Because of ecological and social reasons of future traffic patterns, it is desirable in the medium-term establishing multimodal mobility, respectively ‘integrated electrified mobility’i. Under this objective, the “environmentally friendly” Electromobility is despite or perhaps because of their more limited range a fundamental building block of a futuristic transportation offer.
The following questions will be raised from the perspective of an innovative learner-training:
- How do I motivate driving learners to think in new or different mobility categories to cover their personal mobility needs based on their specific plans to travel and then to act?
- How do I motivate driving learner to satisfy their mobility needs with all available transport offers and to waive individual vehicle ownership?
The paradigm shift from conventional propulsion techniques towards electrified mobility will be politically guided in the coming years from governments and institutions. The combination of individual transport, public transport (eg various public transport systems) with cycling, ‘on foot’ mobility and with electric vehicles lead to new intermodal mobility forms, which are linked – in conjunction with a high energetic efficiency – to acceptable consumption of resources and emission reduction (CO2, particulate matter etc.),in favor of future generations of mankind.
While traditional driver training concentrates first and foremost in the exchange traffic law and safety-related requirements for driving a car, the learning objective multimodal mobility will change the requirements for the driving school of the future significantly. New collaborations by driving schools with each other, but also with public schools and mobility providers can support this development. While traditional driver theoretical training concentrates first and foremost in teaching traffic law and safety-related requirements for driving a car, the learning objectives of new multimodal mobility, eg integrated mobility, will change the requirements for the driving school of the future significantly. That is why we shaped the word ‘Mobility School’.
