Micro mobility has emerged as a key factor in urban transportation systems, providing flexible and sustainable alternatives for short-distance travel. Electric scooters, bikes, and other zero-emission vehicles not only complement traditional modes of transportation but also reshape urban mobility, creating a more seamless and intelligent way of getting around.

Flexible Options for Short Trips

Micro mobility offers urban dwellers a convenient way to navigate the hustle and bustle of the city, especially for short-distance trips. Electric scooters and bikes are quick and user-friendly, facilitating effortless transitions from one point to another. This makes them an ideal solution for addressing the last-mile challenge, transforming the journey from public transportation to the final destination into a smooth experience.

Seamless Mobility in Congested Areas

The congested areas of urban centers often pose challenges for transportation, but micro mobility provides a solution where vehicles can move quickly and flexibly through traffic, bypassing congestion and efficiently reaching their destinations. This speed and flexibility make micro mobility an invaluable part of urban transportation.

Key Role in Seamless Urban Mobility

Helsinki is a pioneer in discovering and implementing new technological solutions and actively shaping the future of urban transportation, considering micro mobility and its integration into the city's transportation systems. Mobility Lab Helsinki is playing a crucial role helping companies with real users in this evolution by testing an AI and computer vision solution in traditional sensing and drones for analyzing transport modes and identifying infrastructure elements understanding micro mobility within urban environments and Digital Twin. The use of artificial intelligence and computer vision enables contributing to the development of safer and more seamless transportation solutions.

Environmental Friendliness and Sustainability

Micro mobility is not only convenient but also an environmentally friendly option. Electrically powered vehicles reduce transportation emissions, promoting sustainable urban transportation. Smaller carbon footprints make micro mobility an attractive choice for those who want to positively impact the environment.

The Future of Mobility

Evolving technologies, such as smart sensors and AI, offer more opportunities to enhance the usability and safety of these zero-emission vehicles. Collaboration with traditional transportation systems can create a harmonious urban environment where different modes of transportation work seamlessly together. The broad adoption of micro mobility in cities, combined with new initiatives indicates that the future of mobility is diverse, intelligent, and continually evolving. Zero-emission vehicles are not just a trend; they play a crucial role in the development of urban transportation towards a more seamless and sustainable future.

R&I Decentralised data spaces

Decentralized data spaces that facilitate real-time data sharing among ecosystem operators and mobility providers are essential in addressing the complex challenges of urban mobility and data sharing. These data spaces provide a foundation for innovation, efficiency, sustainability, and safe and efficient information gathering. The SEDIMARK use case pilot explores the mobility digital twin concept to lay the groundwork for future building blocks in secure decentralized mobility data spaces in urban environments.
