Sustainable City Logistics Mobility Infrastructure Pollution Reduction

On 28 June Bucharest has welcomed to the second Mobility Solutions Showroom co-organised by EIT Urban Mobility and Civitas Elevate and Civinet Romania. Pre-selected companies from EIT Urban Mobility’s Solutions Catalogue have been invited to pitch their solutions to address the needs of Romanian cities. The companies shared their experiences in front of representatives of Romanian public authorities, municipalities, companies, and public transport operators, in piloting and implementing their products and services in European cities, and how these could generate an impact in the Romanian community.

  • VePa, a concept of vertical parking that is intended to revolutionise the idea of parking in urban areas, which is primarily affected by excess parked vehicles. Simon Schubnell, co-founder and CEO of the company, presented how VePa has established several pilots in different German cities. Vepa’s parking solutions provide up to 12 parking spaces using the area of only 2 existing spaces. Add sustainable features such as electric charging stations, photovoltaics and facade greening.
  • EVIO, represented by its CEO, Carlos Almeida, presented a digital platform with a variety of services for the EV charging ecosystem. Services are available for different users, from vehicle drivers to fleet and infrastructure managers. Evio offers services such as operating, managing, monetising and scheduling charging stations. The company is committed to promote sustainable charging and has a considerable deployment in Portugal and in other European cities.
  • Another interesting solution was presented by Alwin Bakker, founder of Code the Streets: They offer a software solution for municipalities to support them in improving their urban mobility. Code the Streets provides cities with a co-design service to identify opportunities to improve their traffic management, reduce congestion and pollution and increase safety. These are implemented through the app, combined with behaviour-change incentives to promote citizens and travellers to make safer, more sustainable, and societally friendlier mobility choices.
  • Fluctuo was another innovation with focus on shared mobility showcased during the showroom by Sébastien Marteau, CCO of the company. As pan-European data platform for urban shared mobility, Fluctuo gathers data from 250 shared mobility providers in Europe. This data is displayed on its API, the Fluctuo Data Flow, showing the the real-time availability of shared mobility services in user’s area directly. In addition, Sébastien also presented their solution Fluctuo City Dive, a business intelligence tool addressed to public stakeholders and private companies to make data-driven decisions on mobility services and infrastructure.
  • ModelMe3D, represented in the Mobility Solutions Showroom by Samuel Alvarado, developed an interactive urban planning platform. This tool can be used by urban planners to engage citizens in their decision-making process. Using 3D models of city environments, citizens can suggest infrastructure changes on the models. These are then analysed using AI and provided to the urban planners to feed into their urban planning process.
  • Finally, a mobility infrastructure solution, Zicla was introduced at the event. Their representatives in Romania, Raluca Popescu and Viorel Tirdea presented a few product samples of cycle lanes safety devices. These Zicla products are currently used to upgrade cycle lanes and create a safer environment for cycling without disturbing or causing aesthetic damage to the environment.
