Future of Mobility Summit


No more than a century ago, transport was a function of rails, wheels, hooves and feet. Today, transportation is offered to people, things and ideas in a dazzling array of options – from ridesharing services and scooters on what seems like every city corner to the first generation of automated vehicles.

In today’s era of hyper-connectivity, transportation has evolved from just moving people and things. Now data is moving the world forward. Mobile communications serve as the vital ingredient of smart cities, Artificial Intelligence, and autonomous transportation. How are 5G, the Internet of Things and other emerging technologies changing the landscape of mobility and how are city officials leveraging them to become more responsive to the needs of their residents? What are policymakers doing to support a culture of innovation while protecting the privacy of consumers?
