Abstract

The Horizon Europe 2020 TInnGO (Transport Innovation Gender Observatory) project1 aimed to facilitate the inclusion of women and underrepresented groups in smart mobility. Globally women form under 30% of the transport workforce. Significantly their travel needs are not met by current transport provision, despite evidence of different journeys and mobility concerns. Little research has been conducted on the inclusion of minority groups (such as those from BAME (Black, Asian, Minority and Ethnic communities and those with disabilities) – but a similar, if not poorer picture is likely. The design of future smart mobility is further skewed by the predominance of male transport designers and engineers.
The living lab approach has been shown to be effective in addressing mobility challenges. However, work with student designers and other stakeholders has highlighted barriers in the understanding and application of key underpinning concepts such as sustainability, diversity, intersectionality and empathy which might impede co-creation which may reduce design opportunities. To address this, TinnGO developed a series of tools to guide co-creation activities to increase empathy, understanding and use of intersectionality and design against UN Sustainable Development Goals for gender equality and sustainability.
