HARMONY is developing a new generation of spatial and multimodal transport planning tools harmonized in a Model Suite that will enable metropolitan authorities to sustainably lead the transition to a low carbon mobility. Stakeholders are engaged in co-creation labs to understand their needs in terms of integration of traditional and new transport modes, as well as regional spatial and transport planning feeding the development of the HARMONY MS’ functionalities. New mobility technologies and concepts, such as electric autonomous vehicles and drones, are demonstrated and integrated with the traditional transport modes to derive the real-world challenges, social acceptance and policy requirements. The HARMONY model provides an integrated approach necessary for authorities which quantifies the multidimensional impact of various concepts, soft and hard policies on citizens’ quality of life, sustainability, economic growth, while identifying the most appropriate solutions and recommending ways to exploit advances in mobility concepts. The model suite is already linked to six EU metropolitan areas assisting research: Rotterdam, Oxfordshire, Turin, Athens, Trikala and Upper Silesian-Zaglebie Metropolis.
