The main objective of this project is to develop an integrated methodology by which to analyse mobility issues in areas of unique cultural heritage and to develop technological resources to provide better solutions, both in terms of environmental impact and accessibility. The works were conducted as a bridging project within the National R+D+I Plan (2008-2011) and arose from a collaboration between the GIPC and the UPM’s Institute of Automobile Research (INSIA).
The project sets out to resolve the accessibility chain (all the barriers found at the different scales) while also ensuring greater respect for heritage, control over the number of interventions, greater energy efficiency and avoiding congestion in heritage areas, historic town centres and historic complexes.
The research resulted in the publication of a book, La movilidad sostenible y accesible en el patrimonio cultural, edited by researchers Joaquín Ibáñez and Graziella Trovato, together with José María López. It compiles the works and points of view of various experts with the aim of drawing a baseline that will serve to guide future research.
