To make HIT the main and integrated Research Pole in the fields of Transport, Sustainable Mobility and Tourism in Greece and among the top 10 relevant nodes of technology and expertise in Europe.

Project Title: Support action to contribute to the preparation of future community research programme in user centred Design for ECO-multimodal MOBILity
Duration: 34
months (01/10/2011 - 31/07/2014)

Description & Objectives: DECOMOBIL (Support action to contribute to the preparation of future community research programme in user centred Design for ECO-multimodal MOBILity) is an FP7 European support action project, which started on 1st October 2011 and will end on 30 September 2014.

DECOMOBIL aims to take advantage of the structured research network set up in HUMANIST NoE and followed up in HUMANIST VCE, in order to develop and widely disseminate knowledge in the area of human-centred design of ICT for sustainable transport.

Expected impacts of DECOMOBIL include: widening the market for ICT based mobility and transport services by contributing to the development and the widespread of user-friendly innovative nomadic services, impacting bicycles, public transport and car-sharing use through the understanding of multimodal travelers’ needs; by setting up design recommendations for the next generation of cooperative systems and improving integrated road transport system; by analysing long term effects and potential impact of ITS deployment on clean and safe multimodal mobility and improvements in efficiency and environmental friendliness of mobility and transport in Europe by improving eco-driving behaviour leading to the decrease of vehicles carbon emission for car, bus and trucks and by understanding human behaviour critical parameters linked to the implementation of electric mobility system. For this, activities in DECOMOBIL will provide understanding on acceptability and usability of ICT for the population, and setting up design guidelines and recommendations to avoid misuse and to allow user-friendly interaction with ICT functionalities.

Through organisation of scientific seminars and international conferences, definition of road mapping for future research priorities, reflection on JRIs, and dedicated structured contributions to the eSafety forum in the framework of the iCar Initiative and any relevant committees in this area, objective of the DECOMOBIL project is to contribute to the acceptability and the usability of ICT for cleaner and safer mobility through identification, discussion and dissemination of updated knowledge and know-how in HMI and Human-Centred Design areas towards the ITS community at a European and international level

HIT key role and responsibilities: HIT is Partner in the project.
