Empowering inclusive mobility through virtual twin technology

In the quest for inclusive mobility, Dassault Systèmes enables individuals to push the boundaries of innovation using virtual twin technology. We believe everyone, regardless of their physical abilities or limitations, possess the capability to achieve their goals. 
Virtual twins empower innovators to simulate how design and urban planning decisions impact people's ability to move through the world freely. With this knowledge, a more inclusive and accessible world becomes achievable, allowing everyone to reach their full potential.

What does inclusive urban mobility mean?

Urban mobility is all of the movements of both people and goods that occur in a city via public or private transportation. The aim is to foster mobility as a universal right, which is essential to access other rights such as housing, work, education and health. Inclusive mobility solutions ensure unrestricted access to jobs and services for all.

Creating more accessible cities

Traditional infrastructures may not adequately accommodate diverse needs, limiting accessibility for those with mobility impairments. By leveraging advanced modeling and simulation, virtual twins enable the creation of innovative and adaptive solutions for mobility. Through the incorporation of virtual twins in urban planning, architecture and transportation systems (whether it be personal or collective), society can strive towards a more inclusive future where everyone, regardless of their abilities, can seamlessly and confidently move through the world.

Imagine inclusive technologies

3D modeling has emerged as a pivotal tool in the quest for inclusive and sustainable technology: designers can create virtual environments that simulate the real world and analyze the impact of various elements on the mobility of people with disabilities. Through the precise visualization and manipulation of digital representations, 3D modeling empowers technologists to craft more accessible, sustainable and accommodating technologies, ultimately fostering a world where individuals with disabilities can navigate and interact with their surroundings with newfound freedom.
