Our Solutions

Harmony will provide decision makers with a new generation of tools, policy recommendations and guidelines to lead the transition to the new mobility era. Our solutions will bridge the transport gap between metropolitan regions and neighbouring areas, working towards a resilient, sustainable, and intermodal transport system.

Our main solutions will be:

Model suite

It is a platform bringing together transport and spatial planning tools, people and freight activity-based models, network models and land-use models. This integrated approach is necessary for authorities to understand if policies are sustainable, while also contribute to meeting COP22 targets, social equality and wellbeing. The Harmony model suite is also linked to an EU-wide model to analyse the impact of the concepts and technologies on the TEN-T level.

Training material and activities

Authorities and transport professionals will develop skills and knowledge to use the model suite tools. They will also provide advice for future projects and exploitation activities.

Best practices for SUMPs

The best practices for SUMPs will provide authorities with evidence-based recommendations to update their Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans, including autonomous vehicles and drones.

Harmony activities will also envisage:

  • Workshops where citizens, authorities and industry will design together with new mobility concepts.
  • Demonstrations in 6 different cities and metropolitan areas with electric autonomous vehicles and drones to understand their requirements.
  • Market surveys to understand people and freight operators’ preferences and reactions towards new mobility technologies.

Harmony’s final result will be a set of recommendations for regional authorities to plan their short-, med-, and long-term strategies and update their Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). These guidelines will close the gap between understanding and planning the mobility of the future.
