Piemonte: A successful Smart Mobility Ecosystem

My list

Mobility in Piemonte has a very long tradition. Large companies and supply chains in the automotive and railway sectors have emerged in this area since early 1900.

The region is very competitive in smart mobility and autonomous and connected driving, thanks to a great expertise in high innovative sectors: companies are indeed developing more and more distinctive technologies and solutions in the area of sharing mobility, connectivity, artificial intelligence, Big Data and Internet of Things.

Piemonte is a successful smart mobility ecosystem, thanks to the presence of cutting-edge universities and technology centres (Politecnico di Torino, University of Turin), competence centres, CIM 4.0 on automotive manufacturing, centres of excellence (mechatronics and ICT), and digital innovation hubs.

All the skills to translate an idea into a product, be it a vehicle, a function or a service, exist on the ground.

Some of the mobility fields in which Piemonte can offer innovative solutions are:

  • Traffic control systems: thanks to 5T, the in-house company for the City of Torino, Piemonte Region and Città Metropolitana di Torino, the area applies very advanced traffic control solutions that can be applied in other cities, with proven benefits in terms of efficiency and reduced emissions. The current focus is on Mobility as a Service and Smart Road issues

  • Advanced vehicles prototypes: in addition to multinational vehicle manufacturers, the area is home to many small and medium-sized enterprises capable of producing small-volume vehicles

  • Testing of self-driving vehicles: companies having met a number of conditions to ensure safety are authorized to test self-driving vehicles in real traffic conditions. A road network of about 35 Km is equipped with a state-of-the-art infrastructure (5G connectivity, road sensors, V2X communication systems) to allow the testing of innovative advanced scenarios of autonomous driving systems, up to level 5 of automation.
