Abstract

Urban Mobility systems play an increasingly important role in the way people move around their communities and how communities develop. Despite the significant benefits to using public transportation, many potential riders are reluctant to utilize public transportation. In this current situation, cities and communities are increasing efforts to provide multiple solutions for urban mobility and to promote it among their users. Although such an approach provides valuable alternatives to the citizenry, it also multiplies the information flow that users and service-providers must gather. Riders and commuters are, then, often confused or intimidated by the complexity and unpredictable nature of transit systems. In this paper, we present the results of the group discussions held in Trento at the IEEE-SC Workshop on December 2014 focusing on the topic of Smart Mobility. During this workshop, we analyzed in detail the current situation of Trento as a Smart City and the general requirements for transforming a good mobility plan into a smart mobility action. Our group contributions converged into five main priorities: 1) developing citizens’ awareness regarding the adoption of alternative services; 2) engaging citizens themselves as an important and valuable source of input; 3) enhancing Localized Based Systems (LBS); 4) the creation of an open platform, with an advanced Dashboard, through which citizenry, administration, and businesses can easily develop civic apps and services by means of intelligent and aggregated information, even in real time; 5) last, but not least, increasing the communication network by leveraging the development of cooperative systems.
