In Europe, addressing the impact of mobility on CO2 emissions is crucial as the transportation sector remains a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions (up to 30%!). As urban populations continue to grow, the demand for smarter cities, including intelligent mobility solutions, is now on top of the minds of Europe’s cities. And not only to meet the sustainability targets of the European Union but also to stay a livable and enjoyable place.
We’re here to support this paradigm shift in Europe’s capitals. Picture this: Less traffic congestion and reduced air pollution through tailor-made, intelligent traffic management systems. More reliable public transport options through prioritization mechanisms. Smoother and safer rides for cyclists with intelligent traffic lights and recognition systems. Plus, more dependable infrastructure for charging electric vehicles through high-quality EVCI services.
To propel the mobility revolution in Europe to new heights, it’s essential to have local and global experts on board who know the European countries and their requirements first-hand. This ensures scalable, individual solutions. For every city, for every characteristic.
Therefore, we proudly announce that our forces at #TeamYunexTraffic are continuously growing. In the recent month, we welcomed three new faces to our leadership team, each bringing a wealth of experience and expertise to bring the mobility revolution in Europe to the next level! And here they are:
