Smart Mobility

This area encompasses the lines of research and technological innovation that contribute to the sustainable economic development of cities and a high quality of life of their citizens, with a sensible management of natural resources, by means of participative management.

The current abilities of inLab FIB in this area can be classified as follows:

Energy-efficiency simulation applied to buildings (EeB), allows to optimise the construction stage of a building by selecting the most suitable structural elements and materials, in order to reduce the environmental impact and the economic costs.

We have our own simulation tool in the cloud (NECADA) that is currently being used in innovation and technology transfer projects with construction and environmental management companies and research institutes. It has awoken the interest of other big companies of the construction sector.

Smart Mobility. This expertise is supported by the transport and ICT researchers, of international reference in the use of information technology to improve transport’s efficiency and sustainability, active management and information of cities’ traffic, and citizens’ mobility.

  • New generation forecasting models for high quality traffic and travel information, short-term real-time predictions.
  • Traffic data analysis: data filtering, completion and fusion, big data, interoperability, floating passenger data.
  • New mobility concepts: ridesharing, demand-responsive transportation modes, connected cars.
  • Multimodal journey planners, dynamic vehicle routing for fleets.
  • Macro, meso and micro traffic simulation.

The most recent technology transfer activity has been focused on different projects, collaborating with SEAT and Volkswagen Research to validate, via simulation, new urban mobility concepts. These projects belong to the initiative CarNET, drove by the Càtedra SEAT of the UPC.

Transport energy efficiency simulation allows to calculate current energy consumption and experiment with different scenarios.

Architecture Overview

In the current world we have smart objects providing data (such as parking detectors telling which parking spots are currently available), and smart-objects/applications willing to find this data (such as an intelligent car or mobile applications looking for available parking).
