Lidia Montero, head of Smart Mobility at the inLab FIB, will explain the benefits of creating "Digital Twins for mobility strategies" at the Door-to-door mobility conference, which explores the keys to the sustainable mobility of the future. The congress will be held on May 31 at the Casa Seat, we encourage you to attend, admission is free and you only need to register here.
Initiatives to define future mobility arouse great interest from both citizens and companies and regulatory administrations. New technological trends allow an infinite range of possibilities to optimize and integrate journeys and, therefore, improve the quality of life of citizens. As cited in the EC ERRAC 2030 document: Climate change, increased traffic demand, congestion, security and sustainable energy supply are some of the main issues facing the European Union and the rest of the world . At the same time, good accessibility is necessary for a society to function and to guarantee economic development, job creation and new mobility paradigms that allow them to develop door-to-door sustainable mobility models that provide punctual, reliable, safe, protected and profitable as a service to citizens and businesses.
In this conference we will present different technologies developed at the UPC that are being applied in real environments to solve mobility challenges, where the variables related to the optimization and management of the electrical load, the use of data to plan mobility, the new services of mobility where the user is at the center, social equality, the digital divide, "seamless mobility", and even the covid-19 pandemic and changes in the behavior of the population to move, acquire a new weight. We will also discuss how public-private collaboration must be able to coordinate global mobility solutions that allow optimization of transport and generate business opportunities for companies.
UPC and IN-MOVE, by RAILGRUP collaborate in the organization of this conference.
