International Future of Mobility

The automotive and with it also the urban transport industry is undergoing a dramatic change. It seems all is coming together at once. Electrical vehicles (EVs) are knocking at the doors and consumers seem ready (surveys in Switzerland have shown that 50% want to buy an EV as their next car). While not expected by the “experts” to come within decades also autonomous cars are to be seen in 2020 in some countries. This will bring with it a dramatic change also in business models. From selling a just-good-enough car to the masses to running transport services that are highly affordable (1/10 to owning cars) to the users.

The Future of Mobility event is new as well and breaks totally with the traditional car shows one knows addressing the true future of combining it all: electrical, autonomous, eVTOL, connected, sharing, transport as a service while also looking at newer technologies and models. Thousands of mobility startups alone in Europe are pushing this forward forcing a slow moving industry to get finally up to speed.

While this is reality it also seems that there is a shift from Europe to North American and Asian (China) dominance happening. Will the future of mobility driven by the software and internet players and the Chinese EV and hardware manufacturers used to applying disruptive business models? The event will give a glimpse into this close future and also discusses Europe’s role.

Urban air mobility (eVTOL)

Can AI pass the pilot license skill test?

How feasible is Urban Air Mobility everybody is talking about?

It depends on how real is fully autonomous flight: not only there is a shortage of pilots to build the new air taxi industry - it's more: the human brain has not evolved for driving inside the heavy air traffic at the speed it implies. So, the key enabler for the industry to come is autonomy. But it must be built at the highest standards of safety and be more reliable than a human pilot.

The talk describes what are the steps on this way and what considerations should be taken.
