    • 2nd International EIBURS-TAIPS conference on:““““Innovation in the public sectorand the development of e-services””””Determinants and effects of infomobilityat the city-level1Davide Arduini, Marco Biagetti, Luigi Reggi, Paolo SeriEIBURS-TAIPS teampaolo.seri@uniurb.itUniversity of UrbinoApril 19th, 2013
    • Plan of the talkResearch questions: 1) developing a model to explore theinfluence of some urban characteristics on theprovision/diffusion of Infomobility services; 2) analysing therelationships between urban pollution and ITS development• Definition of Infomobility/Intelligent Transport Systems(ITS)2(ITS)• Literature review• Data and the econometric model• Results• Conclusion
    • Definition• The concept of Infomobility/Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), provided by theEuropean Commission (2003): "Intelligent Transport Systems: Intelligence at theService of Transport Networks“, include the following systems:1) Advanced information for users; 2) Traffic control, navigation surveillance and guidance; 3)Accident management; 4) Vehicle safety and control systems, as much as electronic payment andenforcement; 5) Operation of green zones/low emission zones; 6) Intermodality for bothpassenger and freight transport; 7) Interoperability standards, e.g. for ticketing3passenger and freight transport; 7) Interoperability standards, e.g. for ticketing• The availability and adoption of ITS/Infomobility applications not only provides newand flexible transport services but also a range of information services that have thepotential to increase the accessibility and usability of transport services, reduceinequalities and increase economic participation and access to public servicesThe combination of transportation accessibility, usability and availability culminatein the increased capacity of all citizens to participate in the local economy, accesspublic services and to be active members in their communityICT and Intelligent Transport Systems are improving all of these areas and arebreaking down geographical barriers as well
    • Literature review of Smart Cities (1/5)• An increasing literature (Caragliu, Del Bo, Nijkamp, 2011; Arribas, Kourtit, Nijkamp,2012; Deakin, 2012; Lombardi, Giordano, Farouh, Yousef, 2012) has highlighted thatthere are several urban characteristics which are described in relation to the concept“Smart City”: a) smart economy (related to competitiveness); b) smart people (relatedto human capital); c) smart governance (related to participation); d) smartenvironment (related to natural resources); e) smart living (related to the quality oflife)• “Smart City” is furthermore used to discuss the use of modern transport technologies4• “Smart City” is furthermore used to discuss the use of modern transport technologies(f) in everyday urban life (Komninos, 2008; Hollands, 2008; Alkandari et al., 2012)Intelligent transport systems/Infomobility contribute to the rational exploitation of existinginfrastructure without resorting to the establishment of new facilities: 1) improve theeconomic productivity of current and future systems; 2) environmental protection; 3) improvethe level of traffic safety; 4) increase the prosperity of travelers, commuters and residents; 5)increase the operational efficiency of the transportation system; 6) reduce commuting timeand cost; 7) predict the movement of traffic and events that may affect the future• These six features connect with traditional regional and theories of urban growth anddevelopment
    • Literature review of Smart Cities (2/5)Determinants of “Smart Cities” in the literatureUrbancharacteristicsIndicatorsSmarteconomyR&D expenditure; Employment rate in knowledge-intensive sectors; New businesses registered;GDP per employed person; Unemployment rate; % of employed in providing ICT services andproducts; etcSmartpeopleTop research centres, top universities; Population qualified at levels 5-6 ISCED; Share of peopleworking in creative industries; etc.5people working in creative industries; etc.SmartgovernanceExpenditure of the municipal per resident; Availability of new channels of communication for thecitizens (e.g. eGovernment, eHealth, etc.); Satisfaction with quality of public and social services;etc.SmartenvironmentAccumulated ozone concentration; Green space share; Efficient use of water, Efficient use ofelectricity; etcSmartlivingMuseums visits per inhabitant; Theatre attendance per inhabitant; Satisfaction with quality ofhealth system; Importance as tourist location; Overnights per year per resident; Poverty rate; etc.SmartmobilityPublic transport network per inhabitant; Broadband internet access in households; Traffic safety;Availability of ICT and modern and sustainable transport systems; etc.
    • Literature review of Smart Cities (3/5)• In sum, the application of Intelligent transport systems/Infomobility in “Smart Cities”can produce various benefits (Harrison and Donnely, 2010)Reducing resource consumption, notably energy and water, hence contributing to reductionsin CO2 emissionsImproving the utilization of existing infrastructure capacity, hence improving quality of lifeand reducing the need for traditional construction projectsMaking new services available to citizens, commuters and travelers, such as real-time6Making new services available to citizens, commuters and travelers, such as real-timeguidance on how best to exploit multiple transportation modalitiesImproving commercial enterprises through the publication of real-time data on the operationof city servicesRevealing how demands for energy, water and transportation peak at a city scale so that citymanagers can collaborate to smooth these peaks and to improve resilienceDrivers receive better information about traffic and road conditions and make decisionsabout which routes to follow

    • Aim of the paper• Drawing on Smart City’s framework, we aim to develop a model to explore theinfluence of some urban characteristics of “ Smart Cities ”””” on theprovision/diffusion of Infomobility services9• We aim to apply this framework to 140 European cities, employing an unusuallydetailed and statistically consistent dataset on public e-services at the city-level• We analyse the relationships between urban pollution and ITS development
    • Data collection (1/3)1) Urban Audit Dataset (source: Eurostat)• Aim: providing reliable information, comparable amongst 322 cities in 27 Member States, plus 47 citiesfrom Switzerland, Norway, Croatia and Turkey• Sample design: cities were chosen on the basis of the following criteria:the selected cities in each country should correspond to approximately 20% of the nationalpopulationthe participating cities in each country should represent about 20% of the population in thatcountry10countrythe participating cities should reflect a good geographic distribution within the country (peripheral,central)coverage should reflect a sufficient number of medium-sized cities (medium-sized cities having apopulation of 50000 – 250000 inhabitants, large cities with >250 000)Time coverage: five waves1989 - 1993; 1994 - 1998; 1999 - 2002; 2003 - 2006; 2007 – 2009Variables: nine different areas of variables have been defineddemography, social aspects, economic aspects, civic involvement, training and education,environment, travel and transport, information society, culture and recreation
    • Data collection (2/3)2) EIBURS-TAIPS Dataset (source: University of Urbino)• Aim: desk analysis conducted through website-surfing to monitor public e-serviceavailability provided by local public transport companies and municipalities at the citylevel (EU-15)• Sample design: 229 cities composing the EU15 subsample of the 322 (EU-27)monitored in Eurostat’s Urban Audit datasetTime coverage: 201211• Time coverage: 2012• Variables: two service categories have been considered, and data have been collectedadapting and integrating extant methodologiesITS/Infomobility (based on ITIC-Between methodology, 2010)eProcurement (based on IDC methodology, 2010)
    • Data collection (3/3)• ITS/Infomobility: service listUnit of analysis Local public transport companyPublic Informed Mobility Electronic services related to public transportation (bus, metro, trains, etc.)Online info to users while travellingPublic transport companies providing online information to users (e.g. waiting times,strikes, delays, failures, etc.)Online time table consultationPublic transport companies offering the possibility to consult the online timetable ofpublic transport network12ServicelistOnline travel planningPublic transport companies offering timetables with route planning (travel planner) onthe webOnline ticket purchase Public transport companies offering web based payment systemsPrivate Informed Mobility Electronic services related to private transportation (cars, trucks, etc.)Info to car drivers while travellingPublic transport companies providing online information to travelers about traffic orparkingElectronic road or parking toll Public transport companies offering a electronic ticketing system of parking spaces
    • The construction of Infomobility Composite Indicator (ICI)• The framework is based on ITIC-Between, 2010 and composed of 4basic indicatorsBasic indicatorService involved(see slide 12)VariableNo. of channels used to offer information services to publictransport users while travelling (call center, SMS, website, etc.)Online info to users while travelling info_users13No. of different ways to access to time tables of publictransportation (download, static webpage, travel planner offeredvia website, smart phone application, etc.)Online time table consultationOnline travel planningtimetablesNo. of different ways to purchase the ticket (smart card, website,mobile phone, etc.)Online ticket purchase ticketsNo. of channels used to offer travel info on parking and traffic tocar drivers (call center, SMS, website, etc.)Info to car drivers while travelling travel_infoNote: the service “Electronic road or parking toll” is not included in the CI since its variance is close to zero
    • The construction of Infomobility Composite Indicator (ICI)• The methodology for computing the index is based on the JRC-OECD Manual forconstructing composite indicators (OECD, 2008. pag. 89)• The weights are obtained through a Nonlinear Principal Component Analysis, which issuitable for qualitative variables.

    • Descriptive statisticsMax= Stockholm200818229 towns. 195 only theoretically available. Due to missing data of towns in some of these variables thenumber of obs. On which the econometric analysis is made goes down to 140. Still it is a very high figure
    • Econometric model: results (1/4)Positive effects are found for all of thesignificant regressors even though withdifferent p-values19Adjusted R2= 0.344P-values (+0.1 *0.05 **0.01 ***0.001)N=140!!! It is the first time that ananalysis of this kind is performed on sucha number of towns
    • Econometric model: results (2/4)• The provision of infomobility services is strongly related to the size of theEuropean cities (variable expressed in terms of total population in the city)external pressure on Local Public Transport Companies (LPTC) to improve services can beexpected to increase with the number of city inhabitantsthe perceived need for advanced communication tools between LPTC and citizens appears toincrease with size, hence with the physical and social distances to be covered within the territoryof the city in order to gain access to service providers20• Another important factor affecting the availability of Infomobility tools includethe economic structure of the European cities, with a positive correlation offirms and workers in knowledge intensive services (financial and businesssectors)• We observe that the availability of Infomobility services is affected by thepresence of other innovative actors in the same cityAmong these actors are the municipalities offering eProcurement servicesThis result proves that when a high number of innovators are located in a given area, knowledgespillovers will be facilitated and greater incentives are created that push less dynamic institutionsto enter the innovation race
    • Econometric model: results (3/4)• The presence of local ICT producers in the city is also positively correlated withInfomobility developmentLocal Public Transport Companies located in cities with higher shares of local ICT producers are ina better position to gain access to relevant technology, including both hardware and softwareWhere public and private markets overlap, as in the case of voice or image transmission over IPand value added services to business enterprises, a competitive presence of ICT serviceproviders stimulates the public organizations to expand the range of services offered through21providers stimulates the public organizations to expand the range of services offered throughtheir city networks• The level of pollution has an impact on the development of ITS (see next slides)• Finally, we find a positive correlation of Infomobility Index with the employmentrates in the European citiesIt appears that Local Public Transport Companies that are located in dynamic areas tend tointensify their provision of e-servicesEmployment rates are logically associated with the quality of social environment in which localadministrations operate and with the level and sophistication of demand for services expressedby citizens and firms
    • Econometric model: results (4/4)The model is well specified (Reset test is ok) and is robust to changes in the scale ofmeasurement (i.e. use of logs for some variables or percentage forothers), homoskedasticity is verified through Breusch-Pagan test, normality ofresiduals through the Shapiro-Wilk test and standard graphical procedures(pnorm qnorm).

    • Grouping Analysis (1/4)The nations of the 140 towns in the regressionThe nations of the 54 towns in the regression belonging tothe group with high pollution (days of ozone excess)25The nations of the 27 towns in the regression belonging to thegroup with high pollution (days of ozone excess) and highinfomobilityMore than 70% of the german citieswith high pollution developed a highlevel of infomobility, while the same istrue for less than 40% of the Italiancities and 30% of French cities withhigh pollution.
    • Grouping Analysis (2/4)High pollution - High infomobility High pollution – Low infomobility26Towns with High pollution and High infomobility show in average an higher levelof eProcurement, an higher level of employment rate and employment in thefinancial and business sectors. They are also slightly bigger. Town with Highpollution and low infomobility are in average more polluted.
    • Grouping Analysis (3/4)High pollution - High infomobility27
    • Grouping Analysis (4/4)High pollution - Low infomobility28
    • Conclusion• There is a significant heterogeneity in the infomobility diffusion betweenEuropean cities reflecting demand-pull considerations• We showed that innovative activities of Local Public Transport Companies(LPTC) also reflect interdependencies among a variety of actors, especiallythose active in the same city (municipalities and local ICT producers)• There are important contextual factors which complement demand andsupply factors as key drivers for innovation in the Infomobility services• German cities are very widely represented among those belonging to the29• German cities are very widely represented among those belonging to the“high infomobility-high pollution” group (15 out of 21), while Italian (andFrench) cities are much less so. More than 70% of the german cities withhigh pollution developed a high level of infomobility, while the same is truefor less than 40% of the Italian cities and 30% of French cities with highpollution national variables matter• This results illustrates that in the latter cases (Italy and France) infomobilityis carried out largely regardless of the actual need of cities to reducepollution. This might indicate that in many circumstances infomobilitypolicies are designed more at the national than at the local level, and hardlyreflect actual priority of municipalities to control pollution levels.
