Mobility Hub

The collaboration between MIT’s Mobile Experience Lab and Eni started with a reinvention of the refueling experience but expanded to the big-picture, asking: How could the petrol station become a future hub for mobility? The two groups approached and redefined the question through research topics ranging from shifts in transportation patterns to mobile payment and user recognition technologies. It was this partnership between a research lab specializing in human-centric technologies and Italy’s preeminent oil company, bearing a strong vision of the future, that allowed this project to become a realizable re-conceptualization of urban mobility at a wide-reaching scale.
