This is a first in France to reconcile improving the fluidity of public transport and traffic in constrained areas. In 2017, in Lyon, the Eiffage Énergie Systèmes teams tested a dynamic bus lane: one of the lanes, lined with red Leds on the ground, was temporarily reserved for buses, detected upstream with appropriate equipment. Motorists were invited to fall back on the left lane.
This tool is aimed at all users of a region (residents, students, employees, businesses, travellers, tourists etc) to encourage them to question its long-term evolution. Both a simulator and a serious game, it invites users to put themselves in the place of the planner and to address the major challenges facing the region by 2030: to solve the housing crisis, ensure a socio-economic balance, reduce the carbon footprint, etc.
Observation of use and practice is made possible by big data collection. The contribution and potential of digital technologies and their ability to change the lines of mobility are questioning researchers in the humanities and social sciences. Netcom magazine is devoting a special issue to it.
DataCités 2 is an exploration carried out by the OuiShare x Chronos Lab which offers a methodology to support communities in the design of urban data services to develop their capacity to act in the field of data, especially in terms of shared data.
To do this, the approach combines:
- Personalised support for each partner region: Republic and Canton of Geneva, City of Antony, Community of Municipalities of the Pompey Basin, Greater Poitiers Urban Community, Community of La Rochelle Urban Area.
The project concerns the deployment of a very large-scale IT and geographical information solution with a level of requirements that matches the mission challenges entrusted to LYDEC.
Since 1 August 1997, LYDEC, a subsidiary of Suez, has been providing delegated management of electricity, drinking water and sanitation services for more than 4 million inhabitants of the Greater Casablanca Region for a period of 30 years.
