W8: Mobility Transformation: What does mobility mean in the future?

FAV EG B, Favoritenstr. 9-11, Ground Floor, Room: HBEG16

This workshop is about creation of a multidisciplinary, up-to-date definition and discussion of the concept of mobility in our society. After achieving a common understanding among the workshop participants, a guideline, means, or measures will be cooperatively generated to initiate the building of a research community on this subject in the context of ongoing digitalization processes. Furthermore, future activities will be planned in a coordinated way. Considering different view points coming from different disciplines will enable a multi-layered hence related conceptualizing of the term mobility, which will be discussed in an interactive format. The aim is to create a holistic view to mobility and an informed discussion among participants to tickle emerging challenges, possible solutions, and future developments in the course of digital transformation of our society and the role of digitalization in transforming mobilities.

Activities

the workshop had 8 presentations, covering different aspects of mobility

discussions/topics ranged from:

  • Traditional mobility topics, e. g. transportation (mobility as a service, cargo bike sharing, using nudging to accelerate the transition towards sustainable mobility)
  • mobile interventions making urban data experienceable (michael habiger & gerfried mikusch, vibrowalk - there are pictures of me wearing the vibrowalk, a small black backpack)
  • mobility as an aspect of the design of therapeutic toys (peter fikar and colleagues, also with hands-on experience)
  • how mobility can be experienced by persons with anxiety disorders

Showcasing vibrowalk, it is a device that maps sensor values to vibration by simple walking the streets of the neighbourhood.

Outcomes

we've had interesting discussions about eco-feedback, which came up in several talks, and how it shifts blame/responsibility on individuals, but at the same time may be frustrating for users, as they can see how little they can actually influence the climate/eco crisis, and we discussed, regarding vibrowalk, what data aside from CO2, could be used to give feedback on, and what forms could be used to do so

Next Steps

  • Position papers will be published in an EUSSET journal
  • Future workshop that will build on this work is being planned for an upcoming conference (contact Hilda Tellioglu for more details)
