'Hey Digital Assistant, Personalise the Transportation Experience for Me!''
more

2017 proved to be the tipping point for digital assistants. Debate how to embed this in the transportation experience to assistants know your needs before you do!

  • Think beyond voice to create the next gen vehicle UX which leverages voice, augmented reality, haptics and gesture to create a more intuitive transportation experience
  • As we move towards shared mobility, take advantage of A.I to learn and seamlessly activate the preferences of individual users
  • To partner or not to partner with the giants? With consumers now using digital assistants in their daily lives, assess the need to partner with the ecosystems that users are already familiar with

Urban Planning: User Centric Mobility at the Core of Smart Cities
more

Multiple stakeholders, multiple technologies, multiple timelines – the task of creating sustainable transportation is great. A cross ecosystem panel debates how to create a collaborative mindset that fosters mobility by design.

  • Assess how city infrastructure will morph to support shared mobility automated vehicles e.g. a reduction of parking lots and an increase in drop-off zones
  • Balance the societal by-products of AVs/CVs e.g. while new tech can be a driver for re-urbanization and supporting vulnerable citizens, it may also create “sprawl on steroids”
