Advanced Mobility and Emerging Mobility Technology

Merging operational policy expertise with technology to develop safer, future-focused mobility solutions.

Today’s world is full of increasingly diverse transportation options and providers that all seek to provide user efficiency. As such, transportation agencies, local governments, and departments of transportation must:

  • Improve mobility and public safety.
  • Reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
  • Uncover mode sharing opportunities.
  • Offer services to all its communities.
  • Provide effective traveler information.

How we move people and goods has also increasingly become more connected and integrated, blurring the lines between where one travel experience begins and another ends. As a result, the way we develop and implement mobility technology while increasing the operational efficiency of our transportation systems has become a primary focus.

By partnering with our clients, Gannett Fleming applies deep multi-disciplinary and multimodal experience to deliver comprehensive and specialized services that efficiently manage transportation networks.

What Our Clients Value

Safety

Safety is always paramount in the planning, design, and construction of transportation systems. Minimizing risk while maintaining an efficient flow of people and goods requires a diligent and analytical approach, keeping Vision Zero in mind throughout the process. Our talented professionals are trained in current safety procedures and follow all safety standards to provide safe environments for workers and communities to achieve Vision Zero goals.

Efficient Operations

Our clients benefit from our ability to stay at the forefront of innovative solutions that provide efficient operations and reliable travel times. We work relentlessly to deliver excellence on every project, every day, and we leverage technology to do so. For example, our approach leverages:

  • Virtual reality.
  • Augmented reality.
  • 3D modeling.
  • Operations simulation software to help visualize projects and their impacts.

This allows for more informed decision-making that leads to smooth operational functionality.

Resiliency

The severity and frequency of extreme weather events as well as human-made threats such as cyberattacks are increasing, affecting people, businesses, and organizations. Transportation systems need to quickly recover after events of any type for emergency responders and the overall well-being of the community and its economy. Gannett Fleming’s infrastructure solutions with capabilities in planning, design, technology, and sustainability can help implement resilience strategies that keep people and goods moving.

Emerging Mobility Technology

Smart Cities

Throughout the history of Gannett Fleming, our goal has always been to improve the communities we serve. Using a smart city approach helps us delve deeper into community needs and identify new ways to solve traditional problems.

New smart city technology is transforming the way we look at urban mobility and how we connect to city infrastructure. To provide citizens with more and better-informed transportation choices, we now can combine a myriad of:

  • Safety and efficiency policies.
  • Partnerships.
  • Sensors.
  • Cameras.
  • Media channels.

Connecting these vast and divergent systems lies with planners and designers from Gannett Fleming as they look at safety and mobility for more efficient interconnected communities.

Connected & Automated Vehicles/Highway Automation

The next generation of transportation offered by automated and connected vehicles is well underway. We are working side-by-side with industry leaders and clients to help them define their future. Our diverse team of professionals helps clients evaluate the possibilities from all angles and determine a path forward that is feasible, probable, and practical.

Electric Mobility

The world is converging on the demand for clean and sustainable infrastructure solutions with electric mobility technology that will significantly alter the transportation industry. In response to the shift to electric mobility, Gannett Fleming leads the way by helping public and private organizations plan, develop, and implement creative and reliable electric mobility solutions. No matter where you may be in the process of adoption – our approach provides a path forward for all.

Mobility on Demand

Mobility on demand is a multimodal and demand-responsive service offering pedestrians, commuters, and passengers personalized travel plans through digital platforms, providing real-time information, payment, and transaction processing. Gannett Fleming’s has an extensive portfolio of projects, such as advanced tolling and pricing systems. This enables us to employ mobility on demand to service providers for more timely and convenient ways for commuters and riders of all types to arrive at their destination.
