Trillion-dollar mobility industry

Smart cities

Urban growth and accelerated urbanization are putting enormous pressure on urban infrastructure. How do the global metropolises meet the challenges of accessibility, openness, and quality of life?

City representatives will outline the challenges of mobility and business representatives will explain how they help cities resolve them.

Round table

In the round table discussion, representatives from global metropole Dubai will talk about the integration of ICT and mobility solutions together with solution providers, present good practices and offer perspectives on urban mobility in the future.

Mobility as a Service

Mobility is evolving from a two-point transport to full-scale on-demand mobility service, including micromobility on the ground or urban air aviation in the air.

We will learn about successful business models in the battle of monetization, which put customer experience at the forefront and offer complementary services building the ecosystem.

Round table

At the round table, we will discuss the opinions of future mobility service providers who will present the findings of their pilot projects. We will address the main challenges of establishing Mobility as a Service and the strategy for connecting and building ecosystems, aiming at the most integrated and transparent selection of mobility.

Innovation in mobility

Who will be the winner of the 7,000 billion mobility market in 2050 as Intel has predicted?

It will be the companies that will introduce new ways of thinking into their business models and include start-ups in their innovation.

What are the new ways of thinking, how are established companies incorporating them into their business and what are the results?

Round table

What are the strategies and experiences of investing in start-up businesses in the field of mobility? How can we drive innovation in mobility and related industries?

Autonomous marketplace for self-driving cars

When mobility fully transforms into service and we are driven by others or artificial intelligence, we will suddenly gain billions of hours of free time. Some will spend this time resting, reading, working, eating and socializing.

The arrival of 5G networks will also provide services such as movies, series, video games, infotainment, online shopping, and many new opportunities. The ability to connect in newly emerged ecosystems will be crucial.

What will these new content ecosystems look like and what will we do when we no longer have to hold the wheel and focus on the road?

Round table

New technologies, high-speed connections, AR, VR, and ever-expanding in-vehicle displays are changing the driving experience as we know it today. Representatives from the automotive industry, ICT companies, and content providers will share the
opportunities for cooperation and their proven food practices.

The rise of e-mobility

We are in a time of climate and environmental crisis, which is why fossil fuels are becoming less and less desirable. This positions electrification, which also creates new opportunities, at the forefront.

How can we take advantage of the current chaos of different providers, pricing models and standards and how to set up an infrastructure that encourages electrification? How are plug-in hybrids affected by this?

Round table

Electricity is gradually becoming an increasingly important energy source, both in the field of micromobility and in personal cars. However, it is not yet a common choice for the users.

What are the steps we can take to popularize e-Mobility, how aware are the users and what are the reasons for the slow growth in the number of e-vehicles? How well is the infrastructure prepared for the arrival of them?

We will answers the questions such  as how to improve the user experience of charging (booking, payment, roaming, docking) and what the future global network of charging providers will look like.

Mobility 2020

Mobility as one of the fastest-changing industries

Looking for answers to questions such as “What we will do when we do not have to hold the wheel?”. Over the last decade, mobility has changed significantly. The Internet, high-speed mobile networks and smartphones have made it possible to choose from a wide range of public, private or shared transportation in real-time. The electrification […]

Mobility as a service, content as an opportunity.

Media company Delo and AV Living Lab will round up the business campaign in June with the international conference City as a Lab: Mobility 2020.
