We are exploring the intersection of the latest innovations with future mobility needs. Our research questions pivot around four main areas of interest:

 

Urban Mobility Metrics

How to read the complexity of our cities and make informed decisions? The availability of real-time mobility data is changing the way we can approach city design and operations. Our goal is to define a robust methodology capable of investigating an endless variety of contexts, identifying the most relevant mobility patterns and metrics that are yet to be revealed.

Livable Streets

How to design or retrofit our streets in order to become centers of social life? We are increasingly aware of the crucial role played by our streets, sidewalks, parks and squares: this capillary infrastructure can fight climate change, soften the impact of pandemics, curb inequalities and connect a rich diversity of people. We are extensively studying best practices and seeing how these can be improved. See more on this topic →

 

Innovative Technologies

How to make best use of emerging technologies and drive positive changes? Automation, electrification, ride-sharing and other innovations are changing the way we think about urban mobility, showing both great risks and even greater opportunities. We are exploring a range of scenarios in different contexts to help identify what policies or strategies can be beneficial both in the short and long terms. See more on this topic →

 

Transport Infrastructure

How to design infrastructures today that can accommodate future needs? The impact of mobility technologies on modes of transport has had the greatest impact on the shape of our cities over history. We are investigating how to design resilient infrastructure that, while responding to current needs, can accommodate future growth through seamless small improvements and radical transformations alike. See more on this topic →
