Picto Shared mobility and energy


Transforming mobility-related behaviour through the understanding of imagined scenarios and uses

  • Exploring imagined lifestyle and mobility scenarios
  • Identifying and measuring actual mobility flows and practices to understand motivations and obstacles
  • Accompanying the emergence of new mobility systems conceived jointly by experts and urban/transport users taking a design approach
  • Backing innovation with new economic models

Research themes

  • Knowledge of different forms of mobility (visualisation, quantification, segmentation and qualification)
  • Car-sharing ecosystem
  • Car-pooling ecosystem
  • Other ecosystems (digital mobility and intermodal assistance, electric vehicles, connected vehicles, self-driving vehicles, and other innovative solutions)
  • Tools for co-design, creating scenarios, evaluation and for learning mobility

Project description

The laboratory of new uses aims to explore, design and assess new sustainable mobility solutions.

This involves:

  • the description and understanding of mobility flows,
  • the analysis of psychological, ergonomic, sociological and economic levers and obstacles to the development of new solutions,
  • the implementation of relevant design and evaluation tools.

Over three years, it aims to develop expertise and to position itself for the long term on the mobility research market.

Future prospects

  • Understanding the activities that trigger mobility, in liaison with the ANR Norm-Atis project
  • Public policies and incentive schemes to drive the mobility transformation
  • Mobility for all as a new field for research and action, in liaison with the City on the Move Institute (IVM), a VEDECOM’s partner

Research into the conditions for acceptability of new electric, self-driving or shared mobility solutions, with projects implemented at VEDECOM.
