Pilot Project Components
Advocating for a Change
An e-micromobility revolution is sweeping Europe and some parts of North America, which is fueled by the rising e-commerce last mile deliveries. Most of Asia already moves via this mode, where the green revolution is gathering momentum.
– Applied research is scientific study and research that seeks to solve practical problems.
– By its nature, applied research needs to control as many variables as possible, and for those we will not be able to control, we will
need to describe the conditions for your readers.
– New knowledge is gained because it has specific commercial objectives as products, procedures, or services.
The Rosebank Green e-Micromobility pilot project will contribute by:
– Running bike delivery service using e-bikes from retailers in one node.
– Capturing and telling of the story green e-micromobility in an urban node Johannesburg, South Africa and the unique modifications the research leaders would have to make to ensure success in this situation.
– The applied research approach will tell a story based on data collected under scientific experimental control.
– The data will contribute to the literature, inform policy and provide a comprehensive baseline of location-specific data for comparability and replication.
Pilot: Leaders & Management
Government participants shaping the Green Mobility and Smart Ecosystem in the study area
Location and Duration of Pilot
Green mobility is an approach to transportation that focuses on reducing pollution and emissions by using renewable, environmentally friendly energy sources, such as electric vehicles, public transportation, and bicycles. It also includes initiatives that reduce congestion, such as car–sharing, ride–hailing services, and telecommuting. Ultimately, green mobility seeks to reduce the environmental impact of transportation while improving mobility for people and goods
E–micromobility refers to the use of small, lightweight, electric vehicles for short–distance transportation. Examples of e–micromobility vehicles include electric bicycles, electric scooters, and electric skateboards. This form of transportation is becoming
Smart mobility is a system for managing the flow of people and goods in an efficient and sustainable manner. It utilizes digital technologies such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things to support the efficient movement of people, goods, and services. Smart mobility also incorporates the use of incentives to encourage people to choose public transportation and other forms of alternative transportation, such as walking and cycling, over private motor vehicles. Smart mobility is a key component in creating a more sustainable and livable urban environment.
A smart mobility ecosystem is a system of interconnected components that work together to create an efficient, safe, and cost–effective transportation network. It includes a variety of components such as infrastructure, vehicles, services, digital technologies, and policies that are designed to make transportation more efficient, accessible, and sustainable. This ecosystem allows for the seamless integration of different mobility modes and the development of innovative services and products that can improve the overall user experience.
