On the 13-14 June 2019 in Stockholm, ITRL held the CIT'19 Conference which focussed on the impacts of disruptive technologies on travel and transport. You can read more about the conference below, as well as find links to the program, keynote speakers, and contacts.
We are entering a new era of mobility driven by a technical revolution with the power to reshape travel and transport. Traditional transport modes are being redefined by connectivity, automation and shared services. Self-driving vehicles and electrification are paving the way to future mobility, and the way people and goods move from one point to another is changing. In this shift, several questions arise: How are connectivity and automation changing the way we travel in cities? What will the new technology mean for supply chains and transport demands? How can regulators and policymakers support progress for sustainable mobility? The future of travel and transport is coming, but are we ready for it?
CIT19 was a conference held in the summer of 2019 with the purpose of discussing how disruptive technologies influence the mobility ecosystem and how they could affect different stakeholders. CIT19 aimed to assess the potentials of emerging disruptive technologies for mobility solutions and consider their impacts on travel and transport as well as on different stakeholders.
Topics included, but were not limited to:
- Developments in e-mobility
- Connected and autonomous vehicles
- Effects on travel and transport behaviour
- Evaluation and modelling of system level impacts
- Business model innovation
- Impacts of Mobility as a Service on transport ecosystem
- Governance & Policy
CIT19 provided a creative and intimate setting for researchers from all around the world to see and discuss cutting edge research on impacts of disruptive technology on travel and transport from an integrated perspective. In the conference, we discussed technology, societal impacts, related policies, user acceptance and other recent results related to all new transport concepts.
