Scientific Background

Many of the problems associated with human spatial systems like cities and transportation involve and emerge from social dilemmas. These are complex spatial systems where human beings socially interact and who behaviors affect and are affected by the behavior of the system. Information and Communication and Technologies (ICT) transform the people’s everyday life. We are now connected remotely via smart mobile devices and high-speed Internet to almost anything, anytime and anywhere. ICT is sprouting emerging forms of mobility that did not exist before like autonomous and driverless vehicles, carsharing and ridesharing, as well as flexible forms of public transport. These innovations raise new unanswered questions about the future dynamics of mobility in Smart Cities –  A key rationale for our research lab.
