One of the hottest trends in our industry today can be summed up by the question:
“So what’s the deal with Mobility?”
The question of Mobility encompasses a variety of unknowns that we are rapidly diving into – from autonomous vehicle to innovative models of vehicle ownership. The scope of this topic extends beyond the motor vehicle into city planning, public transit, and as far as socioeconomic issues. Carlisle’s Mobility practice focuses primarily on the impact autonomous vehicles will have on the motor vehicle industry. We haven’t forgotten the aspects of mobility that reach beyond the passenger car, and we will occasionally touch on public and other modes of transportation.
There are dozens of companies researching autonomous vehicles and many are testing their products on public roads today. Each day, there is a new story in the media about the technological and testing developments in this space. However, the majority of coverage given to mobility is focused on the technology, not evaluating the impact it will have on our industry. The technology is compelling, but it’s not the full story.
