Traffic and demand management refers to measures such as parking management, reallocating urban space in favour of sustainable modes of transport (including shared space), access controls, road pricing, and traffic signal control strategies.
When a cruise ship docks at a port city, thousands of passengers and crew members disembark to tour the local area. In terms of mobility planning, the number of visitors may be minimal in comparison to the number of residents, but the concentration of visitors in such a short space of time and space is often a challenge.
The recorded webinar below (in Italian) will show you what the Italian cities of LOCATIONS (Trieste, Ravenna e Livorno) are planning in order to manage this issue properly.
A recent study by the health institute BCNecologia, based in Barcelona, suggests that there are potentially significant benefits to be delivered from Barcelona’s ambitious plans for applying the superblock model. The model effectively takes urban space away from the car and gives it to people, enabling an increase in walking and also providing more space to socialise. The superblocks also have better cycling and public transport links, to replace car journeys.
This case study, produced by the Engineering Faculty, Mechatronical Department at Debrecen University shows the results of the KnK Venturi Traffic Optimisation Machine Learning (ML) System on a given traffic problem. The solution provided by machine learning demonstrates the problem-solving capabilities of new technologies.
The City Transport & Traffic Innovation (CiTTi) Exhibition will gather industry experts together, to explore how innovations in traffic and transport will help the movement of people and goods through an urban environment safely and efficiently.
Visitor passes are free and will give attendees full access to all the solutions on offer, including live demonstrations of cutting-edge technologies, informative conference streams and the chance to learn from experts behind the latest traffic and transport innovations.
The schools in the UK city of Coventry have a problem in common with many other schools Europe-wide: unsafe roads around schools resulting from high levels of traffic, the largest part of which caused by parents dropping off their children directly at the school gate right before classes start.
