The goals of the CyberMove project are to improve the attractiveness and quality of life in Anyville by reducing the use and the parking needs of traditional cars. This will be achieved by new transportation systems based on cybercars as a complement to public mass transportation. Cybercars offer a cleaner and safer transportation mode available to everyone including people who cannot (or should not) drive for a level of service better than with private cars (door to door, individual, on-demand transportation).
CyberMove's aim is to create a new transportation option for city authorities to move towards sustainability and increase the attractiveness of city centres.
CyberMove is a 3 year project, launched on December 1, 2001. It starts with an analysis of user needs, a definition of operating scenarios and a pre-design phase. The first planned milestone is the selection of sites in the 12 cities which have officially expressed their interests. The second milestone consists of guidelines for safety design in those selected cities. A design review is the last milestone before the Mid Term Assessment of the project, which will clarify demonstration plan and budget. Demonstrations are expected during the project in at least 3 European sites.
Evaluations of the systems performance will include energy, environment, safety and economic impacts. The dissemination program will focus on the diffusion of the knowledge gained in these experiments to all cities, public acceptance and on exploitation plans for implementation of the new transportation systems.
