The Terhills site can be regarded as a small city with specific mobility challenges. The closed mobility loop - a shuttle route of 4.2 kilometres - connects the different attractions and turns the site into an interesting testing ground to trial various innovative mobility solutions combined in a controlled environment.

The mobility project responds to a number of issues:

  • The safe testing, application and roll-out of autonomous mobility technology as an important and fast-growing trend in future urban transport systems (creating a Living Lab environment).
  • Investigating the interaction with users: from mapping transport needs to feedback analyses.
  • The use of subsystems for different transport solutions and their mutual coordination.
  • Research and construction of required infrastructure for electric and autonomous vehicles.
  • Developing the necessary connectivity between infrastructure, vehicles and users to estimate capacity and monitor and control user-behaviour.
  • The development of a business model for the sustainable exploitation of the various mobility solutions.
