Analyst Insight: Transformations in Urban Mobility

Smart City Tracker Insights

Mobility and transportation are the heartbeat of any city. EV support, autonomous vehicles (AVs), connected V2X, intelligent transportation systems, smart parking and traffic management systems, public transport innovations, micromobility services, and mobility as a service options (MaaS), are playing a role in the transformation of urban mobility. Together with changes in urban policy and design, smart city applications for urban transportation constitute an exciting growth space for industry stakeholders, and can advance positive change across domains such as: health, environmental sustainability, and city-wide economic growth.

Of the 941 smart city projects now tracked by Guidehouse Insights, 252 tracked projects, that is 27% of the overall total, are transport-focussed. 

Drawing from the latest Smart City tracker database and supported by analysis from the Guidehouse Insights Micromobility and e-Mobility research services, this Guidehouse Insights report summarizes recent transformations in mobility. Within the context of the Smart City, the report examinesmarket trends across micromobility, EV support infrastructure, and AVs. A regional market overview for smart city applications, together with key recommendations and conclusions from the sector, follow.
