UN forecasts show: By 2050, nearly 70 percent of the world's population is expected to live in cities. This makes it crucial for traffic and transportation experts to work on introducing tomorrow's mobility solutions. That's the only way to counteract and prevent growing problems such as congestion, environmental pollution, and safety risks. Kapsch TrafficCom is one of the key players in the development of sustainable mobility concepts for cities.
Solutions for city traffic: smart urban mobility
Smart cities begin with smart mobility. Find out how Kapsch TrafficCom drives progress towards sustainable mobility with its smart urban traffic concepts.
Challenges in urban mobility management
Residents and visitors of cities would like to reach their destinations as quickly as possible. Local businesses want optimum connectivity. At the same time, traffic must be managed to reduce congestion to a minimum and to relieve the burden on the environment. Another important factor is the safeguarding of a high quality of life in inner cities. Reconciling these sometimes contradictory interests within the framework of smart urban mobility concepts is probably the greatest challenge cities have to face regarding their mobility management strategies.
