Smart Mobility Symposium by Eindhoven University of Technology
Fast transition to smarter and sustainable mobility
How technology will rapidly change transport & mobility

The information era has reached the world of transport and mobility. Many stakeholders are struggling with the consequences. Will traffic management be a self-regulating system of well-informed individuals? Will all street furniture become redundant? Will technology solve all negative effects of mobility?

The TU/e Smart Mobility Symposium takes you into the world of current and future research on intelligent and clean cars, smart logistics systems and intelligent transport systems. In this symposium international speakers from academia, OEM and navigation industry will present and discuss the future development and its consequences for traffic management, transport systems, for policy and business models.

Within the strategic area Smart Mobility the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU-e) focuses on the societal challenge presented by the everlasting demand for mobility and the impact this has on our space and environment. The TU-e believes that technology can counter a big part of the problem and therefore is committed to develop knowledge and innovative technologies to realize sustainable mobility for the society. Research contributes to making mobility and transport more intelligent and productive and to making vehicles safer, cleaner and more efficient.
