Modern Mobility

MODERN MOBILITY INDUSTRY TRACK

 

We are witnessing a radical shift in how people get from Point A to Point B. The future of mobility will be frictionless, automated and personalized and it will affect us all.

Let us nerd-out and discuss the implications.

MOBILITY AND THE FUTURE OF OUR CITIES – KEYNOTE

 

Cities are in constant motion. Trains carry people to and from work; taxis circulate around; trucks deliver goods; cyclist and pedestrians hustle down the streets.

Emerging mobility innovations will dramatically impact the way we move around our cities—for better or worse. Megacities like Delhi (and Turku) are looking at data and collaboration to help move people faster and more efficiently.

What is to be expected within the areas of public transit, ride sharing, and parking? How will cities transform the way we move around in urban environments?

TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE AND THE IMPORTANCE OF PRIVATE INVESTMENTS – DEBATE

 

Mass transit systems such as metro, light rail, Bus Rapid Transit are reshaping our requirements for infrastructure. Roads are getting smarter, tunnels deeper, bridges longer. All require investing large amounts of money at once, usually meaning government money. What is the role of private investment in all of this?

In this debate we will look closer into the Helsinki-Tallinn tunnel project, and the way transportation infrastructure will be built.

 

MOBILITY AND THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY – FIRESIDE CHAT

 

Studies suggest that by 2030, nearly no one will own a personal car. Instead, most of us  would hail self-driving, electric ride-shares to get around.

Will the future manifest as a network of communal, autonomous electric cars owned by rideshare companies? Is the car, as we today know it, really dead?

THE FUTURE OF PASSENGER MOBILITY – PANEL

 

Passenger transport is undergoing a profound transformation as a result of technological breakthroughs, new market entrants, and changing travel behaviours.

Disruption to existing business models will be widespread. What will passenger mobility look like in 10 years? Take a seat when the passenger transportation behemoths reveal their views of the future.

The Modern Mobility Industry Track is organized together with City of Turku and Turku Science Park.
