Across the world, urban transport is feeling strain from environmental pressures and congestion. A recent video, published by ARUP, explains how smart mobility initiatives like oneTRANSPORT and Drive Smart are helping cities tackle the growing problem.

oneTRANSPORT uses Internet of Things technology to share existing transport data to enable expert developers and analytics communities to develop new public information services and tools. The project aims to improve travel experiences for customers and generate new revenues for local authorities on a truly nationwide basis. The two-year commercially-focused project was proposed by a consortium that consists of eleven partners including ARUP and InterDigital Europe.

Drive Smart is a program that offers benefits to New York City drivers through an extensive in-vehicle data collection while designed to reduce congestion, pollution and crashes. ARUP created the program alongside New York City Department of Transportation to help drivers save time and money and drive safely.

Smart mobility is about making transport networks safer, more sustainable and efficient. Initiatives such as oneTRANSPORT and Drive Smart are designed to take transport to the next level and change the world a little bit. Click here to watch how intelligent transport services can change the way cities move.
