Track: Smart Mobility and Smart Cities

The transformation of cities is key to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in the near future. The worsening climate crisis urges to long-term solutions which orientate the development of cities to be more sustainable and livable spaces. Urban planning remains as a complex task and, therefore, benefits from the use of technology to better assess the actual needs of cities and find the best way to conjugate the already existing resources towards smarter and more accessible places. Hence, this study focuses on the implementation of UrMoAC, a tool developed by the German Aerospace Center, to obtain useful data about the San Francisco Bay Area which in return can be utilized to shape and guide planning processes oriented to promote urban accessibility and the SDG.  The results demonstrate that the urban areas of San Francisco Bay Area have good accessibility levels to public primary schools and help to understand the dynamic environment of the cities involved and plan accordingly to create smart mobility.
