Cities on their way to intelligent mobility
Fujitsu is one of the world's leading providers [...] of urban mobility. This includes static data, for example on public transport routes, the location of bus stops, access roads and parking spaces, etc., but also vast amounts of dynamic data; for example
Smart Lamppost Electric Charging
[...] Through Sharing Cities, the Royal Borough of Greenwich exploited an innovative integration with smart lampposts. A London wide data platform was able to collect often real time data across electric and shared mobility schemes, providing insights into current and future operation of mobility services.
Electrified Light Vehicles Integration into Transport and Electricity...
The ELVITEN project aimed at encouraging sustainable smart mobility through the market uptake of ELVs (Light Electric Vehicles) and sensitizing users to make them familiar with such vehicles. Three main challenges were dealt with:
Users’ low awareness about the EL-Vs performance and functionalities has been acknowledged as one reason hindering the EL-Vs market penetration [...] of parking spaces and type and location of charge facilities. This lack of knowledge leads to Inadequate Mobility Planning for EL-Vs.
From Traffic Intersection to City Square
Public space is a rare resource. Currently, private cars take a lot of public space as they are parked 23 hours a day on average. In the inner city of Berlin, less than half of the households have a car. The majority of daily trips (82%) are made by foot, bicycle or public transport (source: SrV 2013). Therefore, the question arises how public space can be designed to benefit as many people as possible and promote active mobility.

Travel time optimization through queue detection technology for...
Over-head sensors have been deployed to digitize and evaluate the whole site occupancy. In addition, an algorithm that calculates waiting time dependent on number of cars in queue and number of cars on the site have been created and applied. The generated information is available on the website of WB Duisburg and their own mobile App, where citizens can check for the best opportunity and plan their trip to the most accessible site.

MITIGATING URBAN LOGISTICS IMPACT ON CLIMATE IN VERSAILLES
To understand and mitigate the climate impact of urban logistics in the city of Versailles, Urban Radar matches private and public data to provide analytics and visualisation for an efficient and sustainable curb management.
Bi-directional Electric Vehicle Charging
Most cars are idly parked 90-95% of the time. With an accelerated shift to using electric vehicles (EVs), batteries of EVs offer enormous potential in terms of using their vast collective storage capacity as a flexible solution to support the grid, which can be taxed with an intermittent renewable energy supply. Bidirectional electric vehicle charging (V2X) refers to EV chargers that allow not only for charging the battery of the EV but also for taking energy from the car battery and pushing it back to the grid when needed. There are two primary receivers of power from an EV: the grid (V2G) and the electricity from a home or building (V2H). Bi-directional charging creates greater synergy between the clean transport sector and renewable energy sources, as the car batteries can store excess energy created by variable renewable sources such as wind and solar, then provide power to the grid or home when demand is high or energy production is low. This reduces curtailment, lowers the need for grid infrastructure investments and allows for higher renewable energy integration. In addition, V2H charging can act as an emergency power source during power outages and V2G can provide vehicle owners with extra income through arbitrage of time-variable energy prices.
