Electro-mobility is widely regarded as the future of transportation systems. The shift from fossil fuel-based engines to electro-mobility will pose new challenges to the operations of future transportation systems. Our vision of a smart transportation system for the future entails a collaborative communication and simulation infrastructure that can help to mitigate common traffic-related problems as well as problems that are specific to electric vehicles. At the core of this smart transportation system would be a symbiotic simulation system which incorporates information provided by the various traffic participants into city-scale traffic simulations. We describe the symbiotic simulation system and highlight the research challenges that need to be addressed in order to realize such a system. This includes a server-based city-scale simulation which would forecast general traffic patterns and conditions in the near-future. The outcome of these simulations can be used by server-based smart routing services and/or in-car navigation systems.
