BEYOND AUTOMATION | April 4 | Berlin

Panel of Investors, Start-ups and Corporates discuss future Mobility

The automotive industry will be hit by digitization as hard as any other industry. The mobility market is shifting towards diversification, autonomous driving, connectivity (data in and around the vehicles) as well as electrification. But with these trends a lot more questions regarding city policies, change of business models, regulatory challenges, willingness to pay etc. will rise. “Fit-for-purpose” will be the new guidance in decision making. And this development will be even triggered more by emerging markets. Revenues will shift towards on demand and data-driven services. High-density areas will become the new sweet spot to scale new models. The speed of software-based innovation will require upgradeability of cars. Furthermore, emission regulations, battery costs and availability of charging will be substantial for the speed of adaption to these changes. How to make consumers, regulators and corporates ready for vehicles taking over control from drivers?Innovation will come substantially from outside the traditional automotive industry. Is the automotive industry in danger to miss out on these trends? Is this the chance for start-ups to kick-in?
