Do you drive a car in metropolitan area? Come and test how to make motoring routes smoother and safer.

During the autumn, an international Code the Streets pilot will be implemented in metropolitan area, where motorists will be offered alternative driving routes with a navigator. We are now looking for testers for the navigation app who have an Android phone.
Future Digital Mobility Management

The aim is to find out how motorists are guided to choose more sustainable routes, while increasing traffic flow. Motorists are helped to avoid selected areas that may be congested, for example, may already have degraded air quality, or may be areas that require special attention to road safety, such as school and kindergarten environments at certain times of the day.

The contact person for Aalto University's research is Claudio Roncoli, Assistant Professor of Transportation Engineering, claudio.roncoli (a) aalto.fi. Participants are promised a small fee.

Dominic Stead: Cities that need less transport

Organizing our cities differently can help us to reduce the need for transport and encourage more walking and cycling. This can help to reduce many of the negative environmental and social impacts of transport, says Professor Stead in his installation lecture.
