Connected mobility : the way to go to dodge a future paved with obstacles

C

Connected GPS, lane-change assist or adaptative cruise control: many cars are now equipped with intelligent assistance systems. But what if a wireless internet connection could drive our vehicles to another level? What if the future of mobility was also connected… to us?

In 10 years, will it still be considered science-fiction to imagine a vehicle that interacts with a person that wouldn’t even own it? Could a car decide its route without having a driver behind the wheels? Could an itinerary be self-calculated by an on-board computer that would integrate the notions of traffic, conditions and required stops along the way to plan the safest, quickest, easiest route from A to B?

These questions lead us to the concept of coexistence: the dream of a perfectly engineered smart city with connected vehicles and users looks incredibly attractive but let’s not forget that these interconnected spaces will need a moment of adaptation to safely operate all together. And for it to work properly, advanced technology will need to be implemented in a larger scale: constructors, politicians, engineers and individuals will have to switch their brains from the smart cities challenge and start imagining a smart planet.

This concept is ground-breaking and represent a huge test for automobil constructors: will they survive, will they be able to follow the thread and adapt to the changes? Will they be able to modify their brand DNA?

What a time to be alive, what an exciting future to look forward to!
