The FISITA Member Forum Smart Cities, Smart Mobility Output Paper Q4 2020

This Output Paper presents the highlights of the Groupe Renault-hosted FISITA Member Forum on smart cities and smart mobility 

Defining a smart city requires consideration of different concepts for the city, including space, city planning, and the needs and expectations of its citizens. 

Smart mobility generally involves the use of technology to enable transport that is faster, cleaner, and more efficient than existing solutions, sometimes using new and shared micromobility offerings such as electric scooters and bicycles, with app-based payment.  

At the heart of both smart concepts lies a combination of factors which, if carefully coordinated, will increase energy efficiency, minimise consumption, waste and overall cost, reduce congestion and travel time, cut emissions and pollution, and benefit commercial stakeholders and the wider community. 

About this FISITA Output Paper 

In the first session of the recently created “FISITA Member Forum,” an invitational group of experts gathered via FISITA and the leadership of Groupe Renault to commence a dialog exploring the very current and relevant topic of “Smart Cities and Smart Mobility.” This paper is the outcome of that initial engagement, acting as a record of the thoughts and opinions in a moment in time and delivering further collaborative thought leadership in this area in support of onward cooperation for the FISITA membership community.
