Mobility is central to our everyday lives, for commuting, for combatting a sedentary lifestyle, for leisure, etc. Digital technologies are designed and targeted to support people mobility, from travel planners and real-time traffic information to enabling shared modes and on-demand mobility, but we need empirical knowledge about in what ways these digital technologies support mobility.

In particular, little HCI research is concerned with how digital technologies and new modes of mobility impact mobility for rural and urban contexts.
