MOBILITY-AS-A-SERVICE: WHY SELF-DRIVING CARS COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING

MOBILITY-AS-A-SERVICE: WHY SELF-DRIVING CARS COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING ARK expects that before 2020 fully autonomous vehicles will become commercially available, enabling the rise and rapid growth of autonomous taxi networks. These networks should decrease the cost and inconvenience of point-to-point mobility dramatically, spurring a transformative boost in economic productivity. As a result, the traditional automotive industry may be subsumed by mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) platforms that could become one of the most valuable... [Lire la suite]
