The dynamics of mobility are constantly and rapidly changing, even more so in the new business and social environment. Our new report “The networked mobility of 2040” maps the new trends that will be a reality and also part of our everyday lives in less than two decades.
Electrified, autonomous and connected vehicles and networks will determine how people move from one place to another, always focusing on sustainability, efficiency and well-being. Download our report to know more about how to develop smart mobility platforms and services. The time is now.
Specifically, among the main trends we are mapping are:
- The Electrification: or the switch to electrical technology. The phenomenon, in strong progress, affects all Mobility, involving the private transport sector (two and four wheels), the commercial transport sector (light and heavy), the public transport sector and finally that of Micromobility.
2. Connected Mobility (Vehicle to Everything, “V2X”)
The development by the main car manufacturers of V2V (“vehicle-to-vehicle”) and V2I (“vehicle-to-infrastructure”) communication platforms, therefore allows vehicles to communicate with each other, as well as with infrastructures (eg buildings , traffic lights, etc.). The path traced is to search for solutions capable of maximizing the energy efficiency of electrical systems and a strong reduction in greenhouse gas (CO2) emissions on the planet. From this point of view, the most relevant area of development concerns the lithium battery, and in particular the management of the so-called Second-Life of the battery.
3. Autonomous driving: the segment of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs)
It is one of the main frontiers of transformation of the way of conceiving the movement of people and things. An autonomous vehicle is in fact a product that combines a system of sensors, cameras, GPS, radar and artificial intelligence (AI) software such as to simplify the driver’s interaction with the vehicle and the automation of the driving process, with the futuristic goal of completely replacing the driver of the vehicle. To date, it is still complex to break down the resistance and skepticism of demand in terms of effective security of the solutions offered and implementation times and market presence, at affordable prices.
This smart mobility will be the enabler of the Mobility 2040 vision: it will be the on-demand driverless car that shows up at your door; the buses, trains, and airplanes that communicate in real time for seamless connections; and the city traffic grid that constantly updates as demand changes.
Achieving such connected, flexible, and personalized transportation will require digital platforms with the power to connect people to all transport modes as well as related products and services.
