New Forms of Mobility – how to give the city back to people

Breakfast Networking Event during ITS World Congress

October 13,  9:00 – 10:30

Hammerbrooklyn, Stadtdeich 2-4, 20097 Hamburg

Join Drees & Sommer, Hawa Dawa and Microsoft discussing how to leverage the opportunities of „Smart City“ to bring together efforts from traffic planners and managers, district and real estate development and infrastructure to build a liveable future city. 

Jose Antonio Ondiviela from Microsoft recently claimed that it is time to reevaluate the function of a city. Modern cities were built to accommodate cars. Around 40 percent of the city’s infrastructure focuses on cars, but the truth is that we spend only about 4 percent of our time in a car.

What opportunities of smart city technologies can be leveraged to give the city back to people?
