ASEAN Australia Smart Cities Webinar Series Part 6: Next Practice Smart Mobility Lab

02 February 2021


For decades, cities around the world have been developed to accommodate automobiles. As cities continue to grow, so have the consequences of a car-centric approach to urban mobility planning. Traffic congestion, parking shortages, road crashes, and air and noise pollution is putting more pressure on cities’ already stressed urban and transportation systems. Solving these challenges requires a holistic and integrated approach to city and transport planning, considering new and sustainable urban mobility approaches.

Many cities have started their transition towards more sustainable and smart mobility options. Smart mobility combines sustainable mobility planning with the latest in mobility technology to create attractive, convenient and efficient urban spaces. But to gain the most benefit from these solutions, complementary technologies need to work together with sound regulatory/policy frameworks, data, and infrastructure to facilitate a cohesive and resilient mobility eco-system.

This webinar explored how cities can plan and design for mobility in the next 50-100 years and navigate through volatile transitions through smart mobility approaches. Speakers shared their experience and expertise on best practices in smart urban mobility planning and digital technologies that are enhancing urban mobility. The session adopted a hybrid presentation + hard talk format, offering participants a chance to join the discussion through audience polls and Q&A.
