Introduction to Sustainable Transports

This book provides a perspective on the initiatives and innovation projects in the field of sustainable transportation. It addresses the technological, economic, and political aspects of vehicles, infrastructure, and rules of operation. A systemic approach is taken which includes many factors and complex interactions: movement of goods and people at all levels from local to global and in all transport modes, concerns about energy and the environment, safety, service quality, intelligence, and the lifecycle of the system. The transport system must be organized in such a way that solutions which optimize mobility in the context of sustainable development can be reached.
