Project details

Start date: 09/2008
End date: 08/2011

Description: CityNetMobil focus is on automated transport systems and its approach, is to organise dissemination actions to raise the awareness around these systems. Awareness to increase acceptance, by politicians, local mobility planners and general public, of automated transport systems as a more inclusive urban transport solution, providing better access to all, environmentally friendly, capable of reducing urban transport share of energy consumption and CO2 emission, and safer than conventional transport modes.

Seventh in a stream of projects, CityNetMobil, will diffuse the results obtained by all its predecessors, coordinate the activities of a group of cities interested in these kind of systems and willing to host events to make people acquainted with such technology, and network toward other cities to introduce automated transport systems to them. The latest of the six predecessor projects, CityMobil, had first the idea of creating a reference group of cities with the aim of receiving suggestions on mobility problems which could be addressed with advanced transport systems. Such reference group however proved to be more than just a prompter of mobility problems; soon cities asked for some kind of action by the project side to promote advanced transport systems there.

CityNetMobil will start from such reference group, re-invite the member cities and any other who would join, to a selection process and then organise events in five selected cities. CityNetMobil will prepare common dissemination material to inform and invite people to the events and to greet people there (e.g. audiovisual material, posters and gadgets). Each CityNetMobil event will feature the installation of a small showcase of moving automated vehicles, a conference and an exhibition with audiovisuals and poster display. To maximise the visibility of the events the possibility of concomitance with other scientific or cultural events will be sought.
