One of the central factors in promoting the use of micromobility is offering properly designed physical and digital infrastructures that actively support users and allow positive use experiences.
The project MIDIS aims to contribute to more sustainable means of transport by using bicycles, electric scooters, and other smaller vehicles under the micro-mobility category. The main contribution includes facilitating cooperation among micromobility stakeholders through e.g. proposing and testing data-sharing methods, identifying perpetual barriers to the use of micromobility, generating direct value for citizens, improving the safety of use, and fostering municipalities' readiness to respond to the changes in the micromobility sector.
The project consists of three main research work packages and one coordinating work package to explore the different needs of the municipalities, the operators, and the users. In the first work package, an overall understanding of data needs from different stakeholders will be mapped and discussed in workshops. For work package two, the data needs of the users will be addressed, and the project will run an experiment together with the Trollhättan municipality. Work package three is about policy and standard that enables easier use and regulation for the municipalities.
