Sustainable Transportation Infrastructure
Nowadays cities are facing big challenges regarding pollution, public health, inclusivity, and accessibility among others. In the Barcelona Metropolitan Area (AMB) we have been working hard to implement different solutions to address these challenges and we can already see some results. From the implementation of the Low Emissions Zone in Barcelona to cyclologistics, I will explain innovative actions that AMB is doing within its territory.
As the move towards “the user pays” gets more and more adapted within countries and cities, setting up a fair €/$-charge for using the roads and infrastructure is becoming a task for specialized teams.
What price will be charged:
- What roads?
- Time of day dependent
- Eco-class differentiation
- Weight or Axles dependent (HGV)
and what will be the impact on driver behavior when a Road User Charge will be implemented?
Be-Mobile delivers a suite of services that give answers to all these questions and makes it easier for all stakeholders in the tolling arena.
An overview of the delivery and impact of the Danish LEZ scheme after a year of operation. This will highlight the design choices, technology challenges and operational decisions taken in the delivery of this Nationwide scheme, with some COVID-19 challenges along the way!
Road crashes are one of the most serious problems of today's societies and are considered a public health issue. It is the first cause of death in the youngest and the eighth for all ages. Every year 1.35 million people die, about 3.700 people a day, 1 person every 23 seconds, in addition to the 50 million who get injured and permanently disabled. It is the greatest cause of disability, and yet it remains an almost invisible epidemic.
At this rate, and if nothing is done, it is estimated that by 2030, 500 million people will be dead or disabled in consequence of a road accident, the equivalent of 2/3 of the EU population. How can we, human, built a system that kills us? Can we accept it? No we can´t! It is time to act and to save lives!
We cannot talk about the future of mobility without have safety as a central issue.
The mobility model for the future has to be Clean, Sustainable, Connected and Automated but it has also to be Safe. Implementing self-explaining, forgiving and inclusive road infrastructures, for all, that not only serve people, but protect but protect their lives is an emergency.
All of society depends on mobility systems every day, and we can't feel at risk every day. Road safety and mobility safety must be the priority of an entire society: every life that is lost, every person that is seriously injured is a tragedy that can be avoided.

Continental will present the next step of a road user charging system in order to enable the EETS Tolling utilizing the highly secure and widely available Digital Tachograph.
Join this session to understand how to:
- Harness cost savings without the need of a dedicated Toll OnBoard Unit
- Enhance security and reliability by using an Automotive OEM deployed equipment for Toll collection
- Easily activate value added and compliance services for additional revenue
- Achieve faster system integration and go-to market with DTCO and Proxy Toll services.
- Prepare for the upcoming mobility package regulation
The introduction of SmartMove, the Brussels government will be implementing its tax reform agreed in the 2019 coalition agreement: a tax system that no longer starts from owning the car, but from its use. This smart kilometre charge takes into account both the number of kilometres driven and the time of travel. For example, a driver will pay more during peak hours and less during off-peak hours, in the evening, at night, or on weekends. In addition, the social dimension is also taken into account, with the rate varying according to the vehicle's motorisation. At the same time, the LEZ will further evolve into a more or less complete ‘diesel ban’. We will talk about the impacts of both combined on congestion and environment.
