HARMONY at Commercial Micromobility Conference: Middle East

HARMONY was presented during the Commercial Micromobility Conference, displaying a new generation of harmonised spatial and multimodal transport planning tools for the transport sector and spatial organisation on 1st of April 2021.

What is the Commercial Micromobility Conference?

Micromobility, which involves light weighted means of transportation such as electric scooters and bike for short trips mostly in urban areas, is growing internationally and making its way into Middle Eastern cities. One of the reasons for their sudden success is that they have solved the long-standing problem of the last mile and exploited a neglected gap in the market.

City dwellers and visitors struggle with first/last mile transportation, congestion and cost. It’s also inefficient for a large, gas-guzzling vehicle to carry one person for a short distance. Many micromobility players are venturing into the Middle East and partnering with local companies to bring innovation and develop the right products and services for the region.

 

How did HARMONY participate?

Chief innovation officer at ENIDE, Vicent Pastor hosted the presentation focused on the development of the Model Suite. He stated the vision on the new generation of harmonised spatial and multimodal transport planning tools for spatial organisation and the transport sector, giving out a simplified description of the Model Suite Structure and it’s conceptual architecture, to make a more accessible understatement of the main outcomes for the project.
