Ped-elec: Development of a New Value Chain Approach to the Provision of an Urban Mobility Solution

Huw Davies, Oliver Turrell

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Velomobiles currently form a niche product when viewed in the context of the market for mobility. However, they have a number of distinct advantages over other forms of mobility when considering the need to reduce transport emissions, tackle congestion in urban settings and support the move towards energy independence. How to transition from a niche product to the mainstream is the focus of this research activity. The ped-elec project will provide a demonstration platform that integrates innovation in the product with new approaches to manufacture and retail, therefore realising a transition for velomobiles from niche product to mainstream mobility solution.
