DREEM – Designing useR centric E-kickscooters & business models for Enhancing interModality

What we are doing

The use of different and optimally combined transport modes in a seamless way is one of the key challenges to achieve greater sustainability in smart cities transport systems. Each mode of transport has its own advantages and satisfies different mobility purposes and needs. The core of a new electrified microvehicle concept is to combine design and user needs for an easier usage within traditional transportation modes (e.g. public transport) in both urban and suburban areas. The project aims at finalizing and testing a safer and modular electric kick scooter (e-KS) for personal urban and suburban mobility. It presents 2 main innovation levels: on the vehicle side with the development of new features in term of modularity, foldability and improved safety; on the systemic side, the consortium will study and present (a) new business model(s) for a win-win situation for all stakeholders. The consortium relies on the extensive experience of consortium partners, on key learnings of on-going projects, main partner core business, and on the inputs from an Advisory Group within the project that will involve representatives from mobility managers, local and city administrators and standardization and certification bodies. Once users’ needs have been identified and analysed, DREEM aims to test a 3-wheel electric kick scooter in three (3) different pilot cases. Dissemination of key mobility patterns and best practices will be part of the project. While starting with vehicle design and vehicle architecture, the proposal will also explore the feasibility of innovative business models and circular economy.

What we are achieving

ICLEI will assist in producing life cycle analyses of the vehicle. ICLEI will further lead the task on producing a Policy Reccomendation document. It will take the results from the three pilots sites and ICLEI will, using its vast member network, understand what kind of policy should be in place in the EU that allows safe and efficient grow of micromobility solutions, without conflicting with public transport and other active modes of transport. ICLEI also lead the task of communication and dissemination.
