Mobility, Energy and Smart Cities

Smart cities (present and future)‎ provide full real time information to all citizens and options on mobility, while minimizing energy usage. In this talk we shall review some of our research for a speed advisory for fuel usage in cars. We shall also introduce a program we are initiating with the City of Columbus on providing self driving vehicles that will help the mobility impaired in their "first-mile last-mile" issues. Finally, we shall discuss the possibilities of developing a software architecture to cover all needs for full integration.
