DISRUPTION AHEAD – EXPLORING THE TRENDS, TECHNOLOGIES AND PARTNERSHIPS DRIVING THE FUTURE OF MOBILITY
09:00
INTERNATIONAL KEYNOTE: Innovations in electrification, connectivity, and autonomy and the way people move around in an urban environment

Daimler is a market leader in car-sharing with its car2go brand. Nearly 14,000 cars of this car-sharing pioneer car2go are making an impact on the cityscape of metropolises such as Berlin, New York and Chongqing. This session will explore the world of ‘free-floating’ car-sharing and the winning formula for automation and connectivity.

International Keynote: The business models, technologies and policies driving the future of autonomous driving, ride hailing and car sharing

Sharing, electrification, and autonomous driving will reshape the way people and goods move over the coming decades. But as the recent unfortunate fatal accidents involving vehicles in autonomy mode have shown, positive outcomes are not guaranteed. Each of these trends has created a ripple across many industries. As the ripples grow into waves, they overlap – sometimes interfering, sometimes amplifying – which in turn creates uncertainty.
• Examining the current state of shared mobility and autonomous driving industry
• Clarifying regulatory approaches in a global context
• Tracking business models and technologies under development
• Mapping the future of shared, electrified and autonomous mobility
