Projects presented in the recent edition of the ILP-FAPESP Science and Innovation Cycle discuss innovations for urban mobility such as analyzing potential cycling routes, safety and comfort for pedestrians and other research.
The project began in February 2018 and was developed by a partnership between InterSCity and Guiaderodas. More than a dozen of databases was analyzed to identify which are the regions with the best accessibility conditions according to some criteria related to urban mobility. The results were in Free Wheels portal, besides the interactive map with scores of each region.
