This Smart Cities Transportation course is the leading online training, already taken by thousands of professionals worldwide, has become the reference in nanotechnology education and certification in the industry.
In this course we refer to transportation as any and every system that moves people around a city. Think of a city’s streets, vehicles, railways, subways, buses, bicycles, streetcars, ferries and so on. All play an essential role in the hustle and bustle of today’s cities in commuting to work, running errands, attending classes, enjoying a night out, shipping and receiving products, delivering pizzas. We rely on the vast web of transportation networks in our cities. We trust that they will get us where we need to be in an efficient, safe manner for a reasonable price.
But that’s not always the case. Transportation networks in cities around the world struggle with serious problems, like congestion. A recent study calculated that traffic congestion in 2019 wasted $121 billion in the United States alone in time, fuel and money. Another study predicts that emissions from vehicles idling in traffic jams will result in 1,600 premature deaths and $13 billion in “total social costs” in the U.S. by 2025.
Fortunately, there are a lot of ways cities can fix traffic congestion by deploying ICT, as you’ll read about in the sections that follow.
The promise of smart transportation and the reality of city congestion means that this market subsector is growing rapidly. A 2019 study by MarketsAndMarkets found that global spending on smart transportation initiatives will quadruple to more than $102 billion in 2025 from almost $27 billion in 2020.
As you explore this course you’ll discover there are four targets that cities need to achieve to put smart transportation into high gear. We’ll also briefly discuss how the universal targets apply to transportation. But first, a quick look at transportation dependencies and then we’ll highlight the incredible benefits in livability, workability and sustainability that smart transportation networks provide.
