// DOCKLESS VEHICLES AND SIDEWALKS
Cities are confronted with severe overcrowding of sidewalks by new vehicles, such as scooters, bikes and motorcycles, left on site by users. This phenomenon affects persons with reduced mobility, sight people, elderly, children, etc. for which it represents a risk. The City of Paris together with Engie Siradel wish to develop a mapping of Paris that will enable to understand, predict, and anticipate the issues arising from these new mobilities.
// GIVING THE GREEN LIGHT TO ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION!
In response to the increase of congestion roads and air pollution, more and more Parisians use active and ecological transportation as walking, bike or scooter. Today, more than 4 000 000 daily travels are completed on foot in Paris, i.e. one over two. If travels by bike only represents 4% of all the trips so far, it will reach 15% by 2020. Although urban planning measures facilitate the implementation of new mobility modes, with the creation of bike paths, nothing has been done yet concerning traffic lights. The latter have been based on car traffic only. It causes stressful situations not to say dangerous for the users of those new transports.
Cars are quickly transformed into a common space: the proportion of shared cars fleet and its users should know an annual average growth rate of 20 %. However, firms delivering this service are having a hard time ensuring the hygiene and cleanliness of their vehicles. The experimentation is about implementing sensors in professional cars in Paris to collect data, detect anomalies within the cabin, and recommend a specific cleaning service.
// ZERO WASTE LOGISTICS
Partners owns a lot of public space they grant to shopping facilities, in train station concerning SNCF Gare & Connexions and in the middle of the City concerning Paris Habitat. Those retails receive daily deliveries that engender a lot of bunkering wastes (pallets, cardboards, cling films, etc.). It is a heavy waste source because of overwrap and bad waste recycling. As part of the energy transition law, a strong objective of waste reduction is envisioned for 2025. There will be incentives to favour prevention and reuse solutions in order to reduce by 50% waste by 2025. Circular economy appears to be a concrete solution to meet these objectives and participate in the reduction or overwrapping.
