Accidents, congestion and pollution are some of the problems generated from the massive use of private cars.
In some cases, private cars are the only alternative, in some others the use of private cars is the result of a lack of transport services integration, collaboration among transport providers and integrated information.
ICARUS wants to go past these problems making a use of innovative technologies to adapt smart mobility in a digital world.
Moreover, it aims to activate a behavioral change in mobility, using the Mobility as a Service, a concept that moves passenger needs from the transport means to the mobility service.
