Anthropolis Chair

The « Anthropolis » chair is constructing a vision of future mobility integrating the major challenges of urban life such as reducing carbon emissions and improving quality of life in cities. Anthropolis develops fundamental methods to design mobility systems and services with a human-centred approach. We explore the following three complementary topics: future mobility and urban life, mobility as a service, and future infrastructures.

Cities are growing in terms of the number of inhabitants and geographical size, posing major challenges regarding livability, ecology and accessibility. Hereby urban mobility plays a major part in having a huge impact on many aspects of everyday life. Current and future technological developments in the areas of mobility technologies and digitalisation present many opportunities for disruptive change of the current mobility system and with it the whole city. These technological advances meet some political will to change the face of tomorrow’s cities towards more citizen-friendly and ecological systems.

The user-centred approach of this Chair addresses some of today’s challenges related to urban mobility by applying user-centred design to various parts of the mobility system and developing and experimenting with innovative solutions based on scenarios and expectations of future technological and societal developments.
