Why Join? A unique longitudinal partnership of sector leaders in Intelligent Mobility (IM), with unparalleled joint experience in: IM basic research, Research into market, Infrastructure development Project management Tunis 20 June 2012

5 iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 5 IMFV Virtual Centre True Intelligence & Future Mobility Harmonisation - Public Private sectors - viable Business Model Define Advanced Technology Enablers & Standards Long/Short term planning: Road Map Eco & Smart Urban Development User/Stakeholders Needs & Requirements Funding Research Forward Thinking Projects Identifying problems Monitoring Economic, Social & Environmental Impact Tunis 20 June 2012

6 Smart Living Environment: combined Transport & Built Environment Understanding of the interrelationships of all influential factors such as social, economic, environmental, policies land use, & the built environment iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 6 Tunis 20 June 2012

7 Smart Cities -New & Old infrastructure New: Offering a unique opportunity to implement the Future Model of - Seamless Travel e.g. Arab Region Old: Many barriers & challenges - e.g. London, EU o current infrastructure, o migration from legacy systems, o take up of new systems & processes by transport system managers & operators. iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 7 Tunis 20 June 2012

8 iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 8

9 Tunis 20 June 2012 iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 9 Benefits: Promoting social inclusion and regeneration leading to economic prosperity and demographic growth. This will be achieved by providing efficient transport links, multimodal travel choices and accessibility on a national and international level. Safer travel - to reduce traffic congestion and road fatalities. Healthier travel - to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by improved network management thereby improving air quality.

10 Future Vision of iMobility in Arabia – Why? - No Legacy systems - Every New City should be an Intelligent City - Lesson learned – Avoiding repeating mistakes – using world wide expertise for future mid- long term planning Not all Arab countries have funding capabilities to support these programmes. However, the market value and success of future services and applications has better chance if the region advances in uniform manner following unified strategy and standards. Tunis 20 June 2012 iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 10

11 To Develop a Strategy that ensures the deployment of sustainable, integrated, cost effective ITSS that supports a growing economy & the rapid changes in Transport Technology iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 11 Tunis 20 June 2012 Special emphasis to be given to the definition of an ITS framework architecture addressing long term multimodal infrastructure requirements & possible organisational structures that enables larger scale implementation in future ITS Architecture

12 Travel Management Services Safe Reliable Green Comfortable Journey Information Management User Acceptance Applications Markets: Infrastructure Personal Commercial Business Case? iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 12 Tunis 20 June 2012

13 To identify requirements, problems & appropriate solutions in line with international standards, for the adaptation & support of intelligent transport systems & services deployment To generate guidelines, for example with regards to: What are the required & applicable future technologies, applications and services ? Gradual & efficient implementation of future technologies such as cooperative systems with consideration to social, economic & cultural needs- (Infrastructure, Personal & Commercial) Multimodal Information: Management, Presentation & Choice. iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 1.13 Tunis 20 June 2012

14 Arab Knowledge Base Research Groups: Future applications of cooperative systems in the MENA region (Qatar, Tunisia, UAE, Algeria……) Arabic Road Message signs &Travel information presentation Intelligent Mobility & Smart Urban Environment iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 1.14 Tunis 20 June 2012

16 Case Study: Tunisias Future in Intelligent Mobility Green – Sustainable- Integrated – Multimodal Transport Tunis 20 June 2012 iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 16 www.hud.ac.uk/imfv/publications/

17 An ITS Deployment Plan has to respond to the following questions: ITS Architecture: What ITS services do we need to deploy? Roadmap: How, Where and When to implement them? Tunis 20 June 2012 iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 17

18 Conclusion The decisions of what to deploy next may not follow a priority criteria but available budget. Hence, the question is: How to make the most of the current infrastructure? And Where to invest to achieve harmonization and return on investment? Tunis 20 June 2012 iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 18

19 Together we Build The VISION Tunis 20 June 2012 iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 19

20 What Next? Workshop - Intelligent Mobility : FutureVision in Arabia Planning for the future Building the Knowledge Base Enabling the provision of Sustainability through Urban & Transport planning for Transport Networks with greater efficiency, to serve economic growth & prosperity - Seamless Travel Looking for Sponsors & Collaborators.

22 Truly Intelligent Systems – How To? Aim to Change Behaviour (or the way of thinking) not only of end users but all stakeholders by: Reduce the need for Mobility Cost Saving by Harmonised Deployment Future Vision > Strategy > Polices & Guidelines > Planning > Design >Deployment > Monitoring > On-Going Evaluation Identifying & Clarifying Benefits to Users (travellers & operators..) Intelligent Mobility Infrastructure (funding) Knowledge Transfer for example by o Adequate training for systems operators …. o Bridging The Gap between Research, Business and Industrial worlds iMobility: Future Vision @ ITU: ICT Innovation for Development Countries 22 Tunis 20 June 2012
