The project SU+MA SISTEM, beyond traditional services within the urban area, will focus its efforts on providing a range of products and innovative urban services for advanced mobility that can provide high added value to local councils in managing their mobility, directing these towards the desired goal of making municipalities a referent of the Smart Mobility and Smart City.
The project SU+MA will have a portfolio of products with a complete, dynamic and scalable platform to undertake the most effective way possible a proper immersion in the world of Smart City projects, with special attention to municipalities of a medium and small size that until now not have the resources to address it.
The first firm commitment that SYSTEM has made in this regard was the establishment of the Chair SISTEM of support for innovation and efficient management and sustainable mobility, entrusted to the University of Valencia.
The “Chair SISTEM of support for innovation and efficient management and sustainable urban mobility” has as its starting point two phenomena: the traffic and the road accidents.
Regarding the traffic we have to consider that the displacements is one of the activities that encloses many others that we do every day such as going to work, displacements during the work itself and relative to leisure.
Regarding to road accidents, we must consider that it is one of the leading causes of death to which modern societies are facing.
Another aspect that the Chair intends to address is urban areas, a vial special role scenario where two circumstances of particular relevance: most of our movements are produced in this area and despite the mentioned general trend of reduction of accidents; they have increased in cities in both the rate and severity.
And the last aspect included in the Chair in its research and dissemination activity is the use of new technologies and their relationship with the human factor in the context of road safety and mobility. This is a growing area of interest in relation to the users, both as regards the administrators of these technologies and end-users (drivers, passengers and pedestrians).
With all, among the main objectives of the project SU+MA are the definition and implementation of customized, integrated and innovative solutions for urban mobility to increase efficiency:
Consequently the principles that govern the project SU+MA are:
- Ongoing focus on the generation of value to both the city councils and citizens.
- Commitment to innovation and differentiation.
- Customized action plan for each municipality.
All this means the scientific and innovative character, through innovation and rigorous evaluation of measures and countermeasures implemented, sometimes in early stages pilot basis, will enable maximize available resources in order to solve the problems that are presented to traffic and road safety managers and ultimately citizens.
