Mobility Hubs - Conversion of commercial real estate
The KölnBusiness – the Economic Development Agency of Cologne, working group discusses the implementation of mobility hubs in existing buildings - commercial properties or multi-storey car parks, for example - and discusses the findings of its work with the guests.
Urban planning - forms of mobility in the city of short distances
The best mobility is uncomplicated, without traffic and long distances. Densified, intermixed urban quarters bundle the functions of services of general interest in a radius that promotes active and thus healthy mobility. The city of short distances and the demands of New Urbanism, the advantages of the European city are well known and are currently experiencing a determined renaissance. Which forms of mobility lend themselves to the shortest distances and what still needs to happen for us to break habitual patterns and use healthier and more sustainable means of transport?
Traffic space distribution - Who owns the traffic space?
If we look at the distribution of urban traffic space from a neutral perspective, it quickly becomes clear what logic underlies our mobility in the areas of moving and stationary traffic. Future-oriented mobility models will free up space reserves that we can already think about today for future-promoting redesign and conversion. How can urban space be opened up fairly for the general public? Will there ultimately be enough space for an intensification of the new mobility with simultaneous spatial and ecological upgrading? And how must municipalities act now?
Performance limits - What can the municipality achieve - and what not?
The municipality has crucial tasks in the transport transition. For example, a nationwide expansion of the charging infrastructure can only be guaranteed if municipal processes run smoothly. The allocation of network points for the installation of charging stations will also exponentially increase the (GIS) data query for line and division plans of municipal network operators. How can mobility hubs and smart infrastructure be planned in a time-efficient manner? How can the course be set for expansion? More staff or AI - how can the necessary efficiency be ensured?
The future of public transport - From the suburbs to the city and back: What will commuting look like in the future?
New work and urban migration are giving new importance to suburbs and peripheral settlement areas and their connections to urban centres. Reliable and attractive public mobility services will therefore increasingly help shape potential lifestyles and decisions, and are co-designers of future settlement and spatial development. Can public transport achieve this? Or will private transport remain the inevitable solution in these zones?

Automotive / Sensors - Developments and requirements for sensors for vehicles and infrastructure
As versatile components in smart mobility technologies, sensors play a particularly central role. They are both sensors of relevant stimuli and interfaces between vehicles and infrastructure. These connecting elements are of particular interest when considering urban, i.e. inclusive overlapping and merging of systems. What technologies are coming our way? Where are the areas of application and how can these be expanded? What compatibility requirements will influence urban systems in the future? What are the further areas of application?
V2X - When vehicles talk to each other
V2X, the real-time communication of vehicles, will primarily be used in traffic flow control and accident avoidance, but there are also potential areas of application in the merging of forms of mobility. What demands will sector coupling place on this technology? To what extent and in what way must data be harmonised in order for the systems to communicate? What potential does the technology offer with regard to smart city approaches? How can the field of vision be mapped without gaps? How is accident-free driving ensured? When does real-time communication become "rush hour proof" - and who assumes liability if an error occurs?
Safety - Safety and cleanliness through interior sensing
Safety and cleanliness are usually decisive perceptions for feeling comfortable in vehicles. But how can these factors be ensured in sharing services and autonomous public transport? What demands on interior monitoring arise from the autonomy of vehicles? What possibilities and solutions arise from interior sensing - and how is this compatible with data protection?
Autonomous public transport - Municipal applications of autonomous driving
What conditions must be met and what benefits must municipalities experience in order to implement autonomous driving? Can autonomous driving minishutlles substitute what manned buses currently do? What about data sovereignty? Are there legal restrictions, who has the decision-making power? How can the various interest groups - municipalities, public transport companies, OEMs and tech companies - be brought together?
Performance limits - What can the municipality achieve - and what not?
The municipality has crucial tasks in the transport transition. For example, a nationwide expansion of the charging infrastructure can only be guaranteed if municipal processes run smoothly. The allocation of network points for the installation of charging stations will also exponentially increase the (GIS) data query for line and division plans of municipal network operators.

Mobility as a service (MaaS) - Innovative mobility services
Intermodal through the city or to the next stop with an app. Mobility as a Service - mobility without ownership - offers new possibilities for mobility, both from a private sector perspective and in combination with public transport systems. Which innovative business models are shaping the market? How do these affect urban transport and mobility?
Mobility budget - Corporate mobility management
Mobility budgets are helping companies to shape the transport revolution. Various forms of mobility can be booked digitally for business and private journeys, making the company car increasingly obsolete. However, this poses new challenges for fleet managers and the legislature is challenged in tax matters. How can this new form of corporate mobility management be operationalised? And what possibilities are there in the current range of services?

Last mile - What can cargo bikes, micro depots & co. achieve?
With the continuing boom in online trade, the street scene is also changing: due to a lack of alternatives, vans in urban areas often stop in second rows, in no-parking zones or directly on the carriageway to deliver their goods. This causes traffic jams and delays. What delivery concepts are there for the "last mile"? How can delivery traffic be adapted so that cities no longer groan under it? Whether by micro-hub and subsequent delivery by cargo bike, by intelligent consolidation and one-time delivery to companies, or with completely different approaches: The topic offers a lot to discuss.

Urban ropeways - How can implementation work?
Urban cable cars offer numerous advantages in urban mobility issues: space efficiency, frequency and noise emissions seem unbeatable. Yet time and again, planning projects fail due to resistance from the population. How can these alternative urban transport systems be integrated into the urban-regional transport network and linked with flexible mobility solutions? And how is acceptance increased?
Urban Transport Systems - Maglev and Hyperloop
Especially in the urban-rural connection, alternative transport systems can complement public transport services and offer fast, direct connections from peripheral stations to urban centres. These special systems will entail new approval tests and expert opinions. Will hyperloop, monorail etc. be part of our reality in the future? What speaks in favour of it, what could cause it to fail?
The future of public transport - technological developments and potentials
The demands on public transport are constantly changing. What are the current technical possibilities and what can we expect in the future? How can and will technical innovations change the way we travel in local public transport?
The future of public transport - From the suburbs to the city and back: What will commuting look like in the future?
New work and urban migration are giving new importance to suburbs and peripheral settlement areas and their connections to urban centres.

Role of the city as a pioneer of future electromobility
Electromobility is fundamentally changing urban mobility. For cities and urban transport, the question arises as to what potentials and limits, what opportunities and risks lie in the development of electromobility today and in the future.

What incentives would have to be set and what investments would have to be made today? What adjustments to the infrastructure are necessary and sensible? What is the role of the city in electromobility? What challenges arise and how can these be solved?
Electrification of International Cities, Towns and Municipalities
Electrification is blurring the boundaries between the many sectors and demands new requirements and capabilities.
This presents many cities and municipalities in particular with the challenge of realising these capabilities - in parallel with many other challenges. Therefore, we want to specifically promote the exchange and present some of the best practices of successful cities around the globe in the lectures.
"Inspire you!" - Ready for municipal charging concepts of the future
The title gives room for different interpretations. We give providers of sustainable (infrastructure) concepts related to cities and municipalities the opportunity to convince us of their solutions.
Success factors for municipal charging infrastructure
With the increasing sale of electric vehicles, the demand for public charging stations will also explode. Accordingly, municipalities are facing new challenges that are much more complex than in the past, as many actors and stakeholders have to be involved in modern charging infrastructure concepts. We want to look at these success factors in an expert talk.
Municipal Information Exchange - Electrification Now!
For about two thirds of the municipalities, electromobility has a high priority, more than 80 percent are active in the topic, and another ten percent are planning activities.
The fields of action with the highest activity are the expansion of charging infrastructure and the electrification of the municipal fleet. Without any direct legal obligation, the municipalities are driving electromobility forward here by taking on a pioneering role.
The aim of the Barcamp is to bring municipalities into the current discourse on electromobility, to demonstrate the potential of electromobility with regard to municipal goals and to provide assistance for the practical implementation of municipal electromobility strategies - the "MUNICIPALITY READY" certificate.

"The guiding principles of the car-oriented and function-oriented city have determined the premises of urban planning for many decades. Against the backdrop of global technological developments in digitalisation, artificial intelligence and energy storage, we are now on the threshold of a "mobility-friendly" city that will open up completely new possibilities for us to design a sustainable and liveable city. With polisMOBILITY, we want to accompany this change and be a partner in the dialogue between business, science, politics and urban society."
