The SmartHubs projects examines mobility hubs, dedicated on-street locations where citizens can choose from different shared and sustainable mobility options. The main objective is to assess if a co-designed user-centric development can enable mobility hubs to act as a game changer towards sustainable urban mobility and accessibility. SmartHubs will examine, develop and apply research methods and tools in four SmartHubs Living Labs in Belgium (Brussels), the Netherlands (Rotterdam-the Hague), Germany (Munich) and Austria (Vienna and Seestadt aspern). SmartHubs will develop and apply novel participatory and impact assessment tools (i) an open accessibility tool involving inputs from individual citizens to examine the local accessibility impacts of mobility hubs, (ii) an accessibility network analysis and resilience tool to examine the impacts of mobility hubs on transport network resilience, (iii) a multi-actor multi-criteria analysis method is used and extended to involve individual citizens and (iv) 3D visualization, augmented reality and gaming will be used to facilitate co-creation processes of mobility hub design. Finally, SmartHubs will conduct rigorous research on a broad range of mobility, accessibility, vulnerability, resilience and societal impacts of mobility hubs (including environmental, equity, gender, and transport poverty impacts) which go beyond the current state of the art.
