Persuasive technologies can be applied in the field of mobility to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide health benefits and cost savings, as in the case of encouraging people to use low-energy modes of transportation. To facilitate such behavioral shifts, various persuasive techniques can be investigated and technologies deployed, such as targeted smartphone apps or ubiquitous sensing systems.
The Persuasive Urban Mobility workshop brings together international experts in urban modes of transportation to exchange experiences, discuss limitations, and elaborate on new concepts for encouraging behavior change in mobility. It is an excellent opportunity for participants to submit and present their work to obtain valuable feedback for further research.
