Connected Mobility 2025
Personal mobility is key to the success and prosperity of every country's economy. But the growing population in the world's largest conurbations and the increasing amount of traffic are leading to paralysis. In the world's 30 biggest megacities, paralyzed traffic flows generate annual costs of more than USD 266 billion. The answer to how to get a grip on the problem of increasing passenger transportation lies with networked mobility. By intelligently linking transportation data and modes of transportation, people can quickly and easily use different mobility models as needed to get where they're going. Integrated offers and a comprehensive management function ("mobility manager") will play a central role by bundling various options and offering services from one platform. These are the key findings of a recent think: act study entitled "Connected Mobility 2025" by Roland Berger Strategy Consultants. The consultancy's experts defined five critical factors that will put smart mobility on the road to success.
"Although we live in an increasingly networked world, individual mobility remains mostly fragmented: At the critical moment, we lack the information on how to best get from A to B," explains Carsten Rossbach, Partner at Roland Berger Strategy Consultants. "Integrated offers for the networked consumer will have a major effect on our mobility habits."
