In MobiLe, a qualitative transport model will be developed to support political decisions.
MobiLe will provide a novel decision support tool for transport-related decisions that considers the transport system together with other aspects of a qualitative urban development aiming at sustainability in their systemic interaction.
The MobiLe project, a research cooperation between the city of Norderstedt and the University of Oldenburg, aims to develop a web-based planning tool that enables local politicians to perceive and consider the complexity and interdependencies of the municipal transport system (better) by means of an easy-to-use software. It will also enable local politicians to assess the complex impacts of transportation-related decisions independently and at an early stage.
At the same time, research is investigating how to provide local policymakers and the public with a more comprehensive understanding of the complex interrelationships. Therefore, both local politicians and the public are involved in the development process of MobiLe.
This is associated with the expectation that environmentally compatible, socially equitable and economic mobility will increasingly lead to political decisions that are oriented toward the goal of sustainability.
Funding for MobiLe is to be applied for from the BMBF.
