Ladies and Gentlemen, Today we are talking about Smart Mobility. I believe that Smart Mobility – or ITS, Intelligent Transport Systems will play an increasingly important role both in the EU and China in offering the transport services and addressing the inherent socio-economic challenges. In Europe, this is because we cannot build any more roads, altough we have more cars and more congestion, and we need to use the existing network more efficiently. In China I think that even when you invest to new transport infrastructure in a massive scale, you also need Smart Mobility as the deman is and the problems of congestion, energy use, safety and pollution grow even faster. Here you can see some of the Smarr Mobility services which already are deployed in Europe: Next, I will say a few more words of a few of them.
Europe 2014-2020: transport intelligents
Europe’s Transport Challenges The White Paper 2011Roadmap to a Single European Transport AreaTowards a competitive and resource efficient transport system• To meet the challenges, transport has to: • Use less energy • Use cleaner energy • Exploit efficiently a multimodal, integrated and ‘intelligent’ network• Curbing mobility is not an option• By 2050 reduce emissions by 60%, and 20% by 2020 (2008 level)• By 2050 move close to zero fatalities in road transport, halving road casualties by 2020
