Urban Mobility and Transportation
“Transportation” is the integration of physical and organizational elements with the aim of producing displacement opportunities and demand. Demand is driven by social and economic activities in a target area. Infrastructures, services, control settings, pricing, vehicles, and performances – taken together – make up transportation systems engineering.
“Urban mobility” is divided into collective, individual, and freight transportation. While people’s movements are the outcome of individual decisions, freight movements depend on both the cargo owners and transportation service providers.
“Sustainable mobility” is the ability to meet the needs to move freely, access, communicate, trade, and establish relationships without sacrificing present and future human and ecological values. The traditional definition of mobility has been enriched within the framework of sustainability (declined into economy, society, and environment). When technology is added to this framework, the...
