Abstract: Mobility Innovation at the Intersection of Business, Technology, Consumers, and Regulation
Mobility in the context of this presentation describes how people and goods get moved around, whether by car, truck, bus, two-wheeler, etc. The big trends in this are autonomous driving, electric vehicles, connected things, and shared mobility. And as much as there are technical challenges to overcome, consumer preferences to fulfill, regulatory requirements to satisfy, in all that arguably the biggest question is what the business case might be for this future transportation paradigm. Participants will learn in this interactive session about the different aspects of future vehicles and they will get exposed to the decision making process in the industry.
