Smart mobility is about to break through
Digitisation has fundamentally changed our mobility and mobility behaviour. They cannot be separated from each other, however, because data availability is the pre-condition for new mobility services. Both comprehensive mobile networking and the use of user-generated mobility data have paved the way for innovative information and services in the mobility sector.
The new mobile communications standard 5G will redefine the future of mobility and logistics once again. 5G is supposed to help smart mobility to make its breakthrough as a large number of applications, such as the communication between autonomous vehicles, the real-time tracking of goods transport and traffic control in smart cities, build on the possibilities of a new mobile generation.
Platform business solutions bring together a range of mobility services and payment features. The example of the Smart Columbus travel app from Ohio, USA, shows that cities can also successfully set up and operate such platforms for mobility as a service (Maas).
