Book Description :

Emerging Paradigms in Urban Mobility: Planning, Finance and Implementation explains the types of new urban mobility planning paradigms that are emerging throughout the world, along with their potential to transform the transportation landscape. As half of the world’s 7 billion people now live in cities, thus causing severe road congestion, increased air pollution, energy insecurity and sustainability problems in cities and the planet itself, this book presents new paradigms that are emerging to address these problems, along with other topics of note, including economic efficiency, health, the well-being of cities and their residents, urban mobility transformations, and the role of social media. In addition, the book looks at Integrated Corridor Management and how it improves the people-moving performance of multi-modal transport systems in high demand urban corridors and how countries balance the mobility benefits of motorcycles with the environmental and safety threats they pose. Provides previously unpublished research on new approaches to integrating governance, the changing role of IT, and shared mobility initiatives Links transportation and land use, climate change, and poverty reduction and gender, going well beyond the technical issues of transport planning Highlights successful factors that have worked and how they can be tailored to different contexts Includes learning aids, such as case studies, text boxes and chapter openers and summaries

Book Description :

Tomasz Janasz demonstrates that digital technologies and new mobility concepts can lead to a reduction of the automobiles in urban areas by a factor of 10. The book features two vivid case studies of such digital mobility concepts: TwoGo by SAP and smexx. The author proposes six prototypes of business models for ‘Shared Automobility Services’. Janasz offers also the ‘Transformative Literacy’ for designing sustainable urban mobility systems of the future. The author elaborates on the socio-political patterns of urban mobility by presenting the case of the City of Basel (Switzerland). He proposes the framework of ‘Integrated Sustainable Urban Mobility’ to explain how to overcome car dependence in cities.

Book Description :

This book addresses key issues across the field of sustainable urban planning, and provides a unique reference tool for planners, engineers, architects, public administrators, and other experts. The evolution of cities and communities is giving rise to pressing energy and environmental problems that demand concrete solutions. In this context, urban planning is inevitably a complex activity that requires a sound analytical interpretation of ongoing developments, multidisciplinary analysis of the available tools and technologies, appropriate political management, and the ability to monitor progress objectively in order to verify the effectiveness of the policies implemented. This book is exceptional in both the breadth of its coverage and its focus on the interactions between different elements. Individual sections focus on strategies and tools for green planning, energy efficiency and sustainability in city planning, sustainable mobility, rating systems, and the smart city approach to improving urban-scale sustainability. The authors draw on their extensive practical experience to provide operational content supplementing the theoretical and methodological elements covered in the text, and each section features informative case studies.

Book Description :

This book discusses cars of the future and the new socio-economic paradigm that they represent. It examines the electromobility revolution in the traditional automotive industry and brings together multidisciplinary expertise to provide insights into the shift towards electromobility. New vehicular technologies may develop in various directions, including the smart car, and this context raises two important questions: will car manufactures maintain control over the industry? And if so, will they be able to come up with sufficiently radical innovations to steer us into the electromobility of tomorrow? One thing is certain: the transition to electromobility will be a revolution. The book’s combined approach to understanding this complex reality enables readers to better visualize the possible future directions. It offers anyone interested in electromobility an excellent review of the subject and a useful roadmap to future developments.

Book Description :

Improving urban air quality has become a policy priority for the European Union, national governments and city authorities as more evidence comes to light of the harmful health effects of road traffic pollution. This book clearly illustrates how to work towards effective policies for improved urban air quality.The authors argue that designing and implementing successful policies is not just a matter of deciding on the most appropriate technological solutions. A process of institution building has to take place which works towards consensus among a variety of potentially divergent interests; from the police and highway authorities to business interests and citizens. Making use of policy network theory, this volume presents studies of attempts to build such coalitions, and the factors that have often frustrated them, in countries such as Canada, France, Italy and Switzerland. This book provides a major contribution to the theoretical and empirical understanding of the policies needed to combat road traffic pollution.The Politics of Improving Urban Air Quality will prove invaluable to scholars of environmental studies and public policy.

Book Description :

This book is a critical reflection on the Smart City Mission in India. Drawing on ethnographic data from across Indian cities, this volume assesses the transformative possibilities and limitations of the program. It examines the ten core infrastructural elements that make up a city, including water, electricity, waste, mobility, housing, environment, health, and education, and lays down the basic tenets of urban policy in India. The volume underlines the need to recognize liminal spaces and the plans to make the ‘smart city’ an inclusive one. The authors also look at maintaining a link between the older heritage of a city and the emerging urban space. This volume will be of great interest to planners, urbanists, and policymakers, as well as scholars and researchers of urban studies and planning, architecture, and sociology and social anthropology.

Book Description :

In many countries, the exclusive concentration on a simple extension of the road based transportation network led to growing individual car traffic hence to additional demand for roads and striking external effects of transport. All issues have a severe negative impact on the living and working conditions within many urban centers. In the last decade, especially in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region, municipalities tried to restrict continuous growth of car traffic and intensified their efforts in supporting alternative concepts with focus on environmentally-friendly mobility approaches. However, many of these approaches were quite ambitious and innovative but often rather implemented in a disintegrated way. The transport research activities that have been conducted during the project runtime of the Young Cities in Iran project within in the BMBF (German Federal Ministry of Research and Education) funded Megacities program investigated the urban transport sector of the MENA region in general and the one of Iran in detail. The researchers revealed that the Iranian urban public transport planning system is lacking coordination between the level of the Urban Transportation Masterplan and the level of public transport operators. This publication analyses the tool of the Local (Public) Transport Plan which is already used in many agglomerations worldwide to define fixed quality and service standards for urban public transport. It, moreover, investigates the Iranian urban transport planning system and suggests a way how to adapt the tool to fit with Iranian conditions. In vielen Städten weltweit hat die alleinige Ausrichtung der Verkehrsplanung auf die Erweiterung der straßenbasierten Verkehrsinfrastruktur zu einem weiteren Anstieg des motorisierten Individualverkehrs geführt. Die wachsenden externen Effekte des motorisierten Individualverkehrs haben sich zunehmend negativ auf die Lebens- und Arbeitsbedingungen in vielen urban Zentren ausgewirkt und diese nachhaltig beeinträchtigt. In der vergangenen Dekade haben zahlreiche Stadtverwaltungen, insbesondere jene der MENA (Mittlerer Osten, Nord Afrika) - Region dem Wachstum des motorisierten Individualverkehrs Einhalt zu gebieten. In diesem Zusammenhang wurden vor allem Anstrengungen unternommen die Umsetzung alternativer Planungskonzepte mit Fokus auf umweltverträglicheren Verkehrsträgern zu befördern. Viele dieser Ansätze waren sehr ambitioniert und innovativ wurden jedoch häufig nur in einer sehr desintegrierten Weise umgesetzt. Die Verkehrsforschungsaktivitäten die während der Projektlaufzeit des vom BMBF geförderten Young Cities Projektes unternommen wurden, konzentrierten sich vornehmlich auf die Verkehrsentwicklung der Städte in der MENA Region im Allgemeinen und die des Iran im Besonderen. Eine Erkenntnis dieser Aktivitäten war dass es dem iranischen Planungssystem an Koordination zwischen der Ebene des Verkehrsentwicklungsplans und den semi-privaten Unternehmen öffentlichen Verkehrsunternehmen mangelt. Diese Publikation analysiert das Werkzeug des in vielen Städten weltweit angewandten „Local Transport Plan“ dahingehend ob es geeignet wäre diese Koordinierungslücke zu füllen und verbindliche Standards für Qualität und Angebot im öffentlichen Nahverkehr iranischer Städte zu setzen. In diesem Zusammenhang wird auch das iranische städtische Verkehrsplanungssystem genauer beleuchtet und es werden Möglichkeiten aufgezeigt dieses Werkzeug in das iranische Planungssystem zu integrieren.
