The digitalization of our world and the intelligence moving in “everything” opens completely new possibilities - improving the way we live, we work, we consume and communicate. The world starts arranging around us, knowing our needs, taking away tasks, easing our lives and enabling us to manage even greater complexity than we ever could have managed before.
Connected Mobility specifies the mobile aspect of this new world – and the impact on the new transportation solutions for people, goods and information required to deliver the new value propositions and all the surrounding systems involved to make these happen.
Connected Mobility is about connected cars and the new services building around it – it is about integrated services supporting us to travel smarter, finding the optimal transportation solution, ensuring a relaxed and efficient journey, offering us individual services depending on where we are, which situation we are in and what are our preferences.
But it is also about the automation and optimization of the supply chain often spanning across companies and continents, about the fast delivery of goods or commodities as well as the tractability of goods, based on their origin, where they are and the condition they are in.
Finding the most efficient and secure logistical solution for a logistical task to do, ensuring legal and compliance rules while delivering a new and surprising experience for the user of the service is at the core of connected mobility.
What is the “next” thing startups are accelerating with? We are looking for new exciting concepts supporting, enabling and innovating connected mobility. Amongst others these can be around personal transportation, analytics, swarm intelligence, the connected car, security and compliance, interconnectivity, autonomous driving, manufacturing logistics, supply chain optimization, goods transportation, location based services, logistical marketplaces and track & trace solutions.
