This Output Paper presents the highlights of the Groupe Renault-hosted FISITA Member Forum on smart cities and smart mobility.
Defining a smart city requires consideration of different concepts for the city, including space, city planning, and the needs and expectations of its citizens.
Smart mobility generally involves the use of technology to enable transport that is faster, cleaner, and more efficient than existing solutions, sometimes using new and shared micromobility offerings such as electric scooters and bicycles, with app-based payment.
At the heart of both smart concepts lies a combination of factors which, if carefully coordinated, will increase energy efficiency, minimise consumption, waste and overall cost, reduce congestion and travel time, cut emissions and pollution, and benefit commercial stakeholders and the wider community.
