This book adds a critical perspective to the legal dialogue on the regulation of ‘smart urban mobility’. Mobility is one of the most visible sub-domains of the ‘smart city’, which has become shorthand for technological advances that influence how cities are structured, public services are fashioned, and citizens coexist. In the urban context, mobility has come under pressure due to a variety of different forces, such as the implementation of new business models (e.g. car and bicycle sharing), the proliferation of alternative methods of transportation (e.g. electric scooters), the emergence of new market players and stakeholders (e.g. internet and information technology companies), and advancements in computer science (in particular due to artificial intelligence). At the same time, demographic changes and the climate crisis increase innovation pressure. In this context law is a seminal factor that both shapes and is shaped by socio-economic and technological change. This book puts a spotlight on recent developments in smart urban mobility from a legal, regulatory, and policy perspective. It considers the implications for the public sector, businesses, and citizens in relation to various areas of public and private law in the European Union, including competition law, intellectual property law, contract law, data protection law, environmental law, public procurement law, and legal philosophy.

Methods of advanced data collecting and their analysis, models which help with decision problems as well as technical solutions which improve the integrity of contemporary transport systems at urban area are only some of many problems connected with integration in passenger and freight transport which have been discussed in this book. The book expresses case study-based scientific and practical approach to the problems of contemporary transport systems. The proposed methods and models enable a system approach to assess current solutions. In turn, implementation proposals may support the improvement of the integrity of individual elements of transport systems, and thus increase its effectiveness on the global scale. With regard to the research results discussed and the selected solutions applied, the book primarily addresses the needs of three target groups: • Scientists and researchers (ITS field) • Local authorities (responsible for the transport systems at the urban and regional level) • Representatives of business (traffic strategy management) and industry (manufacturers of ITS components). This book gathers selected papers presented at the 15th Scientific and Technical Conference “Transport Systems. Theory and Practice” organised by the Department of Transport Systems and Traffic Engineering at the Faculty of Transport of the Silesian University of Technology. The conference was held in Katowice, Poland on September 17–19, 2018.

Home to an ever growing share of the world's population and facing dramatic and extremely dynamic social transformations, economic challenges and environmental problems, cities are undoubtedly the key arena of the history of the 21st century. As cities strive to be more and more attractive, sustainable and efficient, they must also become smarter. Related to this, no city can aspire to play a leading - global or local - role if its mobility system is not smart enough. Urban mobility becomes smart when smart actors take advantage of smart technology in the context of smart regulations, policies, plans and interactions. In a smart mobility system, real-time big data is collected from, shared among and used by controllers, travellers, vehicles, and infrastructure. Local and global decision makers integrate and analyse data, make short and long-term predictions based on the resulting information, and take actions to improve travel experience and system operations while reducing the consumption of resources and the impact on the environment. Smart and connected (and in the next future driverless) vehicles; alternative fuel and electric vehicles; car and bike sharing schemes; vehicle tracking technologies; advanced traveler real-time information; smart booking, hailing and ticketing systems; communication through social media and virtual networks are but a few of the phenomena that characterise cities' changing mobility paradigms; more will be developing. Nowadays people want to buy mobility packages and vehicles manufacturers are restyling themselves as mobility service providers. Further research is clearly needed in concepts, approaches, technologies and behaviors related to smart urban mobility systems. The book aims to foster reflection on smart mobility in urban contexts. In particular the book includes: contributions areas on visions, policy and plans, case studies, evaluation, analysis and simulation of urban smart mobility systems. Topics include: - New concepts, case studies, and benchmarking of smart urban mobility - Agent behavior in smart urban mobility system - Big data and advanced real-time traveler information in urban context - Economic and environmental impacts of smart urban mobility - Wider transport policy implications of smart urban mobility and on urban areas - Institutional and legal aspects of smart urban mobility This book will be of interest to transport planners, policy makers, transport and geography academics, and companies working in the field of Intelligent Transport Systems.

This book sets the innovative research contributions, works, and solutions for almost all the intelligent and smart applications in the smart cities. The smart city concept is a relevant topic for industrials, governments, and citizens. Due to this, the smart city, considered as a multi-domain context, attracts tremendously academics researchers and practitioners who provide efforts in theoretical proofs, approaches, architectures, and in applied researches. The importance of smart cities comes essentially from the significant growth of populations in the near future which conducts to a real need of smart applications that can support this evolution in the future cities. The main scope of this book covers new and original ideas for the next generations of cities using the new technologies. The book involves the application of the data science and AI, IoT technologies and architectures, smart earth and water management, smart education and E-learning systems, smart modeling systems, smart mobility, and renewable energy. It also reports recent research works on big data technologies, image processing and recognition systems, and smart security and privacy.

Debates about the future of urban development in many countries have been increasingly influenced by discussions of smart cities. Despite numerous examples of this "urban labelling" phenomenon, we know surprisingly little about so-called smart cities. This book provides a preliminary critical discussion of some of the more important aspects of smart cities. Its primary focus is on the experience of some designated smart cities, with a view to problematizing a range of elements that supposedly characterize this new urban form. It also questions some of the underlying assumptions and contradictions hidden within the concept.
