Mobipool – Presentation event of the Car Pooling service, Pisa September 29th 2015

Mobipool is a carpooling service developed within the MobiWallet European project. It is the result of the collaboration among the Institute of Informatics and Telematics (CNR), the MIT Senseable City Lab, and ENEL Foundation, in partnership with Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna.

The aim of Mobipool is twofold. On one side, it offers a shared mobility service specifically tailored to meet the mobility needs of users communities. On the flip side, it allows the realization of a “car sharing living lab”, a powerful tool to investigate, for the first time, the connection between two fundamental aspects of our everyday life: mobility and social network.

Mobipool will be officially launched in Pisa on September 29, and offered as a free service to users at the Research Area of the CNR, at the ENEL Research Center and at the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna. The expected number of potential users will therefore be in the region on 2800.

Venue: Auditorium dell’Area delle Ricerca CNR di Pisa

Date: Tuesday September 29th ,  10:30

In addition to the program shown below, during the event a unique installation, developed by MIT Senseable City Lab and IIT-CNR, will be presented. The installation will allow users to perform a virtual taxi trip through New York city, and to share it with other passengers while exploring their Twitter profiles.
