Miami-Dade County’s CoMotion Lab initiative aims to bring together global thought leaders to develop and test new mobility solutions in Miami-Dade and beyond.
Miami-Dade County’s mobility innovation lab has named the members of its first Smart Curb [Kerb] Management + Smart Infrastructure and Urban Air Mobility (UAM) Task Forces.
CoMotion Lab (C-Lab) is a joint initiative of Miami-Dade County’s Department of Transportation and Public Works and CoMotion, the Los Angeles-based digital media, conference and advisory platform on emerging mobility which organises the CoMotion Miami and CoMotion LA gatherings.
The Smart Curb Management + Smart Infrastructure Task Force is designed to pilot mobility solutions aimed at rethinking the way the urban kerb is managed. The Urban Air Mobility Task Force is focused on “in-air” solutions for goods delivery, passenger mobility, and operational enhancements to best serve residents, businesses, and visitors.
Smart Curb Management + Smart Infrastructure Task Force members:
“The appointment of these mobility all-stars will bring global thought leaders to develop and test new mobility solutions in Miami-Dade and beyond”
Urban Air Mobility Task Force members:
"As we work to expand mobility and transportation options in Miami-Dade to better connect our growing community, the work of CoMotion Lab ensures that innovation and collaboration are at the forefront of this conversation,” said Daniella Levine Cava, mayor of Miami-Dade County.
“The appointment of these mobility all-stars will bring global thought leaders to develop and test new mobility solutions in Miami-Dade and beyond.”
C-Lab is an advanced and connected “urban playground” for mobility innovation in which public rights of way in Miami-Dade County and in adjacent geographies are used to develop and validate new and commercially-viable transport technologies.
According to the county’s Department of Transportation and Public Works, with its 5,500 miles of public roads, its airspace and its maritime channels, Miami-Dade provides a complex and variegated testing geography, representative of different kinds of urban geographies throughout the US and beyond: dense urban centre; exurban sprawl; and developer-led communities.
