Exploring the Future Opportunities in Urban Mobility:
Highlights from Urban Mobility Days 2023 in Sevilla
The Urban Mobility Days 2023 event has recently come to an end, leaving behind a trail of exciting ideas and opportunities in the realm of urban transportation. At the heart of our exhibition presence was the presentation of our GoGreen initiative, an initiative that promises to reshape how we think about mobility in cities. In this article, we'll take a closer look at some of the highlights of the event.
VR demos and networking
One of the standout features at the event was the showcasing of over 70 VR-demos, addressing the different pain points of day-to-day traffic. This immersive experience takes attendees on a journey through SWARCO’s Meta City, presenting innovative solutions and transportation systems which can significantly facilitate the attainability of their climate goals. Public authorities, universities, young professionals, and representatives from numerous ministries and cities (from Madeira, Lisbon, Sevilla, over Amsterdam, Ricany to Gdynia and Cyprus) were captivated by the existing potential to tackle climate challenges.
Understanding is the key to common success!
Sustainability and the quest for achieving climate neutrality are at the forefront of today's urban mobility challenges, and understanding these is only possible by entering into dialogue. The event provided the perfect opportunity to gain insights and perspectives by listening attentively, and as numerous as the cities visiting the exhibition were, so are the number of different challenges they have to deal with. Nevertheless there were a lot of similarities, especially when it comes to identifying the most common ones.
If we can take the collaboration of politics, industry and public authorities to the next level, the awareness about the potential of Intelligent Transportation Systems will grow and we will push the boundaries of innovation in the quest for a more sustainable and efficient mobility landscape.
