Given the competing demands for the use of public space and their impact on livability and accessibility, the City of Amsterdam, like large metropolitan areas all over the world, is urgently seeking new mobility solutions. The goal is to shift people out of cars towards public transport, walking and cycling to keep cities livable and citizens healthy and mobile.

Recent developments in ICT, the increasing availability of real-time traffic data, and the full-scale adoption of smartphones are creating new opportunities for seamless multi-modal Urban Mobility services for citizens: connecting shared mobility, public transportation, ‘autonomous’ cars, and bikes. In Amsterdam, the increased availability of mobility data about people exploring the city by walking or cycling offers better insights for (re-)designing public space, making better use of existing infrastructure for better flows of people.

New EU program Urban Mobility

Smart Urban Mobility

The municipality of Amsterdam and AMS Institute are part of the winning consortium Mobilus (Mobility for Liveable Urban Spaces) that will be developing a European innovation program on the topic of urban mobility.

Project

Roboat

Smart Urban Mobility

Amsterdam gets world’s first fleet of autonomous boats.

Project

Noord/Zuidlijn

Smart Urban Mobility

The Noord Zuid metro line as a large infrastructure project has the potential to add value to the city and change the way it works. What is its impact on accessibility, development in the area, economy and public space for the city and urban area?

AMS Institute works on the theme of Smart Urban Mobility and aims to find solutions on the following topics:

  • MaaS and public transport: User-driven Mobility as a Service concepts and innovative public transport solutions to make going from A to B as seamless as possible.
  • Active Modes: Bike and pedestrian flows and prototypes crowd monitoring tools to create safe and pleasurable experiences for both visitors and citizens
  • Autonomy: Driverless vehicles, both on the street and in the water and their impact on urban design to create a better quality of life.
  • Mobility hubs: Points in the urban and mobility network that combine various activities to realize more efficient movement of people and goods in an attractive and accessible urban environment.
  • Data: New ways of collecting and fusing data from various sources with different scales, times and granularity to find new patterns, connection and proof for mobility solutions.

The Spatial & Transport Impacts of Automated Driving

Smart Urban Mobility

Options for transportation in Amsterdam are rapidly changing. The sharing economy is booming, public transport solutions are upgraded and expanded as with the Noord Zuidlijn and even traditional biking is innovated with electricity powered solutions.

Project

ALLEGRO

Smart Urban Mobility

Understanding the behavior of pedestrians and cyclists is a major challenge in traffic and transportation theory. Over 5 years, the ALLEGRO project investigates different behavioral levels, including walking, cycling, travel, scheduling and learning.
