09:15-10:05 - The Transport and Mobility Revolution: from asset ownership to service provision
The transport and mobility sector is undergoing a revolution. Car-sharing applications and driverless vehicle technology is radically shifting consumer perceptions of mobility from traditional asset ownership towards transport as a service. As our global population soars to 10 billion by 2050 with 80% of us living in cities, the consumer is increasingly concerned with buying a car that ticks the clean, green and affordable boxes. This session will discuss how realistic these futuristic visions are, how manufacturers are adapting to these changes, where the innovation is happening, and the scalability of these solutions.
Panel discussion to include:
- How a car sharing service can revolutionise city transport: but how transformational and scalable is this change
- Pipeline technology and driverless cars: What are the expected timelines and developments and what will this mean for the rest of us?
- What are the drivers and pressures in the new era of mobility and how are EU cities on the cusp of an EV switch over
