Synopsis

Urban mobility is changing quickly due to the convergence of key technologies and social altitudes. The four paradigms - “Autonomous, Connected, Electric and Shared” - are set to transform the industry and the built environment globally. Hong Kong has also set ambitious goals on Smart City with a strong focus on smart mobility. This seminar will provide participants with an overview of the fast-moving trends that could shape urban mobility and outline their impacts on Hong Kong. It will discuss the considerations on preparing Hong Kong for a new era of user-focused mobility in response to the emerging trends.  It will also share case studies of recent design and deployments in intelligent mobility (IM) solutions.


Speakers

Carmen CHU

Director (Transport), Arup

Carmen is a director of Transport in Arup. She has over 20 years of experience in a wide spectrum of transportation studies and land use planning projects involving transportation planning, highway and railway engineering and sustainable transport strategies.

Her engineering and planning backgrounds blend in well, enabling her to appreciate prevailing planning constraints or opportunities, and to apply relevant town planning principles to transport system planning and/or traffic engineering design work.

Carmen serves as the Intelligent Mobility Leader in Hong Kong for Arup’s East Asia Region. At present, Carmen is leading several high profile ITS related projects in Hong Kong for major infrastructure projects including a free-flow tolling system and a major tunnel connecting outer areas to urban Kowloon. Both are landmark projects, with the first free-flow tolling project in Hong Kong being slated for implementation throughout the territory on all major bridges and tunnels.
