In the face of dramatically increased urbanisation, Sustainable Cities and Communities has been prioritised by the UN as one of the 17 global sustainable development goals for 2030. One of the key pillars of sustainable cities is Sustainable Mobility, with one-quarter of global CO2 emissions coming from transportation of people and goods. This Sustainable Mobility Seminar will give an overview of the state of the art research in which ENABLE investigators and industry partners are engaged, including latest developments in autonomous vehicles and their impact on cities, car and ride-sharing and others.
ENABLE aims to connect communities with smart urban environments through the Internet of Things (IoT). In collaboration with industry partners and via citizen engagement, it addresses the challenges that currently limit the potential benefits of IoT for communities.
ENABLE is a collaboration of three world leading Science Foundation Ireland research centres: CONNECT, Insight and Lero.
