  3. 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 mobility. 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? 3
  4. 4. Smart Connected Urban Mobility Background  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. 4

  6. 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 asset management  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 6
