Sustainability problem: Traffic congestion and pollution
Traffic congestion and the amount of emissions that result from it are an increasingly severe problem in today’s growing megacities.
- BMV proposes a network of bike lanes above street level, called E3 Way for elevated, electric and efficient, to help megacities fight traffic congestion and reduce emissions by making cycling safer and more convenient.
- The network would be exclusive for electric bikes and two-wheelers, and it would have a speed limit of 15.5 mph. It would also have ramps and sluice systems to handle merging.
- Cameras would be used to monitor the flow of traffic with the help of AI, and most of the lanes would have a roof to facilitate its use during rainy days.
- The concept is said to have a modular design, making it suitable to use in any megacity and relatively economical to build.
- Local city government
- Department of transportation
- Cycling advocates
- Environmental department
- Bicycle ride-sharing companies
- Flexibilize the concept to allow for non-electric bikes to use the network.
- Partner with a bike-intense city to generate a localized project that solves a specific problem
- Implement the solution and expand the concept to other cities
Comment: Smart Parking Meters
“The article mentions that the Park Smarter App also facilitates the process of paying for parking with the help of single sign-on and integration with services like Visa Checkout.”
