Once upon a time in the future....

----when autonomous cars are the only driving vehicles (hopefully not too many) traffic will be much safer than today.

But what about the next decade when ordinary cars, automated cars and self-driving cars are mixed? In my newest post, you will find an answer to this question.

Sign up for the Amsterdam Mobility Challenge!

The Metropolitan Region Amsterdam (MRA) expects to grow by two million people and more than 200,000 houses in the next 30 years. Because of this; a complex mobility challenge arises that has to answer to the following questions:

• How can we keep the traffic flowing in a way that allows people to get where they need to be?
• How can we make sure goods will be delivered to people and companies?
• How can we approach this challenge knowing that we are moving towards an emission-free world?
• How can we maintain investment levels in infrastructure at an acceptable and affordable level?

We’re challenging teams to develop solutions that focus on:
• Optimization: improve driver, vehicle and fleet efficiency
• Public transport & shared mobility: introduce new methods of transportation and multimodality that are more accessible and flexible for everyone
• Interactive systems with existing infrastructure

Solutions should contribute to Amsterdam’s 2025 zero emission target and should work for and benefit the whole ecosystem of the government, transportation and logistics companies, retailers, insurers, the automotive industry and tech/digital companies. In addition, a major focus should be to provide citizens with new modes of transportation that are faster, cheaper, cleaner, safer and more efficient.

First prize for the winning solution:
€4.000 + travel for two people per winning team to attend the Garage Opening Festival in Amsterdam, April 11, 2019, where they will pitch their idea to top CEOs from each industry.
Second price: €2.000
Third price: €1.000

Sign up before the 15th of February!

FABULOS (Future Automated Bus Urban Level Operation System) is a European research and development project to establish and deliver a systemic proof-of-concept for automated last mile public transport as part of the existing transport system of urban areas, based on the use of self-driving minibuses. The FABULOS project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and runs from 1 January 2018 until 31 December 2020. The FABULOS project has partners in Estonia, Finland, Greece, the Netherlands, Norway and Portugal. The six procuring partners use Pre-Commercial Procurement as a tool to co-create an innovative solution together with multiple companies. Contracts have been signed in December 2018 with 5 consortia. The first Phase (feasibility study) starts in January 2019. Actual piloting of fleets of robot buses takes place in all 6 partner cities from Spring 2002 onwards.
Most recent press release: https://fabulos.eu/five-consortia-awarded-contracts-in-fabulos-pre-commercial-procurement/

The FABULOS consortium has finalised the evaluation of the tenders in December 2018 and has awarded five consortia with contracts. The aim of these contracts is to facilitate procurement of R&D work to develop systems capable of operating fleets of automated minibuses. As a first step towards this goal, each consortium will conduct a feasibility study of proposed solutions and technologies.

After the closing of the FABULOS request for tenders on 31 October 2018, the tenders were assessed by the Technical Evaluation Committee. In addition to commercial feasibility and project management, nine functional criteria and three non-functional criteria were used. The functional criteria range from fleet management and remote operation and all the way to requirements for vehicle capabilities in mixed traffic. Societal and legal aspects form elements of the non-functional criteria. The fleet is expected to drive in mixed traffic, at urban speeds, in nearly in all weather conditions and without a conductor on board.

“We were positively surprised by the high quality of tenders received and were pleased to discover so many exceptional solutions to the FABULOS challenge. It will be very exciting to see these proposed solutions become a reality by the end of 2020,” summarises Technical Chair of the Evaluation Committee Oscar Nissin, from Metropolia University of Applied Sciences.

Five European consortia have succeeded in the first stage of the competition. In total, 16 companies from six European countries formed consortia as follows:

  • The FVF Consortium consisting of three Finnish partners: Fortum Power and Heat Oy, Fleetonomy.ai Oy and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.
  • The Kompai-Actia Consortium consisting of two French companies: Kompaï Robotics and Actia Automobile.
  • The Mobile Civitatem Consortium consisting of four partners from Estonia: Modern Mobility Oü, Tallinn University of Technology, Silberauto Eesti AS and Ecofleet Eesti Oü. The fifth member of the consortium is the Danish company Autonomous Mobility A/S.
  • The Saga Consortium consisting of four Norwegian partners: Halogen AS, Forus PRT AS, Spare Labs Inc. and Ramboll Management Consulting AS.
  • The Sensible 4 – Shotl Consortium consisting of two partners: Sensible 4 from Finland and Shotl from Spain.

The total FABULOS procurement budget is around 5,500,000 euros (incl. VAT). The maximum budget for individual suppliers involved in all three phases is over 1,000,000 euros (incl. VAT).

Smart Mobility in de MRA: gewoon doen!

Featured image

Met smart mobility oplossingen maken we mobiliteit binnen de Metropoolregio Amsterdam slimmer, duurzaam en toekomstbestendig. Maar hoe ziet de regio er over twintig of dertig jaar uit? Tijdens de tweejaarlijkse kennisbijeenkomst Smart Mobility in de MRA op 1 november jl. kwamen alle betrokken partners en marktpartijen bij elkaar voor de laatste update over lopende projecten.

Innovatieve last mile
Op station Zaandam stonden elektrische steps en scooters, deelauto’s en deelfietsen opgesteld. Deelnemers van het congres konden deze unieke services gebruiken voor de last mile van station naar evenementenlocatie Taets. Dé ideale manier om kennis te maken met elektrische steps van Enino, groene scooters van Felyx, deelauto’s van Stap Inn, innovatief OV van Via Van en deelfietsen van FlickBike. Na een woord van wethouder Gerard Slegers werd tijdens de opening van het congres de diensten van FlickBike ook in de gemeente Zaanstad gelanceerd.

Naast kennisdelen en ontmoeten stond ook de Smart Mobility projectenkaart centraal met daarop alle lopende projecten in de MRA. Dit is de eerste keer dat er een overall overzicht gepresenteerd is met daarop alle actuele projecten. Het overzicht is tijdens de dag verder aangevuld met projecten die er nog niet op stonden. Het resultaat zie je hier. Wil je op de hoogte blijven van het projectenoverzicht? Stuur dan een mail naar smartmobility[@]vervoerregio.nl.

Kennis delen in workshops
De kennisbijeenkomst stond deze keer in het teken van de toekomstbestendigheid rondom smart mobility. Na twee inspirerende, soms uitdagende key-notes van trendwatcher Richard van Hooijdonk en directeur Thijs Emondts van Uber werd er binnen verschillende workshops en speeddates gesproken over projecten en initiatieven in de regio. Zo namen Derk Wantia (MOJO Concerts) en Arwind Gajadien (LiveCrowd) de aanwezigen mee in de afwegingen voor een soepel verkeer rondom festivals en zocht Bart van Arem (TU Delft) naar input voor een wetenschappelijk vervolgonderzoek naar zelfrijdend vervoer in de MRA.

Speeddaten: alles wat je weten wilde over...
Uniek aan het evenement was de mogelijkheid om te speeddaten. Onder het motto ‘alles wat je altijd wilde weten over…’ konden deelnemers in korte tijd alles te weten komen over onder andere Talking Traffic of de slimme energieopslag in de Johan Cruijff ArenA. Een laagdrempelige manier om te discussieren, netwerken en geinspireerd de deur uit te lopen.

Automation Preparing To Serve Until The Last Mile

Automation, robots, and artificial intelligence – there is an increasing buzz around the deployment of these marvellous inventions when we have already started envisioning a future that will witness a new dawn of human-machine relationship.

On one side where people predict robots will conquer human jobs, on the greener side some anticipate the rise of high-skilled jobs for people. As a matter of fact, both the predictions seem to be coming true. Although robots are taking over the traditional human jobs, they are providing more advanced jobs for humans – securing safer jobs for us over a lifetime.

The initiatives discussed further are a concrete evidence to the interestingly contradictory anticipations. Different smart cities around the world are collaborating with the automation industry to launch autonomous vehicles for various purposes. They are paving the way to a more efficient, secure and convenient urban landscape.

The choice between heaven and hell

Autonomous cars can change our cities into lovable places or into the worst gridlock ever. Urban policy will make the difference. In my newest blogpost I propose guidelines to align mobility with policy focused on on liveability and sustainability.

We Americans are doomed by our car-based infrastructure.

So now, as indicated by the massive commitments among automakers into AEVs, we will see the death of the personal car. Since we ignored efficient mass transport like a convenient railway system, and embraced sprawl to accommodate our beloved stinkpots, if we live between cities we may have no affordable ways to access them conveniently.

There are mass-transit urban systems which require a car (and parking) to access their sometimes isolated pickup points, and if you're more than 10 miles out, even that may not be plausible. From 100 miles away only a snail-paced, antiquated bus system may be available and ride-hailing service gets too expensive to be palatable.

As enlightened Amsterdamers, we need your advice in facing the future. It's too late to build a Euro-style rail system. In the long term, if we go without cars how can we move between cities and then have personal mobility inside them? Would be interesting to see how you are addressing that problem, assuming it even exists for you.

Air-taxis like Lilium.com? What about urban mobility? Car-sharing like Mavendrive.com? Scootriders in towns are fast but require serious skill.

We may have a different problem, but if you're interested would enjoy your thoughts.
