SETTING THE PACE OF CHANGE Two years ago, following the adoption of the New Urban Agenda, which sets out global standards for sustainable urban development, the FIA decided it must take a proactive stance on the future definition of what it means to be mobile in our cities, and how cleaner, more efficient and safer mobility systems can improve the lives and security of millions of people the world over. Using the platform of the city-based, future-focused ABB FIA Formula E Championship to drive discussion around these topics and to promote the development of innovative mobility solutions, the FIA last year created the FIA Smart Cities initiative. After a successful first series of events, the 2018 programme saw the initiative gain increased momentum through events in Santiago de Chile, Rome and finally in Zurich. At all three FIA Smart Cities Forums an impressive array of mobility experts, city planners, metropolitan authorities, technology specialists, entrepreneurs, high-level political leaders and policy-makers gathered to define solutions to a varied range of pressing urban mobility issues. These included the goal of widespread implementation of vehicle emission and fuel efficiency standards, the development of high-tech traffic management solutions, planning for future mobility in historic environments, the value of â€˜big dataâ€™ in defining evidence-based transport policy, and the role of new motor sport technology in advancing sustainable development â€” an especially relevant topic given the platform for the Forums. FIA Smart Cities also focused on the here and now, organising Global Start-Up Contests for innovative high-tech companies that have the possibility of revolutionising an aspect of mobility, and also the FIA Smart Cities Award, in which each event city of the Formula E calendar was invited to submit a programme designed to address specific mobility issues in its municipality. By publicising and supporting new technology and transformative public programmes, the FIA Smart Cities initiative helps to widen the knowledge base of cities worldwide and to spread best practice and innovation. FIA Smart Cities has grown impressively in the two years of its existence and we are seeing great engagement with its ideals, not just among the transportation stakeholders but also in the worlds of health and safety, business, technology, and social and corporate responsibility. I look forward to an even more productive year ahead, a year in which we continue to move urban mobility forward, to define new solutions, encourage exciting new ventures, and in which we continue to make a positive contribution towards reaching the goals set by the New Urban Agenda adopted during the UN Habitat III Conference in Quito. With best wishes,
Jean Todt FIA President 3
THE FIA SMART CITIES INITIATIVE AT A GLANCE Addressing the Urban Agenda With the world’s urban population set to nearly double in the next three decades, and with populations, economic activity and social and cultural life increasingly concentrated in densely populated areas, building liveable, workable and navigable cities is becoming a primary developmental concern. Launched in 2017, the FIA Smart Cities initiative aims to promote discussion and evolve solutions around the development of technologically advanced urban mobility systems that address those concerns and which promote safety, sustainability and community in the cities of the future. Led by the FIA and supported by the ABB FIA Formula E Championships, ABB, ENEL, Julius Bär, JCDecaux, and Michelin, FIA Smart Cities encourages knowledge generation and information exchange in the field of sustainable urban mobility. Formula E – itself a key driver in the development of electric vehicles – provides FIA Smart Cities with a platform for
discussion around sustainable motoring and innovations relating to urban transport, clean technologies, and managing the growing demands on public services. Uniting stakeholders and experts from business and government, the FIA Smart Cities Forums link both public and private sectors to foster debate and innovative thinking that will lead to sustainable urban growth in the years to come. In order to help fast-track this sustainable development, the initiative also features two other pillars. The FIA Smart Cities Award invites host cities to share a project that has contributed to the development of sustainable mobility through innovative policies and/or service, while the FIA Smart Cities Global Start-Up Contest seeks to identify and invest in innovative technology companies focused on technologies that advance safe and sustainable mobility solutions in cities.

... DRIVING CHANGE IN 3 KEY AREAS OF MOBILITY > Efficient data collection and use > Shared clean mobility solutions > Diversification of transport solutions
THE FIA SMART CITIES AWARD Helping to Keep Cities Moving Increasingly urban, increasingly connected, ever more mobile – as the growth of cities expands exponentially, planners are becoming more and more creative, inventive and innovative in the solutions they bring to the issue of safe, efficient, intelligent and integrated mobility. All too often, however, the positive results achieved by individual programmes remain a success story known only to those at work in the city itself. However, in a bid to bring the very best mobility solutions to light on a more global stage and to spread knowledge, in 2017 the FIA developed the FIA Smart Cities Award to recognise innovative, high-tech, ‘smart’ solutions to urban mobility problems. The Award invites authorities from cities hosting rounds of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship to detail the unique mobility challenges they face and to put forward one policy that represents an innovative solution to their city’s transporation problems, from improved organisation and greater efficiency, and from investment in public transport infrastructure to more integrated systems that keep traffic moving. The initiatives, which must be deemed capable of bringing about qualitative change, are assessed by a panel of experts, with a single innnovative programme being chosen for overall recognition. .

SANTIAGO DE CHILE CLEAN MOBILITY FOR A STRONG ECONOMY 2 FEBRUARY 2018
Santiago has made a real shift towards more sustainable urban development. Our goal is to make mobility systems cleaner, more innovative and more inclusive. Claudio Orrego, Governor of the Metropolitan Region of Santiago
TOWARDS CLEAN AND PROSPEROUS URBANISATION As migration towards cities continues and urban centres increasingly become the engines that drive economic success, understanding the role that mobility plays in keeping that engine moving is one of the major challenges facing cities around the world. As such, February 2018’s FIA Smart Cities Forum in the bustling city of Santiago de Chile centred on the theme of clean mobility for a strong economy. An early pioneer of Smart Cities principles, the Chilean capital was a fitting location for the launch of the FIA Smart Cities Season 2. Rapid growth in both population and urban density in the latter decades of the 20th century led to a severe decline in air quality, and by the 1990s Santiago had begun to implement user-focused policies and expanded its public transport infrastructure with the measurable improvement in the environment.
hubs and moves towards connecting users to transit databases through a range of smartphone apps. The Santiago Forum explored a variety of topics, including an opening presentation on the Decarbonisation of Transport in which Secretary General of the International Transport Forum Dr Young Tae Kim underlined the power of private partnerships saying: “The private sector is advancing the use of technological innovation such as the performance of batteries for electric mobility. At the same time the government is in a good position to nurture the marked with the electrification of its own vehicle fleets.” Acting Manager of the Connect4Climate Programme Max T. Edkins also shared his vision on the mobilisation of actors around the climate-smart technologies.
The Forum began with remarks on the subject of future urban mobility systems in Latin America from dignitaries such as FIA President Jean Todt, Chief Mayor of Santiago de Chile Claudio Orrego, Mayor of Seville Juan Espadas Cejas, President of the Automóvil Club de Chile Alejandro Quintana Hurtado, and CEO of Formula E Holdings Alejandro Agag.
The topic was discussed further in a panel discussion focused on unlocking the benefits of clean transport that featured CEO of the New Cities Foundation John Rossant, Climate Change Coordinator at UNEP Gustavo Manez, Laura Ballesteros, Undersecretary for Mobility of Mexico City at the time, Director of the Centro Mario Molina Gianni López Ramirez, and General Manager of Enel Chile Nicola Cotugno.
In particular, Governor Orrego highlighted the steps taken in Santiago, pointing to the city’s implementation of an e-mobility strategy as evidence of progress. The strategy focuses on the integration of electric power into the public transportation system, the activation of multimodal transport
Also on the agenda at the Forum was the opportunity presented by the new sharing economy, with ride-sharing services, drone deliveries, and city bike schemes all pointed to as disruptor solutions currently helping to ease traffic management issues.
FIA Smart Cities offers a platform for an inclusive and open discussion about all types of mobility issues between experts from different sectors and various backgrounds: from multilateral organisations to city leaders and young entrepreneurs.Â Jean Todt, FIA President
Innovations are a vehicle to promote the Sustainability Revolution and a means to advance climate-smart technologies, including electric mobility and lowâ€‘carbon infrastructure. Max T. Edkins, Acting Manager of the Connect4Climate Programme

ROME INNOVATION IN THE ETERNAL CITY 13-14 APRIL 2018
We are designing the town of the future, favouring interconnected mobility with low environmental impact works. Rome must be competitive and is ready to take up the challenge. The aim is to place the citizens and their needs right at the centre of the project. Virginia Raggi, Mayor of Rome
CITY OF ETERNAL DEVELOPMENT Rome is a city both modern and ancient, a conurbation home to countless historic monuments but also almost 3 million residents. The ever-expanding eternal city, which has one of the highest levels of motorisation in Europe, thus faces significant transportation challenges, which the city hopes to manage through the recent launch of a 10-year Sustainable Mobility Plan aimed at improving road performance management through congestion charging, urban planning, and infrastructure assessment. The Italian capital’s goal is efficient, inclusive, and environmentally friendly mobility for all, and by joining the FIA Smart Cities initiative, the eternal city has tapped into a global network of experts in digitalisation, connectivity, and clean energy solutions. In April, Rome played host to the 5th FIA Smart Cities Forum. The event gave participants the opportunity to address a variety of topics, including the scope of policies and actions under the Sustainable Mobility Urban Plan, state-of-the-art smart urban mobility innovations related to infrastructure and traffic management, the role of new motor sport technologies in advancing sustainable urban development, and the key importance of partnership and cooperation to allow the deployment of large-scale innovative solutions. Concrete examples of these important topics were given by two keynote speakers Director of the MIT Senseable City
Lab Carlo Ratti and Executive Director of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation Olivier Wenden who talked about how innovation can be a driver of intelligent and sustainable mobility infrastructure. Panel discussions ranged from innovations and tools to the importance of policy and advocacy in urban transformation, with speakers coming from the worlds of local and national government, global business, and the world of motor sport. Included in the list of prominent panellists were FIA President Jean Todt, Mayor of Rome Virginia Raggi, President of the Automobile Club d’Italia and FIA Vice-President for Sport Angelo Sticchi Damiani, Mayor of Catania and Chairman of National Council ANCI Enzo Bianco, CEO of Formula E Holdings Alejandro Agag, President of ARISF and Chairman of the Centre of Excellence for Energy and Environment (SAFE) Raffaele Chiulli, and Lisbon Deputy Mayor for Mobility Miguel Caspar. All of whom took part in discussions on innovation in urban mobility. They proposed solutions to challenges including congestion, pollution, lack of mobility choices and poor safety measures. Among the mitigating measures suggested were changing user habits through the implementation of evidence-based regulations and increased knowledge-sharing among stakeholders.
Motorists are aware that their cityâ€™s quality of life strongly depends on the quality of its mobility services. I firmly believe that their willingness to change their habits should be encouraged with appropriate programmes, continuous and clearly structured information, connectivity services and real time info-mobility.Â Angelo Sticchi Damiani, ACI President and FIA Vice-President for Sport
Cities have a key role in the decarbonisation of mobility, but we will only succeed if we create a strong ecosystem of partners with common values and willing to lead the change by sharing data and process within smart cities.Â Miguel Gaspar, Deputy Mayor for Mobility City of Lisbon

Scuter is based on a vehicle that is very innovative. We designed it thinking about the people. It didn’t have to be beautiful, trendy, it had to be solid and easy to drive. Gabriele Carbucicchio, Co-founder & CEO of Scuter
DEFINING THE PATH TO SUSTAINABILITY In addition to a fascinating programme of scheduled presentations and debates, Rome’s FIA Smart Cities event also featured an extra highlight following the city’s first Formula E race, in the shape of a final high-level discussion on the importance of sustainable mobility featuring FIA President Jean Todt, CEO of Formula E Holdings Alejandro Agag, and HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco. Speaking about the impact of climate change on cities, Prince Albert reminded the audience of the main goals of his Foundation, which in 2006 was created to advance environmental protection and promote sustainable development. The discussion later turned to the crucial issue of road safety in cities, where levels of interaction between vehicles and vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists are high. “Our cities are not only centres of economic growth and integration, they are also places where people should be able to move in a safe, efficient and sustainable manner,” said FIA President Jean Todt. “By working hand-in-hand with ambitious political leaders and local communities, we can create a new reality in which every road user feels safe and comfortable in every corner of constantly growing urban areas.”
ZURICH SMART DATA TO SHAPE THE CITIES OF TOMORROW 9 JUNE 2018
The FIA Smart Cities Forum is the perfect complement for the Formula E weekend. Pollution in cities â€” which is becoming a dramatic problem â€” traffic, crashes, all this can be solved by applying new technologies, by having Smart Cities. So, the future of this Forum is only to become more and more relevant. Alejandro Agag, CEO of Formula E Holdings
THE URBANISATION OF INFORMATION As Formula E brought circuit racing back to Switzerland for the first time in more than 64 years, the city of Zurich not only embraced the future of motor sport but also mobility as it hosted the final FIA Smart Cities Forum of Season 2. And with data and data management central to both motor sport and to the wider world of transport planning and urban development and transport planning, the Zurich edition of the Forum was based around the theme of ‘Smart Data to Share the Cities of Tomorrow’. The Forum was opened by Alejandro Agag, CEO of Formula E Holdings and the Touring Club Suisse President Peter Goetschi who spoke passionately about the application of technology in sustainable mobility and the importance of changing public behaviour. “Raising awareness and demonstrating the benefits of new mobility solutions must be a shared goal for cities,” he said. The Zurich Forum addressed a variety of topics including: data collection, optimisation and management with experiences from Europe and abroad; best practices of evidence-based policy-making in transport; data-sharing: the art of public-private collaboration; and smart data for scaling up innovative mobility solutions. The smart data theme featured in a variety of presentations
and discussions, with two keynote speakers, Resident Fellow of the Urban and Regional Policy Program of the German Marshall Fund David Zipper and Polis Secretary General Karen Vancluysen, examining efficient policy-making, the optimisation of data flows to enhance public-private cooperation, and the use of data in pursuit of efficient policy-making. In addition, the event featured a special presentation on the United Nations’ work on sustainable innovation by Nathan Borgford-Parnell, Science Affairs Officer at the Climate and Clean Air Coalition of the United Nations Environment Programme. The event’s panel discussion saw experts from the world of big data explore solutions for unlocking the digital future of Smart Cities, with the panellists concluding that real-time data collected by private mobility operators represent a unique tool that public authorities should have access to in order to define demand-driven mobility policies. The panel also looked at the changing landscape of data collection and management, with Philippe Crist from the ITF saying: “There is a shift from the public sector, that used to have a lot of data, to the private sector, that now generates a lot of data. How to create a trusted exchange of information between the public and the private sectors is going to be a key challenge for governments around the world.”
Raising awareness and demonstrating the benefits of new mobility solutions must be a shared goal for cities and key mobility stakeholders.Â Peter Goetschi, President of the Touring Club Suisse
Data architecture should be accurately designed and enforced to ensure that new mobility services meet user demand.Â David Zipper, Resident Fellow of the Urban and Regional Policy Program of the German Marshall Fund
WINNER IN ZURICH: PARQUERY The final FIA Smart Cities Global Start-Up Contest winner of the season was presented to tech-based parking monitoring firm Parquery.
PROJECT Parquery is a scalable real-time smart parking solution aimed at helping monitor the use and availability of parking spaces using CCTV cameras and computer vision software.
IMPACT ON SMART CITIES Parquery can be used by city administrations to increase parking efficiency, with a single camera able to simultaneously monitor up to 300 parking spaces. Using the Internet of Things, Parquery monitors real-time use of parking spots, providing road users with up-to-date information on parking availability.
CONTEXT The firm has partners on three continents, with links to government and to key transport infrastructure supplies across Europe and North and South America.
STRENGTHS Fully scalable, from only one camera to city-wide networks, Parquery requires limited hardware investment, can be applied to existing CCTV networks to reduce installation costs, and can be used to generate revenues from illegal parking enforcement. The data generated can also be used to plan and manage congestion and occupancy.
One of the keys of Smart Cities is Data. The idea is to rely on existing infrastructure â€” all the cameras that are already there â€” to be able to deliver data in an easy way so that they can be used both by the cities for better management and by the citizens for a better quality of life, for instance allowing them to spend less time in their cars looking for a parking spot. Andrea Fossati, CEO of Parquery

SANTIAGO DE CHILE ON THE ROAD TO AN INTEGRATED FUTURE
The winner of the Season 2 FIA Smart Cities Award was Chilean capital Santiago de Chile, which was awarded top honours for its Plan Integral de Santiago, an agenda for improving sustainable mobility throughout the city, while better organising public spaces to accommodate all road users. The Plan Integral, which was launched in 2013, is an ongoing effort that has so far seen the redevelopment of existing pedestrian urban infrastructure, the development of hundreds of kilometres of dedicated cycle lanes, the introduction of city-wide dockless bike schemes, and the introduction of electric buses on the streets of the capital. Designed to improve the quality of life in Santiago, a city once notorious for heavy pollution and chronic traffic jams, the municipal centreâ€™s new intermodal transport system sees motorised and non-motorised forms of transport operating effectively in public spaces free from congestion and pollution. Several key transit arteries in and around the city centre have been dedicated solely to public transport use, clearing traffic and improving daily life for residents and visitors alike.
MAIN TARGETS OF THE PLAN INTEGRAL > 346 km of bicycle lanes > 7 new parking areas > 12 exclusive corridors prioritised for public transport > 13 bus-only streets > 200 electric buses on city streets
Smartly Integrated Santiago The city of Santiago was presented with the Season 2 FIA Smart Cities Award at the 2018 FIA Mobility Conference in Montevideo, Uruguay. Chosen from among innovative projects implemented by the 10 cities hosting a round of the fourth season of Formula E, the Plan Integral de Santiago is an intermodal system of transport where non-motorised means of transport are complementary to traditional ones, helping to reduce pollution, congestion, and the lack of public space. Announced by FIA President Jean Todt, the Award was collected by Soledad Perez, Head of Public Security and Order of Santiago de Chile. The presentation of the Award was preceded by a final FIA Smart Cities discussion on the theme of “Smart Mobility in Cities of the Future”, hosted by FIA President Jean Todt and FIA Environment and Sustainability Commission President and Former President of Mexico Felipe Calderón.
