A SCENARIO FOR TRANSPORTATION RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT.

THE DISTURBING APPROACH of current governances globally suggests much of the same old things about transportation. Scenarios offered are stuck in old thinking and provide insufficient evidence with a lack of imagination. The storytellers harbor leftovers of Corporate, Academic and Politbureau (C.A.P.) opinions riddled with economic measures protecting their tacit separate self-interests.

THE STORY FOR FUTURE MOBILITY must take into account both people and goods expectancies in future urban development scenarios. Ignoring these two essential features places governances at risk of being useless in the overall approach to resolving transportation movement flows. A future choice of mobility that will benefit people living in cities must consider the following broad features.

Citizen/leadership entails shifting “Democratic” decision-makers into four entities called “Genius Clusters.” Elected members earn a seat at their respective roundtables. Each gain titles as Ministers in thirteen specific categories with evidence of specific intellectual/skill characteristics.

1. The citizen/leadership must make a single choice of a future transportation technology vision to start a positive mobility global shift. The existing thread of destructive fossil fueled transportation systems must be set aside for a transition to occur. A new dot connection of “Smart City State” settlement pattern is prescribed. Inevitable linkage to each city will connect future transportation from local to global networks. Introduced correctly the mobility system will become environmentally benign. The feasibility of cost to benefit for people and goods travel must weigh in at a minimum cost per mile traveled.

2. Manufacturing in the new transportation industry formation needs to transition into complying with a variety of mixed-use lightweight vehicles and minimal supportive infrastructure to supply the product parts and pieces. Required universally the implementation of such a new worldwide transportation system the simple capability performance for implementation must be conducted in each sovereign nation.

3. The time has come for human intelligence and skills to be educated about transferring the knowledge and vision already on hand from extensive engineering in outer space to bring these intellectual assets to comply for use on Earth.

4. The Sovereign Nation who begins this future mobility industry adventure will gain the people’s respect and influential capability to envision the numerous advantages to pass on its transformation to cities worldwide.

THE TECHNICAL APPROACH to sharing such a future vision of transportation is eminently possible to serve people and goods in cities worldwide. The natural resource supplies for useful non-toxic impacts on humanity are available on all continents. Material attributes when broken down to a molecular level will create multitudinous jobs for work toward a better world in which to live together.
The first factor of consideration is the generation of ENERGY for a transition into a new transportation system. Anticipating decentralization of energy systems sufficient solar, the wind, geothermal and storage means is fast approaching needed supplies. Using the mobility infrastructure as energy gatherers with habitation structures is presently possible. The second factor is to allow for flexible REGULATIONS to advance mobility services and technologies. Begin locally to then penetrate from villages to towns and cities thus offering linkages that are critical to reaching regional and national portals.

SHARED MOBILITY in common, means combining the separated trends of status quo thinking. Private ownership means a purchase, lease or rent of autonomous electric vehicles (AVs) to be used in transition for existing circumstances against air resistance on existing road networks from point-to-point. Public transit merges into a shared vehicular mobility system seamlessly. There is no prejudice secondary transit alternative necessary.

TRANSITION mobility carries both personal and package systems. Therefore it must employ access for embarkation and disembarkation to a new transportation network of future infrastructure. The existing roadway networks, therefore, are helped with a change in new lightweight vehicle axle weights enabling longer life use and less maintenance of roadway operations for existing traffic flows. Add to this “utilities” in the form of a pedestrian, bicycle and “green” networks with measured distances to settlement portals in urban footprint designs. These characteristic distances are presently ignored, omitted and forgotten. Essential urban design patterns of primary human energized transportation on foot for walking, pedaling on bicycles and/or venturing into nearby gardens and/or recreational landscapes must adopt a biophilic adjacency for health.

INTEGRATED mixed-use mobility systems must envision ergonomics for movement of elderly, wheelchair bound and children to also enter the system safely and comfortably. Similarly, the transportation of goods is broken down into smaller components allowing entrance to the same geometric dimensions and weight carrying capacities. Small is beautiful in all respects.

UNFOLDING a simple yet all electric future for mobility considers mixed-use of a lightweight vehicle entering a new infrastructure network. At key locations, portals are placed to enhance the connectivity of footprint and tire passage flows with the Internet of Things. (IoT) Principle mobility fundamentals are easily merged together for uninterrupted motion performance. City dwellers and package identities interrelate with software systems to facilitate travel trip planning and guidance from point-to-point as well as an emergency exit in between.

COMMUNICATION capabilities internal and external to the mobility system allows for marketing visual video connections along the entire journey. The collapsing of time, distance with speed of “object” delivery in the system with safety and capacity has three main benefits. First reduces the costs of traffic congestion and traffic accidents. Second reduces toxic emissions of carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and fine airborne particulates in cities. Third reduces human and environmental health problems such as respiratory diseases, heart attacks, and premature births, and many other maladies that are aggravated by local air pollution and plagues.

MAXIMIZING these benefits for a mobility transition needs wise citizen/leadership decision-making. First considering the impacts of space given to mobility corridors, the air rights, the system geometry, the portal locations, the main spinal line and secondary lines for local service require focused predictive attention. Second considering the consequences of the efficient use of a new transportation system will be the shifts in employment and choice of residential location and commutes to the place of work. Third, the rapid access to face-to-face meetings of citizen/leadership collapses for the benefits of mutual reality representation on contentious policy issues for decision-making. Fourth personal trade between individuals now permits agreements and contracts to be made in face-to-face meetings. As a result for example swift transmission of people and objects such as human organs, perishable substances, liquids and hard goods to places of need in the shortest possible time frames.

DEVELOPING cities means a continual wrestle against principalities, powers, and rulers of mankind. Pledging loyalty to the Creator of Earth means properly stewarding actions and responsibilities for a new path to cleanse the human induced destructive conditions perpetuated each day by citizens. A partnership that recognizes urban design and citizen/leadership duality for future cities cannot be ignored. A net zero “Smart City State” is attainable.

THE SCENARIO for new cities accomplishment faces, First Densely Developing Megalopolis, Second — High Income, Low-density Cities, Third — Dense, Developed Cities and Fourth — Permanent immigrant migration settlement encampments that turn into undesirable permanent settlements. Finally a worthwhile attempt to start the rightful arising of new established “Eco-City States” must begin locational distributions to avert the aggrieved normality existing in the existing urban pattern expansions. The four “Genius Cluster” layers of Ministers will demand tough urban renewal decisions for unprecedented and difficult physical remediation and implementation.

THE APPROACH must thoroughly weed out the existing abnormality and conventionality of present urban design thinking. Absorbing technologies to evaluate the worth of acceptance for integration into cities that shape mobility is a priority. Serving redesigned urban footprints to balance the benefits of fit into a known environmental ecology improves the lives of citizens. Extreme urban design challenges will test community design determinations for real objective success.

PIONEERING such changes requires a catalytic urban planning prognosis, management, and operation, manufacturing, and assembly. Future dawning capabilities of feeding data for Artificial Intelligence promises helpful returns, is on the horizon. Film creators and fiction writers sharing virtual urban opportunities to deliver near term city vision futures should be charged with stimulating citizen imagination. Both these responsible human efforts will expose urban design to bring fresh alternative planning realities into view.

BALANCING best future estimates and predictive guesses to ultimately enable a cooperative interdisciplinary approach for the urban design of self-sufficiency, sustainability, and durability that must produce Peace, Prosperity, and Liberty. The process relies upon common sense citizen/leadership decision-making participation. Resolving the duality of man-made city footprints in Natures eco-environments is an urgent activity. Cleansing the Earth to receive its abundance in healthy environments for all species is a landscape of hope for following generations.
