Urban mobility and the smartphone

Urban-Mobility-Updated-Artwork.png

L’ouvrage propose une synthèse internationale des transformations induites par la diffusion du smartphone dans les champs du transport et de la mobilité urbaine, à destination de tous ceux qui réfléchissent à la « ville intelligente » et à la « mobilité intelligente ».

Il en clarifie les nouveaux concepts et objets d’étude, rend compte des changements à l’œuvre dans les systèmes de transport (nouveaux services, acteurs et modèles d’affaires) et les pratiques individuelles de mobilité, et discute des implications pour les politiques publiques urbaines et la recherche.

L’ouvrage s’appuie sur une revue de la littérature académique internationale ainsi qu’une analyse de nouveaux services de mobilité dans les pays industrialisés et en développement.


Urban Mobility and the Smartphone : Transportation, Travel Behavior and Public Policy provides a global synthesis of the transformation of urban mobility by the smartphone, clarifying the definitions of new concepts and objects in mobility studies, accounting for the changes in transportation and travel behavior triggered by the spread of the smartphone, and discussing the implications of these changes for policy-making and research. Urban mobility is approached here as a system of actors : the perspectives of individual behavior (including lifestyles), the supply of mobility services (including actors, business models), and public policy-making are considered.

The book is based on an extensive review of the academic literature as well as systematic observation of the development of smartphone-based mobility services around the world. In addition, case studies provide practical illustrations of the ongoing transformation of mobility services influenced by the dissemination of smartphones. The book not only consolidates existing research, but also picks up on weak signals that help researchers and practitioners anticipate future changes in urban mobility systems.
