The main lever for growth has always been the economy and the same is true for sustainable mobility. The steady cost increase of petrol has acquired a deterrent effect on mobility abuse, as the latter is less and less sustainable for the environment, detrimental for human mood and even for the wallet. It’s the time for a cultural revolution, which would put means of transportation into service for humans and not vice versa. Nowadays it survives the stereotype of a freedom linked to an automobile, a concept regularly denied when stuck in an endless traffic jam with a speeding electric train passing by.
The mobility concept itself needs to be modified, as mobility should be the result of integration of public and private means, rented vehicles included.
The encounter between the projects by the Lab for Sustainability and the competences of engineer Mauro Forghieri may be the starting point for mobility as a main target within a sustainability development.
From this vision convergence, i.e. from engineer Mauro Forghieri, a myth in automotive, from city halls aiming at sustainability, from “Le Città del Bio”, from the commitment in sustainable project and opportunities, from the Lab for Sustainability, even from local labs, new concrete applications will derive.
The sustainable mobility projects arise from the mutual effort and support of competent and farsighted industries and they aim at the production of automotive and infrastructures, involving all those who share the same objective and related opportunities (e.g. industries, banks, etc. ).
An industrial plan, which foresees the development of research activities in Italy and Switzerland with a Chinese production, could start instead in Rumania, where an all-terrain vehicle for Eastern Europe, ARO, was produced and where an important public implementation is also planned, linked to energetic efficiency projects substantially supported by the E.U. In all Europe thanks to Swiss structures, new telecommunications infrastructures will be created with the purpose of managing means, individual users or companies fleet and car sharing firms.
In the development of the sustainable mobility project a key element will be the widespread network of the Sustainability Labs, which will not only demonstrates its capabilities, but will also manage the support and troubleshooting issues, promoting new projects in the public administration and, accordingly to the due price competitiveness, even in the private sector.The production will include even the development of some means with peculiar characteristics. Among others there will be an electric van ideal for public purposes and a pick up for farmers, particularly alluring for the “Città del Bio” to be implemented for touristic tours (i.e. within parks, reserves) .
The integrated computerized technology deserves a particular attention, since not only will it steer every function of the vehicle, but it will also lead the user to the loading and service network, to the car sharing activity and to the touristic attractions of the area, to the telecoms infrastructures for traffic information, and safety measures to be followed within urban areas.
