Smart Move Innovative Urban Mobility Challenge

Compendium of Top Ideas 2021

The Smart Move: Innovative Urban Mobility Challenge is a data-driven innovation challenge focused on urban mobility and transport in Indian cities. The SMART-MOVE Challenge is an initiative under the SMART-SUT project commissioned and funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH supported Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs in organising the challenge. The SMART-MOVE Challenge is driven by National Institute of Urban Affairs, with technical facilitation from Cities Forum.

The Challenge fosters innovative solutions for urban mobility complexities via a challenge model, which culminated with the selection of three winning teams. With the help of a team of mentors and industry experts, the working ideas presented by these three teams will be fine-tuned and developed into implementable solutions, for further use by cities.

Along with innovative solutions, the Smart Move project is a step towards encouraging and enabling the collection and sharing of mobility datasets. The Mobility DataSpace platform was developed to support this purpose, and to act as the launch platform for the Challenge. Effectively, Smart Move, via Mobility DataSpace, can become a repository for innovation in the urban mobility space providing a space for digital solutions
