Design & Innovation

Mobilotoop

By anticipating trends in both product development and mobility, Flanders Inshape and IDE (Innovatie & Design Euregio), in collaboration with Smart Mobility, built innovative prototypes for a new mobility.

Type project personenmobiliteit
Project partners Design Platform Vlaanderen, Flanders InShape, Innovatie & Design Euregio, Infrastructures, Pantopicon, SMART MOBILITY, Cultuurplatform Limburg, Ondersteund door: Agentschap ondernemen, Vlaanderen In Actie, Provincie Limburg
Duration November 13, 2012 - February 20, 2014

Problem

Is there a future for our current system of centralized mass production and mass distribution? Have our daily congestion issues reached their limit and are we at the verge of a new mobility revolution? What exactly the future will bring is hard to predict. But we can try to anticipate possible trends in product development and mobility.

Solution

The Mobilotoop project tried to create a realistic image of what urban mobility of people could look like in the near future.

Project Development

In an ‘Open Design’ method designers granted permission to share their designs with others, who were free to produce and adjust them and share them in turn with others. These freely available designs were used as a means and a purpose for the elaboration of the Mobilotoop project.
Mobilotoop provided the consumer – or rather the prosumer – with the tools to design and produce and actively contribute to a new, intrinsically better urban mobility, especially in their own environment.

Advantages

This project provided an insight into the innovative and practical designs that can improve the mobility and the environment of the future.

Result

Several scenarios were presented to a large group of experts from different disciplines. Eventually a project group built a prototype for vehicles, services and infrastructure. An exhibition was organized where the prototypes were used to give visitors a realistic image of how urban mobility of people would be in the future (2020-2050).

This project was possible thanks to the support of Design Platform Vlaanderen, Agentschap Ondernemen and VIA 2020.
