Ms Reeb are you still able to enjoy walking and shopping in the heart of a city completely relaxed or do defi cits in urban planning catch your eye around every corner Well you re a futurist 24 hours of the day and of course the phenome na you describe will also catch your attention In Berlin for instance pi lot projects for shared spaces are al ready up and running Shared spaces are streets on which all street users without separation utilize the same space and accordingly cars have to trav el at low speed a little like living streets correct Yes and on Maaßenstraße for ex ample a street reduced from six lanes to one the concept doesn t work at all Everyone is frustrated people can t fi nd places to park any more shops are waiting for delivery vans in vain and patrons are stay ing away from restaurants a typi cal case of good intentions but with poor results Essentially though shared spaces are a core element of many future visions of a livable city aren t they Yes they are too But let s face it there s no such thing as a concept that fi ts any and all needs Arterial roads cannot be converted into living streets Instead it s necessary to look for solutions that work in the places for which they re intended Sharing for instance can ap ply to automobiles as well Car sharing is one of the key ap proaches to easing the burden on cities There s no need to take one s child to school in the large SUV the family uses to go on vacation in A small city car is enough In the fu ture there ll be a lot more flexible mobility off erings specifi cally tai lored to the respective use case Ob viously we won t be able to buy all of them On the other hand the au tomobile will retain the fascination it exudes as a technical product peo ple would like to own One does not exclude the other When it comes to acceptance of shared cars are there any coun try specifi c diff erences Yes there are due to culture Eu ropeans tend to act as a group so the concept works there Americans see themselves as lone rangers so everyone wants their own car Actually that s what Asians want too but in China for instance an increasing number of regulations makes it more diffi cult for people to buy cars for personal ownership so they use car sharing systems in stead In the scenarios shown here you ve combined many diverse solu tions For instance we re seeing a cableway Those systems are pret ty popular in South American big cit ies There they primarily serve to connect the favelas with the downtown areas But they can make sense in Europe an cities as well Compared with oth er systems they can be built quickly at relatively low cost and don t con sume a lot of traffi c space The city toll you re proposing though is not a really low priced solution 98 euros will personal mobility become a luxury product No doubt seeing that is a little shocking at fi rst But it s based on the idea of a dynamic price mod el When nothing s going on for in stance at night it may even be free But when everyone wants to drive their own car then it ll be expensive At that time you can switch to anoth er means of transportation If switching were only so easy Hassle free switching between vari ous means of transportation is very important Convenience is the key to people s acceptance It has to be fast without long walks in between and payment systems have to be standardized Convenience is the key to people s acceptance Daimler futurist Marianne Reeb The Daimler Stuttgart 2036 scenario The geography is very special The city originally developed in a basin and is now sprawling into the surroundings Many access routes to the city center are heavily frequented downhill roads In the vision of the future access to the city will only be granted to zero emission vehicles for which toll fees will be charged as an additional control measure In the area of local public transportation a cableway system is conceivable enabling flexible boarding without interrupting the service as a whole because the pylons will also serve as access points A tunnel bus will use the empty space above the street to augment public transportation Sensors and artifi cial intelligence will enable a harmonious coexistence of pedestrian and vehicular traffi c 105 outlook
