Final International Symposium for the STREET LIFE Project

STREET LIFE is an international project looking at multimodal, mobile and green transportation solutions in the cities of Berlin, Tampere and Rovereto. The focus has been on the reduction of CO2 emissions, improving urban transport, and changing the mobility habits of citizens.

The project is holding its final international symposium on September 16, 2016 in Trento, Italy. The STREET LIFE project is funded by the European Union under and the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) was responsible for the integration of multiple data sources and the establishment of a unified STREETLIFE data interface, as well as design and development of a new Mobility App for Berlin.

The main results of the Berlin STREET LIFE pilots are:

  • The existing Berlin Initiative for increased safety when cycling was supported by the Mobility App by identifying many danger spots for cyclists.
  • Additional bicycle use resulted for 38% of participants.
  • The successful integration of gamification in the Mobility app was acknowledged by users as the main reason for changing their mobility habits.

The International symposium will take place in Trento along with the second IEEE International Conference on Smart Cities (ISC2 2016) from 12 to 15 September.

In addition to the themes raised by the STREET LIFE project, the following keynote addresses on current topics in green mobility will be covered:

  • Gilles Betis, Transdev Digital Factory: Open Mobility Data: A new common for new usages,
  • Jannicke Baalsrud Hauge, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and GaPSLabs, Stockholm: Gamification of Mobility and Transport Planning. Opportunities, challenges and limits
  • Prof. Martin Felldorf, Graz University of Technology: Models for emission-based Traffic Management
