AI FOR SAFE & SMART MOBILITY
Towards zero emissions, zero deaths and zero left behind
The future of smart mobility is more than just the progression and mainstreaming of semi -and fully-autonomous transport systems in the market. It is also about examining how AI technologies can help reduce emissions, increase road safety, increase mobility and enable access to affordable transportation for all.
This year’s The Future of Smart Mobility Solution track will establish a concrete, inclusive and actionable discussion on how AI-enabled solutions can help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals for improving in-transit traffic safety, developing energy-/environment-efficient vehicles, transportation systems and infrastructure and providing inclusive and accessible mobility opportunities for all.
