Why Study Smart Mobility?

Smart mobility is one of the most dynamic and exciting challenges of the future. To remake cities by democratizing transit, leaders and innovators must have a comprehensive understanding of the three pillars of modern smart mobility – technologies, technicalities, policies – and how they interact with complex, real-world systems. This course, at the top-ranked MIT School of Architecture and Planning, is a fast-track to foundational frameworks and field expertise for business leaders and entrepreneurs alike.

Large-scale transit projects rely on a sophisticated balance of sensor-based hardware and AI-enabled software in outdoor environments that constantly change. The deep science driving these innovations is technical and contingent upon complex energy systems, pricing models, surface logistics, and human behaviors. Throughout a smart mobility project lies the specter of heavy regulations and overlapping bureaucracies.

In this course, learners will simplify the equation by analyzing the successes and challenges of global smart mobility initiatives. By developing smart mobility leadership principles, learners will also create a proposal for a sustainable, integrated urban transit system that threads the smart mobility needle. The challenge is immense, but the payoff is massive: when we make it easier for kids to get to school, parents to get to work, and residents to explore their cities, we transform lives.

“We’re at the dawn of the most profound changes in transportation: an unprecedented combination of new technologies, such as autonomy, electrification, computation and AI, and new objectives, including decarbonization, public health, economic vibrancy, data security and privacy, and social justice.”



Prof. Jinhua Zhao, Director, MIT Smart Mobility Initiative
