Belgium has ground to a halt. Congestion records are shattered year after year. Not only is this a nuisance, it also has a disastrous impact on our economy and health. But if we act today then we can turn the tide. Even faster than you might think.

In the whitepaper 'Smart mobility: Multimodal and connected mobility solutions for the cities of today and tomorrow', the experts of Agoria's smart cities work group 'Smart mobility' share their global vision on mobility, in particular passenger transport. 

In this whitepaper, you will read why smart mobility requires an overall long-term vision, as well as a coherent, coordinated policy at every level of government and continuous investments. Cities and municipalities, regions and other competent authorities must all work together 

"Smart infrastructure, autonomous vehicles, mobility hubs... it isn't untilall pieces of the puzzle fit togetherthat the impact of smart mobility willbecome obvious: improved traffic flow, lower environmental impact,fewer accidents and a higher degree of travel comfort."

If they are willing to do so, there are many technological (and other) solutions available to tackle the challenges of mobility. Our smart mobility experts indicate the options available with today's technology (2018) and discuss how they think mobility will evolve in the mid (by 2030)and long term (by 2040). Smart infrastructure, the role of data, digitisation and artificial intelligence, connected and autonomous vehicles, the sharing economy, mobility hubs, mobility-as-a-service models,... it all comes up for discussion. 

The whitepaper ends with a series of recommendations to get local governments and authorities started right away. In short, compulsory reading for anyone who wants to develop a sustainable mobility policy or at least wants to be involved in the social debate on this subject with the right knowledge.
