zoning arrangement, slow moving modes - walking, cycling and LEVs - and the fast moving modes - HMVs such as cars, vans, light truck, buses, heavy trucks, trailers etc. have mutually exclusive access to Streets and Expressways respectively.
