Since in many cities transport infrastructure is operating at or beyond capacity, novel approaches to organize urban mobility are gaining attraction. However, assessing the benefits of a measure that has disruptive capacity in a complex system requires a carefully designed research. This paper takes a recent idea for urban mobility - exible road trains - and illustrates the computational and research challenges of realizing its full potential and describing its social, ecological and economical impact.
