/PRNewswire/ -- Global Mega Trends continue to impact
mobility, and the effectiveness in how people and goods move around. The
world is experiencing rapid urbanisation, changes in the production and use of
energy, changing social preferences, and rapidly advancing technology. All of
these aspects play a key role in the mobility service the consumer of today
expects.
Yet there is one underlying trend that is leading to the convergence of
products, technologies and indeed whole industries: Connectivity. With a
forecast of 80 billion connected devices by 2020, or 500 devices per square km
by 2020, the Internet of things is set to continue to impact every sector; and it
will certainly affect mobility.
Frost & Sullivan's upcoming annual industry event, entitled
'Urban Mobility
3.0: OEMs New Mobility Offerings and New Business Models Linking
Web 2.0'
aims at providing a platform for representatives and thought leaders
of all industries to assess the impact of connectivity on the future of mobility.
The two-day event, taking place in
London
on 13th and
14th June 2012
, focuses
on four targeted panels to facilitate a visionary thought-exchange on global
mega trends, the future of mobility, new mobility business models,
governments' visions for an inter / multi modal transportation, as well as
mobility infrastructure trends.
"By 2014 every new car will be 'connected', either via an embedded or a
tethered platform, making the car the third most connected 'device' behind
mobile phones and tablet computers globally," stresses Frost & Sullivan Mobility
Programme Manager, Mr. Martyn Briggs. "The impact this will have on the
industry could be colossal, facilitating innovative services delivered to drivers in
real time, and equally providing manufacturers with ongoing revenue streams
such as automotive app stores, continuing well past the point of sale."
However, it is not only the connectivity inside the vehicle that will drive such a
paradigm shift in the industry. The rise of smartphones in itself has provided
numerous opportunities for mobility products and services to flourish.
"An example for such a business model is car sharing," Mr. Briggs explains.
"The use of location based services to pinpoint nearest vehicles accurately,
applications to reserve and unlock vehicles, and even ways to pay for the
service via a smartphone, is facilitating rapid growth in the industry."
Similarly, this gives rise to a more integrated and multi modal transportation
network, with smartphone users able to access real time information,
scheduling and payment information on the go and at the touch of a button,
breaking down some of the key barriers to using other modes of transport, and
well aligned to most governments' vision for a sustainable transport network.
