Space Applications for Urban Mobility

Urban MobilityThis paper presented at the 2012 Toulouse Space Show, France aims at underlining, through concrete examples, how European cities make the most of satellite information and services, and satellite navigation in particular, to achieve sustainable urban mobility and create viable alternatives to owning a private vehicle. Without being exhaustive, the operational examples described also show how the integration of satellite information and services in urban mobility strategies benefits other policy areas of increasing importance, like health and social inclusion.
