Project description

Deploy new communication networks enabling intelligent management of future cities.

Mobility is a growing challenge for cities. Indeed, projections estimate that by 2050, the urban population will increase by 70% from 3.6 to 6.3 billion people. In this context, states, local authorities and businesses must invest significantly to create or modernize physical infrastructure, develop new services or design and deploy communication networks for intelligent management of these cities.

Launched in 2016 for a period of 4 years, the MSM project aims to provide solutions to improve and streamline the movement of users in urban areas. For this, it relies on a digital platform integrating dynamic and predictive models for the simulation of mobility and behavior of people at the neighborhood scale. Better modeling of behaviors but also a more accurate prediction of travel demand will help to better understand the users mobility at local and urban levels.

Expected results

  • Improve the efficiency and productivity of networks and mobility infrastructures ;
  • Develop new concepts of multimodal mobility for the first and last miles ;
  • Design and model a Robot Taxi service in urban environment.

Implemented skills

Data science and AI
Scientific computing

Targeted targets

  • AOM (Mobility Organizing Authority) ;
  • Transport authority ;
  • Collectivities and transport solution actors like operators and providers.
