A new transportation model using available technology - mobility as a 'product'
Aug 8, 2013
Please see the proposal: https://www.climatecolab.org/web/guest/plans/-/plans/contestId/7/planId/1303903 At any given time, there is a stream of empty seats in many different modes of transportation passing us by. We _could_ automatically connect several of these streams in real-time to easily get from one place to another using secure, anonymous mobile information. The main point is to allow us to use information to de-couple quality of life from energy consumption, by using mobile devices to securely, anonymously, easily, and automatically access mobility resources. Yes, this is difficult, and yes, we have to be very careful. However, trends in automobile driving and smart mobile applications are already heading this direction. This addresses issues discussed here, among others. http://thedianerehmshow.org/shows/2013-08-07/changing-suburbs http://confrontingsuburbanpoverty.org/the-book/first-chapter/ sincerely, Galen
