From October to December 2021, ATCT challenged students from Belgium and abroad to reconsider their travel experiences on and to their campus and make them futureproof. Very necessary, according to our own research. More than 100 students worked on this challenge with FACES (For everyone, Autonomous, Connected, Electric, Shared) as a thread through their ideas. 20 teams submitted an idea. From a shortlist of 10 teams, 4 teams were chosen by our team and 1 team by a public vote who could join us for the final event.
Discussion paper: A.R.T. you ready? Towards a society in which autonomous vehicles are deployed sustainably
In September 2021 Autodelen.net, the City of Mechelen, and Mpact launched a discussion paper on how we can potentially roll out autonomous transport in sustainable ways in Flanders.
Caroline, Sophie and Marco give you a glimpse behind the scenes of the name change from Taxistop to Mpact. Months of work, creativity, and some headaches. But in the end: a great success. Dive with us into the world of blue triangles, augmented reality and postal parcels!
Why does Mpact develop shared mobility and holiday solutions? The Sustainable Development Goals are a handy tool for answering this question. Discover which of the 17 goals we help achieve in this blog.
Our youth platform, A Tribe Called Transport, did small research in the last months of 2020 towards students between the ages of 18-25. We summarized the most interesting results in this blog with visuals from Baryon.
“Without sharing, the future with autonomous vehicles will be even worse” – Mpact interviews Cathy Macharis (VUB)
Cathy Macharis is a teaching professor in Sustainable Mobility and Logistics at the University of Brussels (VUB), coordinator of the research group MOBI and a writer. We interviewed her about the impact of Covid-19 on our travel behaviour, the rise of autonomous vehicles and the recipe for a future-proof mobility system.
In these trying corona times, all of us should #stayhome as much as possible. Easier said than done. Did you already binge-watch everything and are you looking for a fresh dose of inspiration? Watch something with a self-driving car in it!
