Athens is one of the largest economic hubs in Southern Europe. Yet, it faces severe congestion challenges due to the rising demand for car trips and a lack of coordination between modes.
⦁ Improve network connectivity and reduce congestion, by pursuing the urban regeneration project “Grand Walk”, which aims to free up 50.000 square meters of urban space to pedestrians and soft mobility.
TANGENT aims to provide strategies to improve network connectivity and operations through a better information system that connects all modes of transportation. In addition, TANGENT focuses on significantly reducing congestion through the balance of demand and supply in real-time scenarios. The efficiency of TANGENT’s strategies is tested on various future mobility scenarios including CAVs (Connected and Automated Vehicles) and ride sharing services.
