Welcome to AIMday™ Mobility 2022

Date: Tuesday October 4, 2022

Fast track solutions through industry-academic collaboration

Academic Industry Meeting Day, or AIMday™, is an internationally recognized opportunity to tackle questions around a central theme. This highly effective program enables university-based researchers and organizations to connect and bring world-class research to life. By matching organizations’ need for new knowledge with academic expertise, AIMday™ brings understanding and new perspectives to real-world problems.

Established in 2008 at Uppsala University, Sweden, AIMday™ has been implemented and refined by leading universities around the world.

Hosted by Queen’s University in collaboration with Toronto Metropolitan University and Hub350, AIMday™ Mobility will explore the future of mobility in its varied contexts – from advanced transportation to human health and beyond. The need to understand mobility trends and opportunities to utilize advanced technology to create viable mobility solutions is quickly mounting in order to reduce impacts on our environment, support next generation transportation modalities, have better outcomes for displaced communities, increase safety and security and enhance personal mobility including supporting those with impaired mobility.


Some example areas of interest for AIMday Mobility Questions include:

  • Connected, Autonomous Systems
  • Electrification/Electric Vehicles
  • Fueling and charging infrastructure
  • Vehicle-to-everything technology
  • Green mobility
  • Battery and power technologies
  • Security
  • Urban air mobility
  • Sensors/systems inside next generation vehicles
  • Mobility-as-a-service and/or Micro-mobility tech
  • Human mobility – Personal: health, rehabilitation, exoskeleton tech/soldier supports, advanced mobility aids
  • Human mobility – Urban strategy and policy: due to climate change, targeting better outcomes for migrants, refugees, internally displaced persons, asylum seekers, and other people on the move alongside the communities that host them)
