How can policymakers utilise the potential of smart mobility to tackle challenges in urban mobility? This new e-course provides new tools by giving an integral overview of the impacts automated driving, mobility-as-a-service, as well as financial incentives to influence travel behaviour. The e-course synthesises and integrates the results of the VerduS SURF projects STAD, SCRIPTS en U-SMILE, in which T&P participated. 

Smart mobility (DTV17)

Smart mobility could make policy objectives be achieved faster and more efficiently. In order to assess these promises and to exploit the potential it is necessary to equip professionals involved in policy making and delivery with a solid set of knowledge and methods. This e-course is designed for this purpose. It collects, sumarizes and presents the key findings from Dutch VerDuS research projects that are relevant for policy makers.

This e-course was developed as part of the VerDuS programme Smart Urban Regions of the Future with project number 438.19.162 which is (co)financed by the Dutch Research Council. It has been established by DTV Consultants and Goudappel Coffeng and lead by TU Delft. Contributions were made by the following projects from the VerDuS program: Spatial and Transport impacts of Automated Driving (STAD), Urban Smart Measures and Incentives for quality of Life Enhancement (U-SMILE) and Smart Cities Responsive Intelligent Public Transport Systems (SCRIPTS).

The e-course can be followed any place any time. The platform remembers your progress and allows you to easily navigate through the content. In any order you like.

The e-course was developed as part of a SURF Pop Up project funded by NWO and lead by Bart van Arem, partnering with Nick Juffermans from Goudappel, Lobke Zandstra from the Metropolitan Region Rotterdam The Hague and Teije Goris of DTV Consultants. Simeon Calvert led the effort to develop course material on behalf of the STAD project. The e-course is freely available after registration.

An additional report (in Dutch) is available that synthesises the findings of the three SURF projects at
