Research


The FM IRG, in partnership with a diverse mix of an outstanding group of Singaporean colleagues and institutionspartners, draws together an interdisciplinary group with the goal of leading urban mobility innovations well into the 21st Century. Our research efforts focus on the three inter-related research areas following research themes, as depicted in the image below:DEVICES & SYSTEMSMobility SensingFutureMobilitySensingLIVESingapore!2.0New Tools&Techniques>Safe, Secure&AutonomousTechnologiesof AutonomyDriverlessCityShared CityMobilityon DemandMobilityManagementReal-Time Mobility Estimation,Prediction & ControlDynaMIT2.0Data-DrivenTrafficModelingNext-GenerationTrafficControlCyber-PhysicalSecurity/Resilience MODELING, SIMULATION & ASSESSMENT CONTROL, OPTIMIZATION & PLANNINGSimMobilitySimMobilityPaxSimMobilityFreight

Develop, in and beyond Singapore, new paradigms for the planning, design and operation of future urban mobility systems.


Innovative urban mobility systems, aimed at both passengers and freight, will materially enhance sustainability and societal well-being on a global scale. The FM IRG will:


  • harness and enhance promising networked computing and control (NCC) technology-enabled innovations that may contribute to improved future urban mobility;
  • develop decision models that can be applied to support various novel mobility concepts, such as the pervasive use of real-time information, mobility-on-demand services and green logistics;
  • investigate the potential and impacts of these innovations and decision models; and
  • assess their implications for urban development and urban planning organisations and institutions.

Emphasis will be placed on innovations in public transport, but private automobile, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic will also be addressed. The IRG will adopt approaches that integrate information on human and commercial activities, land use, transportation, environmental impacts, and energy use.
