Introduction

Although smaller conurbations lack the raw numbers of the megacities, they share the same infrastructure problems that are challenging city administrations around the world.

Highlights

  • For the larger urban centers, transport services have been the first traditional services to benefit from the digitization wave. Unfortunately, many early approaches have been implemented as disconnected point solutions rather than as part of a cohesive digital strategy.

Features and Benefits

  • We are about to witness a paradigm shift that has the potential to combine the best aspects of private and public transportation – the autonomous vehicle.
  • Autonomous vehicles have the potential to dramatically change the lives of those for whom traveling around is currently a major challenge.

Key questions answered

  • Autonomous vehicles – as "individualized public transport," are they the best of both worlds?
  • For 50 years the private car has defined large aspects of society – so what's next?
