Shaping future cities

  1. 1. How planning and new technologies will shape the future of our cities<br />Dr. Luis G Willumsen<br />Budapest, GerbeaudHáz, 4th February 2010<br />
  2. 2. Measures for Liveable European Cities<br />PERSPECTIVES<br />
  3. 3. Measures for Liveable European Cities<br />Transport Planning: meeting emissions targets<br />
  4. 4. Measures for Liveable European Cities<br />Transport Planning<br />
  5. 5. Measures for Liveable European Cities<br />Core, long term schemes: metro, toll road<br />Flexible Transport Planning<br /><ul><li>Uncertainty and risk can be mitigated with flexibility, guidance and quick response interventions
  6. 6. Distinguish major schemes from more flexible interventions</li></ul>Semi-flexible schemes: HOT lanes, Bus Rapid Transit<br />Short term guidance: pricing, bus services, demonstration schemes<br />To provide flexible, quick interventions...<br /><ul><li>Regular updating of models with current information is essential
  7. 7. Not all aspects of transport are modellable
  8. 8. Travel behaviour does change and can be encouraged in the “right direction”</li></li></ul><li>Measures for Liveable European Cities<br />Payment methods<br />NEW TECHNOLOGY MOVES FAST<br /><ul><li>Smartcards, tags, mobile phones are used to pay securely and quickly
  9. 9. This facilitates refined pricing of services (time of day, advance booking, congestion)
  10. 10. .....but distances use from payment
  11. 11. New, and disruptive, technologies are changing the transport landscape, solving some problems and creating new opportunities
  12. 12. The way people relate to the world around us is changing
  13. 13. Information,
  14. 14. knowledge,
  15. 15. modelling,
  16. 16. participation,
  17. 17. payment methods,
  18. 18. environment;
  19. 19. Are all affected by new technology</li></ul>Location Services<br /><ul><li>We know where you are!
  20. 20. SmartPhone Apps provide an interesting source of Augmented Reality (AR) services
  21. 21. We increasingly interact with the world assisted by them
  22. 22. This will help public (and private) transport</li></ul>Sensors<br /><ul><li>Our world is increasingly full of cheap sensors
  23. 23. CCTV, even on board
  24. 24. Phones, GPS, Bluetooth devices all leave a real time electronic footprint
  25. 25. These can be anonymised safely
  26. 26. And used as “probes” and, in the future, to build Origin Destination matrices</li></li></ul><li>Measures for Liveable European Cities<br />Mobile Phone based Location Services<br /><ul><li>Facilitated by LBS, GPS and compass features
  27. 27. Always connected to Internet
  28. 28. The world around us is increasingly populated by information</li></ul>Public Transport real time information<br />Augmented Reality<br />Browsers providing augmented information on reality based on location and direction of camera: LAYER<br />
  29. 29. Measures for Liveable European Cities<br />Location data for TRANSPORT<br />Cell location data can be used to generate trip matrices with accuracy depending on the overhead the operator is willing to incur. <br />Spanish Bitcarrier has a “listening” device to track mobile phones, Bluetooth and GPS unit within a 42 metre radius and anonymise it. Useful to measure speeds, identify bottlenecks and generate trip matrices<br />Tracking mobile phones NW England from cell data<br />BITCARRIER sensors<br />
  30. 30. Measures for Liveable European Cities<br />Conclusions<br />
  31. 31. Thank you<br />
