The contribution of Urban Information Systems (UIS) to sustainable mobility

Urban planning is a complex task that requires a variety of urban information. The need for assistance in the execution of tasks related to urban planning has led to the development of Urban Information Systems (UIS), which in many cases are also digital and, therefore, called Digital Urban Information Terminals (DUIT).

For sustainable mobility and successful urban planning, it is important to encourage people to exchange their private cars for more sustainable means of transport. But it is not enough to encourage the use of bicycles or public transport. It is necessary to create the conditions for this transition to happen.

This way, Urban Information Terminals (UIT) centralize and measure distinct information extracted from urban data. In turn, this information can help the population to have knowledge of relevant communications and facilitate decision-making.

As cities develop and grow, public transportation options evolve and citizens and tourists may face some difficulties when moving from one point to another. However, with PARTTEAM & OEMKIOSKS solutions, this is no longer a problem. With Urban Information Systems (UIS), information can reach citizens more quickly and effectively in digital billboards or self-service kiosks.

Taking into account that cities are socio-economic epicenters with a great human activity, technological conditions for mobility monitoring need to be created.

Faced with the development of Smart Cities, an inevitable paradigm for progress, inseparable from the modernization of urban mobility, the need to invest in technology to ensure a better tomorrow appears.

The construction of new paradigms of urban development, focusing on the model of Smart Cities, marks a strategic intervention in several areas related to mobility, environment, energy, entrepreneurship, creativity and social innovation.
