Modern urban mobility enables cities to provide safer and more efficient transportation methods for the inhabitants. With micro-mobility vehicles, people can access their last-mile destination, not only the bigger transportation hubs.
Transportation solutions have to be affordable but also convenient and environmentally friendly. Modern mobility offers solutions to all of the above. Additionally, the data gained from the mobility networks provide further support in research and development, planning a safer and more efficient infrastructure:
Safety on the roads
By learning from the data, authorities can plan the traffic better; reduce the number of traffic jams, road accidents, and unforeseen ad hoc events. By being able to analyze the road networks, the transportation management companies and the police can work together and arrange alternative routes and offer fast corrective actions when needed.
Understanding complex mobility networks
By benefiting from big data, complex situations can be understood better and handled in real-time. Smart data enables structures that help to manage, understand and regulate local and national mobility better, such as catering to road and vehicle capacity, rush hour management, traffic accidents, and roadblocks.
Data analysis provides substantial support in the planning of new mobility services. By introducing an appropriate regulatory framework, the growing number of various transportation solution brands can work together, and authorities can regulate the quality and the number of competing brands on the market.
Fleet operators can understand the current conditions and adjust their business model the best way to support the whole network, the travelers on the road, and the viability of their business. They can evaluate the demand versus vehicles on the road, changes in the traffic flow, weather conditions, unforeseen events, synchronization of traffic lights, lane closures, road constructions, etc. and find the most convenient and economical solutions.
Big data combined with long-term planning helps to improve the environment where transportation networks can be effectively built and managed.
