Wim Korver, Head of Research & Development Unit, Goudappel Coffeng
The 21 century: the end of the car mobility as we know it

Car use growth is coming to a hold. In several western countries car use is stabilizing or, especially among younger age groups, even decreasing. At the same time new urban mobility concepts are popping up: Car2GO, peer-to-peer networks leading to less car ownership, large investments in cycle lanes in large metropolitan areas like London and New York and a rebirth of urban rail systems (transit oriented developments). Are we experiencing the end of car mobility?

Robert Dingemanse, Co-founder and CEO, PAL-V
Flying cars, how will it affect future mobility?

Flying cars, a dream that already exists since the car was developed. Why did it take so long to be developed? What were the barriers? What will they offer? What has changed and how will its arrival within the next years change mobility? These are a number of questions that come to mind around this theme. This presentation will give answers to these and other questions. It will also trigger the imagination because we are just at the start of this industry it still hard to see what is beyond……………………

TomTom on Urban Mobility: The Future is Now

Over the last few years, new technology has started to change the way travelers make decisions about how and when to make trips. The adoption of navigation by millions of travelers worldwide was the first step. The second step is the development and use of real-time information about travel conditions, which was first the domain of ‘road warriors’ but is quickly becoming a standard way of smarter driving as well as mode choice. Initially, these traveler-based tools competed or even conflicted with government-based traffic management. However, these two worlds are now merging, as they should: everyone wins. A vehicle- or traveler-based information system is helping cities make better use of existing infrastructure while providing individuals with trip advice that is tailored to their specific route, time and destination. The collective effect will be to reduce investment costs in infrastructure while increasing overall travel time savings, reducing fuel costs and therefore reducing our urban carbon footprints.

Rohit Talwar, CEO, Fast Future Research

He will highlight critical challenges and choices that will emerge for citizens, mobility providers, investors, policy makers, planners and the emergency services.
