How the Nexus of Automated Vehicles and Mobility as a Service Will Affect City Life

In an article for Automotive World, Navigant Research investigates the synergies arising from automation, connectivity, and transport as a service

Automation, connectivity, and transport as a service: the synergy between these trends suggests that a revolution in mobility services is a lot closer than may be expected. Navigant Research assessed the effects of key mobility trends on a model city of 3 million inhabitants who collectively own 1.5 million personal vehicles.

In an article for Automotive World, Jan Cihlar, senior consultant at Ecofys, a Navigant company, describes how the interaction between the three major mobility trends — personal mobility-vehicle automation, cleaner powertrains, and mobility as a service (MaaS) — is likely to speed up progress. The synergies may not only boost automated vehicle deployment, but also render urban transportation needs more compatible with cities’ sustainability plans.
