International experts from the fields of design, infrastructure and architecture were presenting their ideas on future mobility and discussing them with members of the LOEWE project “Infrastructure – Design – Society” (project-mo.de). The conference was concentrating on three major areas:
PANEL 1: MOBILITY SYSTEMS – designing intermodal moving vehicles
dealt with different objects which are moving in a mobility system and their potential to create a positive experience. This applied equally to public transport such as bus, train or metro just as it does to cars, bicycles or shared/ride-shared vehicles.
PANEL 2: MOBILITY HUBS – designing the infrastructure
focused on overarching infrastructures which connect mobility hubs and enable people to access different vehicles as well as the entire mobility system including for example, architecture, urban design, planning or wayfinding systems.
PANEL 3: MOBILITY AS A SERVICE (MaaS) – designing digital access
explored the user’s digital interaction with a mobility system. Mobility should be seen as a service where connectivity, user experience and interfaces create seamless usability for the user.
SHORT TALKS: MOBILITY RESEARCH– designing questions
gave insights into the project-mo.de doctoral program with interdisciplinary research and methodological aspects concerning flow, links and hubs in the Rhine/Main region.
