City Of The Future: Technology & Mobility

A report conducted by the National League of Cities dives into the topic of mobility and technology. Together, mobility and technology are a key consideration for cities as they plan for the future of their communities. The National League of Cities’ (NLC) City of the Future initiative explores existing trends and predicts future developments so that cities can anticipate changes in the urban landscape and prepare accordingly.

Three Revolutions in Urban Transportation

A report published by the Sustainable Transportation Energy Pathways (STEPS) program of the UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies and the Institute for Transportation Development Policy (ITDP) concluded that the world is on the cusp of three revolutions in transportation: vehicle electrification, automation, and widespread shared mobility (sharing of vehicle trips). The report determined that shared mobility is the third and vital piece that could move global transportation into a future that not only saves energy and emissions but also decongests highways, frees up parking lots for other urban uses, cuts transportation costs, and improves walkability and livability.

Adopting and Adapting: States and Automated Vehicle Policy

A report published by the Eno Center for Transportation discusses a very relevant issue faced by smart mobility initatives- to allow technology to reach its full potential, governments at all levels need to adapt, especially on the state level. This paper provides guidance on how states should prepare for an automated future by adapting their approach to motor vehicle regulations, infrastructure investment, and research. Receive a copy in your inbox by emailing gabbie.dixon@iqpc.com

A Public Policy Roadmap for 2017: Intelligent & Transformative Transportation

A public policy roadmap published by ITS America emphazises the current issue of revitalizing our infrastructure and modernizing our outmoded transportation system. Broadly, they seek to improve the safety and efficiency of our transportation networks and our nation’s economy, standard of living, and health and security. Transportation connects communities and is the lifeblood of commerce. It widens job opportunities and is essential to addressing equity, poverty, unemployment, and access to education and health care. Last year alone, 35,092 people died on our roads—the highest fatality rate since the 1960s. Receive a copy in your inbox by emailing gabbie.dixon@iqpc.com

An Integrated Perspective on the Future of Mobility

A report published by McKinsey & Company and Bloomberg tackles the question, "What, then, will be the future of urban mobility?" An Integrated Perspective on the Future of Mobility explores a variety of angles- the social, economic, and technological trends- that will work together to disrupt mobility.To download the full PDF report from the McKinsey website, click the link below.

Shared Mobility Principles For Livable Cities

The pace of technology-driven innovation from the private sector in shared transportation services, vehicles, and networks is rapid, accelerating, and filled with opportunity. The impending advent of self-driving vehicles (or autonomous vehicles) will have a profound impact on livelihoods, land use (including road space, parking facilities, sprawled development), and congestion. Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities prepared ten foundational principles for executing developments in technology, operational systems, ownership and service business models. Execution of these principles will require the efforts of all stakeholders, with a special role for proactive and outcome-oriented governments to provide locally appropriate legislation using all the tools over which they have jurisdiction.

Smart Mobility in the News

Even Smart Cities Have a Big Transportation Gap, Study Shows

An informative article written by Jason Shueh and published by StateScoop goes in depth on the economic forces that have created a death of intercity travel options,even in leading smart cities like Columbus, Ohio. Receive a copy in your inbox by emailing gabbie.dixon@iqpc.com

Small City Gone Smart: Redesigning Traffic Lights in the GIS Capital

An article written by Kjeld Lindsted for StateScoop gives a perspective smaller cities like Redlands and how they often struggle to compete on technology initiatives when stacked against the likes of Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, New York or Detroit. In small cities, leaders are closer to the staff. This provides an opportunity to build momentum behind a smart city initiative. They see their small size as a big advantage and they want to leverage it for all it’s worth. Redlands doesn’t have a large budget, but their ability to drive innovation is a direct result of how they support their staff. Receive a copy in your inbox by emailing gabbie.dixon@iqpc.com

Pushing for Open Data That Makes a Difference, Sunlight Foundation Publishes Tactical Guide

 An article written by Colin Wood for StateScoop discusses how the government has increasingly taken in recent years to publishing its public data, but often without a clearly defined strategy. To change that, the Sunlight Foundation published a four-step guide Tuesday to help data professionals maximize the "social impact" and efficacy of those efforts. Receive a copy in your inbox by emailing gabbie.dixon@iqpc.com

The Postal Service is Working Toward Autonomous Mail Delivery

An article by Tajha Chappellet-Lanier for Fedscoop, summarizes the U.S. Postal Service report detailing interest in possibly implementing self-driving vehicles. The paper, released in early October, looks at how autonomous trucks, cars and vans could be used within USPS as such vehicles become widely available. The the agency’s inspector general envisions five core ways in which self-driving vehicles could help with mail delivery. In one scenario, an autonomous postal truck would drive the route itself, leaving the postal worker on hand free to sort mail or carry out other administrative tasks. The Postal Service is actually already working toward this vision — the agency has partnered with the University of Michigan to build a prototype it hopes to pilot on 10 rural routes in 2019. Receive a copy in your inbox by emailing gabbie.dixon@iqpc.com

GM to Test Fleet of Self-Driving Cars in New York

An article written by the Wall Street Journal reports that General Motors Co. plans to become the first company to test self-driving cars in New York City, a move aimed at asserting leadership in the race to develop autonomous cars and a potentially important step toward commercializing the technology.

5G Opens Up New Potential For Processing Big Data

It’s not just the increasing use of smart devices driving the development of the next generation of wireless technology; 5G is also needed to support a wide range of Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Amongst these are services and applications that will support connected vehicles. Industry interest in V2V (vehicle to vehicle) and V2I (vehicle to infrastructure) connectivity is largely being driven by the key role it will play in enabling driverless vehicles. This increased connectivity will see the amount of data being created and subsequently sent to the cloud increasing exponentially as new devices, including cars, find innovative ways to leverage the IoT.

Testing Connected Autonomous Cars’ Communication Skills

With China recently having made “intelligent connected cars” a key direction of its 2025 roadmap to manufacturing upgrades the project is vital to the Chinese Auto Industry. And this project called “a nice city” is set to take off in Jiading District, home to nearly 70 percent of the city’s car manufacturers, and 80 percent of all automotive research and development. Receive a copy in your inbox by emailing gabbie.dixon@iqpc.com

Smart Cities Bill Would Provide $220 Million Annually

An interesting article written by Kate Roddy and published by StateScoop discusses the potential for a smart cities bill. Federal legislation introduced a proposal for an increase in funding for local governments on the path to becoming smart cities. The Smart Cities and Communities Act of 2017, written by Senator Maria Cantwell, Congresswoman Suzan DelBene, and Congressman Ben Ray Luján — would set aside $220 million per year to replace outdated infrastructure with smart technologies like connected roadway infrastructure, environmental sensors and data analytics. Receive a copy in your inbox by emailing gabbie.dixon@iqpc.com
