De Mobiliteit Show: Op weg naar een duurzaam decennium

Featured image

Worden de jaren 2020 het decennium van duurzame mobiliteit? Is de sector in 2029 eindelijk duurzaam? Halen wij de doelen van het klimaatakkoord en wat is de impact op de bereikbaarheid van de stad? Met de verlaging van de maximumsnelheid overdag naar 100 km/u, de agenda Amsterdam autoluw, de elektrificatie van het OV en de 10 seconden dienstregeling lijkt de toon gezet. Maar wat valt verder te verwachten? Dit alles in de nieuwste editie van de Mobiliteit Show; een wervelende talkshow voor alle liefhebbers van fietsen, auto's, treinen en logistiek.

Autonoom vervoer

Featured image

Hoewel autonoom vervoer steeds dichterbij komt, rijden er nog geen zelfrijdende auto’s door onze straten. Hoe kan dat? Sprekers belichten de uitdagingen in het realiseren van autonoom vervoer vanuit verschillende invalshoeken.

Terwijl meerdere grote bedrijven er al geruime tijd op volle kracht aan werken, bijten ingenieurs, juristen, verkeerskundigen en ethici hun tanden erop stuk, en bereiden overheden en verzekeringsmaatschappijen zich voor op deze nieuwe technologie van autonoom vervoer. Blijkbaar is het zowel technologisch als maatschappelijk een flinke uitdaging om autonoom vervoer te realiseren.

Met onder meer:
Peter-Paul Verbeek, hoogleraar Filosofie van mens en techniek, Universiteit Twente

Jorrit Kuipers, ingenieur, RobotTUNER, CTO

Henk Nijmeijer, hoogleraar Mechanical Engineering, Dynamics and Control, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven

Public opening of the Amsterdam Drone Week 2019

Featured image

The European Union wants to be at the forefront of exploring the use of urban airspace. This would drastically change the way we experience our cities. What would this mean for Amsterdam or other European capitals? Are we finally getting the flying car? What is the impact on the livability and the sustainability of our cities? Together with experts from the industry, science, government and the public, we will explore this - not so distant - future.

The future is now. How to build urban aviation? What practical applications of drones are useable now? Nick Cornelissen, a robotica specialist at Waternet, will talk about the use of drones in watermanagement. And Jeroen van den Tweel, a security manager at ProRail, will talk about the use of drones in rail maintenance.

To enable safe, secure and regular drone services in our cities, a new airspace infrastructure is demanded. What are the challenges and possibilities to create a new secure infrastructure for drones in urban areas? How will drones be allowed to move, and how can they be integrated into the social structure? Petra Dalunde, Chief Operating Officer at Kista Science City in Stockholm, will tell us about her research Urban Drone Testbed.

Petra Dalunde, Vassilis Agouridas, AIRBUS and Martijn Lugten, AMS Institute, will discuss the future of urban air mobility.

At the end of the evening I will talk about the perspective of the city of Amsterdam.

Please register, come and join the conversation at Pakhuis de Zwijger on the 3rd of december.

Oproep aan alle mobiliteitsvrouwen!

Diverse perspectieven op mobiliteit zijn hard nodig om samen tot goede toekomstbestendige oplossingen te komen. Vind je ook dat een congres programmering met een all-male line-up wel heel 2018 is? Samen worden we beter zichtbaar en vindbaar. Doe je mee? Er staan al 86 vrouwen te schitteren in onze 'wall of fame' en er zijn 108 vakvruowen onderdeel van onze LinkedIn groep. Meld je aan bij het [W]heels Netwerk!

En de mannen? Wordt ambassadeur, fan, spread the word, volg @wheelsnetwerk op Twitter, activeer je vrouwelijke netwerk en weiger vooral te spreken als er geen diversiteit aan sprekers is.

How Amsterdam is learning from Uber's aggregate data

In July Amsterdam signed a ‘social charter’ with ride-hailing operator Uber, following a series of high-profile accidents involving its drivers in the Dutch capital last winter.

This, and more, was discussed at the City Leadership Forum in Vienna.

Go Abroad Day voor Smart City ondernemers

Featured image

Createness organiseert de Go Abroad Day voor Smart City ondernemers die hun product ook in het buitenland willen vermarkten.

U draait in Nederland een leuke business en zou graag uit willen breiden naar andere landen, maar ja, u spreekt de taal niet en heeft al handen te kort om de Nederlandse markt goed te bedienen. Die stap naar het buitenland trekt u aan. Uw product zou daar een goede kans van slagen hebben. Of u zou graag uitbreiden naar een ander land … maar eerst moet u dit nog even regelen… Herkenbaar?

Bij Createness assisteren we bedrijven bij het écht zetten van internationale stappen. Eigenaar Jochem Karstanje ziet dit spanningsveld bij veel organisaties. ‘Er is veel tijd, geld en energie gestoken in een nieuw product. Alles ligt klaar, het geloof is er en dan er op uit. Het product op de Nederlandse markt lanceren gaat de meesten met veel doorzettingsvermogen nog wel goed af. Totdat je kansen in het buitenland ziet … Een sales medewerker of exportmanager aannemen is te duur. Je budget zit per slot van rekening in de ontwikkeling van het nieuwe product. Dan zelf op en neer naar Gent of Stuttgart .. maar waar moet je dan zijn en hoe zit het met de wet- en regelgeving daar? Heb je daar rekening mee te houden? …. Misschien toch nog even wachten dan… je moet dit eerst uitzoeken en dat kost tijd … ‘At the end zie ik dus veel goede initiatieven stranden en dat is jammer’ aldus Jochem ‘want we hebben zoveel gave producten die zeker hun plek op de internationale markt verdienen’. Daarom organiseert Createness de Go Abroad Day.
De Go Abroad Day is een vernieuwd concept om je bedrijf export klaar te stomen. In het programma op de Go Abroad Day staat actie en interactie centraal. Door een tiental ondernemers / sales- en export managers van bedrijven met elkaar te laten sparren en bij elkaar in de keuken te laten kijken ontstaat er een groot leer- en afkijkeffect.

Kortom een dag vol met inspiratie, u gaat aan het eind van de Go Abroad Day naar huis met complete export actiepuntenlijst en een hoofd vol inspiratie om al uw ideeën echt tot werkelijkheid te laten worden.
Wilt u ook stappen nemen naar het buitenland of met uw organisatie een nieuw land betreden? Er zijn nog een plekken beschikbaar voor 25 oktober en 29 november.

Kosten 499 euro. Exporteer je minder dan 25 % of is je bedrijf jonger dan 3 jaar? Dan is deelname gratis! NVO Nederland sponsort deze dag in zijn geheel!
Wacht niet langer en schrijf je nu in!

Start Smart Mobility Amsterdam 2019 - 2025

An accessible, liveable and less polluted city: this is what we’d like to achieve for residents, visitors and businesses in Amsterdam today and for future generations.
Smarter and cleaner mobility can help us realise these aims. As a city, we want to offer Amsterdammers, commuters and visitors alternatives to the present forms of mobility, providing a door-to-door solution and contributing to our aims. This includes shared electric transport, from cars to bikes, in ‘Neighbourhood eHubs’ (eBuurthubs) established in cooperation with local residents. That way, we can use clean modes of transport and create more space in the city by sharing. We can then use this extra space to improve liveability.

Actions

To achieve the ambitions, we will start working with two program lines:

1. Data and digitization
This program line helps the municipal organization digital tools and skills to ensure sufficient control in the future be able to rely on mobility in the city and around
improve quality in public spaces. We are working towards a mobility center of the
future. For this we will use the take the following steps:
• A shared basis: building a strong one data position
• A level playing field: frameworks
• Learning by doing: from traffic management to mobility management
• Ready for the future: aware of the consequences of digitization of mobility

2. Innovative mobility solutions

In this program we work together on concrete smart and clean alternatives to transport, so that Amsterdammers and visitors to the city are less dependent on their own car. We do this by setting up projects in certain urban areas and for specific target groups. We also focus on smart city logistics and we explore the possibilities of transport by water and air. Special attention is given to vulnerable groups and Amsterdam residents with a small grant. We improve the range of new affordable mobility concepts and increase demand, we grow into smart mobility city number 1 with a better and accessible mobility system for everyone. For this we will include the following in this program:

• Smart organization of mobility in the city: travelers are working on alternatives to possessing cars and initiating behavioral change.
• Smart fitting and efficient deployment of new mobility solutions: creating space for new concepts in the city and scaling up
• Anticipate on technological innovations: insights into new opportunities and collaborations. The report contains an overview of the various projects started in the previous program that are still running and newly started activities.

WEBINAR: Mobility Redefined: Blurred Lines in Public/Private Transportation

Featured image

Mobility on demand (MOD) has created a swing from a reliance upon traditional methods to embracing more scalable multi-modal transport initiatives. This takes us a step closer to achieving fully integrated, sustainable and scalable Mobility as a Service but to do so, public and private companies must work more closely than ever before.

Our exclusive live webinar “Mobility Redefined? Blurred Lines & New Business Models” (Thurs, May 2, 15:00 CET) feat. ViaVan, POLIS, MaaS Global & EMTA will discuss how we integrate mobility platforms with public transit infrastructure to provide on-demand and dynamic transportation solutions.

Key topics include:
• Mobility Redefined? See how municipalities need to innovate to explore new models which cater to evolving demands and lower congestion and emissions.
• Solving Public Transport Pain Points: Understanding how the public sector and transport authorities are creating new regulation for open data sharing
• Powered By Data: Harness the power of data to optimise routes, distribution and feed real time transportation data to commuters for a seamless transport experience
• Create Trusted Public/ Private Partnerships: Discuss how to work in harmony with the cities and enable integration between public transportation and shared mobility services

http://bit.ly/2FR4fJ9

The time of procrastination is over. That’s why we have created IMPACT>MOBILITY. It will unite the urban transportation ecosystem to deliver on-demand low-emission mobility services and create a sustainable business model for its emerging players.
Europe is undergoing a revolution in urban mobility as cities outlaw ICE vehicles to meet ambitious zero emission targets whilst working to meet the evolving needs of the on-demand consumer.
From Mobility as a Service and final mile logistics to public transportation and E-mobility, data will be the critical enabler bringing together fragmented stakeholder groups and ushering in a new era of urban transportation. Data will be the critical enabler bringing together fragmented stakeholder groups and ushering in a new era of urban transportation

5 Reasons to Attend the Only Event Confronting the Business Realities of Mobility as a Service:

Data, Data, Data, Data
You’ve heard it before; “data is the new oil”! However, despite the promise, the true value of mobility and transportation data is still unclear for both public and private stakeholders. What is it worth? Who Will Buy it? What does it cost to analyse and storage? IMPACT>CITIES will evaluate these crucial questions underpinning build the business case for mobility
1. Move beyond the hype to scalability!
Hear case studies and best practices direct from executives at the forefront of building mobility services. Get key insights from real world deployments to see what’s worked and the challenges faced. Don’t make the mistakes others have already made
2. Learn from the whole marketplace – public and private:
New mobility services will only succeed if public and private stakeholders and play to their strengths and collaborate. IMPACT>MOBILITY will bring together the industry front-runners from across cities, public transit agencies, mobility service providers, automakers and tech innovators. Create solutions that solve problems – don’t create new ones!
3. A program focused on core business needs:
You already know the big picture trends. That’s why we’ve focused the agenda around the 4 core pillars of building mobility services; 1. Data Platforms & Business Models 2. Mobility as a Service 3. Investment & Financing Mobility 4. Last Mile & Connected Infrastructure. Get the holistic picture of success!
4. More than a conference – the mobility community coming together:

Webinar on Properties of electric Vehicles - FABULOS Academy webinar #1

Featured image

In 2019, the FABULOS project will organise six webinar sessions on robot bus topics introducing basic concepts, specific terminology and technologies commonly encountered in the field of automated mobility. The primary target groups are cities and other procuring authorities.

A new era of transportation
Increasingly many cities and public transport authorities are confronted with mobility innovations. Autonomous public transport is one of the “hot topics” that will radically change the urban mobility scene within the next decade. Several European cities have already gained experience with automated shuttle buses and many other cities have an interest in doing so. However, automated shuttles are not yet finished products and not ready for cost effective operation. Therefore, pilots in cities are critical to enable the development of the autonomous vehicles and their related systems.

However, employees at municipalities or other procuring entities often do not have in-depth knowledge regarding these novel technologies. Knowing all details is not always necessary, but when taking part in a pilot or procurement for (shared) autonomous mobility, it is essential to be aware of the fundamentals on, for example, sensors, positioning, cyber threats and charging. To bridge the knowledge gap, the FABULOS project launches the FABULOS Academy.

Six webinar topics
The FABULOS Consortium hosts six one-hour webinars in 2019. In case of popular demand on certain topic, a separate in-depth session can be organised. Below are the confirmed webinars (see https://fabulos.eu/fabulos-academy-2019/ for event details and registration form) as well as the foreseen topics:

1. Properties of electric vehicles (14 February 2019)
2. Regulatory aspects of autonomous mobility (16 April 2019)
3. Wireless communication technologies
4. Robot bus localisation (ie. positioning)
5. Sensors of robot buses and sensor fusion
6. Cyber threats and threat mitigation
