Rooftop Design Talks presents:
Urban mobility is a complex field of study that requires multidisciplinary knowledge considering the variety of relevant skills. In this framework, the research approach of Transform Transport is based on the application of technology-enabled spatial analysis methods, commonly known as Urban Informatics.
This discipline is an evidenced-based approach that, thanks to the recent development of advanced ICTs and the increasing availability of digitally widespread data sources, has led to innovative assessment tools and metrics that can provide valuable support to city decision-makers by unveiling hidden mobility patterns.
Moreover, our research is based on a user-centric approach that focuses on the design and management of public transport services and infrastructure by considering the needs and expectations of the city users. As highlighted by the UN’s SDG 11-Sustainable cities and communities, urban mobility should be designed to be inclusive for women, children, the elderly, and people with impaired mobility.
