Private motor vehicles powered by gasoline are a thing of the past. Electric and electric-hybrid vehicles are the future norm. Vehicle batteries are part of an integrated energy solution for the city as a whole. The Internet of Things delivers the capacity for a range of just-in-time transport solutions.
Some questions to think about:
- Is there a business case for a transition to electric vehicles across the city? What are the preconditions of success for such a transition?
- Is it possible for smart apps to anticipate travel requirements and despatch available modes in a system-wide optimal manner?
