dc.description.abstract<p>South-East Asia is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, with a total population of more than 600 million. In 2019, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the subregion was more than US$3 trillion, representing 6.25 per cent of global GDP. The rate of urbanization in South-East Asia reached 49 per cent in 2018 and is projected to reach 56 per cent in 2030. Such rapid urbanization has brought heavy traffic congestion, serious safety issues and growing urban inequality. Further, the transport sector in South-East Asia consumes more than 25 per cent of the country&rsquo;s total energy, which is directly related to an increase in CO2 emissions. As a result, there have been various notable attempts to address such concerns and provide cost-effective mobility options in South-East Asia through the adoption of smart transport systems. An example of this approach is the &ldquo;ASEAN Smart Cities Network&rdquo;, where smart mobility is an intrinsic element in the smart cities concept.</p> <p>To further the scope of smart transport systems, this report details the concept of &ldquo;smart mobility&rdquo; which can be interpreted as transport systems and services that use advanced information and communications technology which increase users&rsquo; convenience in their trips. Taking into consideration such characteristics and the United Nation&rsquo;s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, smart mobility is inclusively defined herein as: &ldquo;The integrated user-oriented transport systems and services that can make travelling safer, smarter and greener using innovative technologies.&rdquo; The concept differs from &ldquo;transport&rdquo;, which relates to the movement of people and goods utilizing a vehicle, whereas &ldquo;mobility&rdquo; is the ability to move freely and easily. Smart mobility, under the umbrella of the wider notion of smart transport systems, is a result of the evolution of mobility delivered as an output from the fourth industrial revolution through the advent of smart devices.</p> <p>The study was conducted as part of the project titled Increasing the Use of Smart Mobility Approaches to Improve Traffic Conditions in Urban Areas of the South-East Asia Subregion, which is funded by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, Republic of Korea.</p> <iframe width="660" height="380" src="https://www.unescap.org/sites/default/d8files/2022-01/TD-Smart-Mobility-Video-Low%20%282%29.mp4" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>
