Streetmoves for the Intelligent City


In the project, alternative urban scenarios for an inner-city neighborhood in Stuttgart will be presented using performative, participatory tools. These are based on a different mobility behavior and resulting changes for the urban space. The scenarios will be evaluated comparatively with regard to their experienceability. The background to this study is the increasing volume of traffic in the Stuttgart metropolitan region. The high proportion of motorized individual traffic (MIV) is associated with negative effects on the quality of urban space and quality of life.

Mapping des Quartiers / Mapping of the neighborhood

Scientific approach

Research questions:

  • What potentials arise from a different mobility behavior for the improvement of urban space and quality of life in the neighborhood?
  • How can possible collective and individual added values of these scenarios be experienced?
  • How do implementation and effects of the mobility shift as large-scale transformation process, happen in existing neighborhoods?

Scientific approach and methods

  • Conception of future scenarios in urban planning for the use of potentials of a MIV-reduction in inner city quarters
  • Spatial analysis and site scouting for experimental interventions
  • Practical, programmatic-spatia, virtual-reality and augmented reality application-based and programmatic-spatial real experiments in public spaces
  • Co-productive planning and implementation of the real-world experiments with the participation of active citizens who experience the future scenarios via the AR application and the VR application
  • Identification of inhibiting and promoting factors for the strengthening of sustainable mobility behavior

Targeted results

The overall research goal is to make it possible for individuals to experience the added value of a car-free (or car-traffic-reduced) city and to increase their willingness to embrace a user-driven mobility shift.
