A Note on Adaptive Function-Based Models: The Case of Mobility

Abstract : I propose a model for classifying innovations related to a particular function –mobility. My analysis demonstrates that existing typologies related to functional economy (FE) remain imprecise when considering specific functions. I include a systems perspective, bringing collective needs into the discussion. More precisely, I highlight the fact that, due to the complex systems in which the transportation system is embedded, collective consumption, like vehicle-sharing systems and self-service schemes, becomes crucial when mobility issues are addressed. Indeed, the satisfaction of individual needs has an impact on collective needs due to traffic congestion and rivalry for the use of limited parking spaces. As a strategy driving sustainability, the FE calls for institutional change.
