Smart Cities, Smart Mobility

Transforming the Way We Live and Work

by

No discussion on mobility can exclude the broader context – the cities, the countryside, the local and national economic, political and social environments, as well as, of course, the technological progress that is being made in industries that are associated with this revolution. The urban environments which we call home and that are part of our identities will evolve. Through the air quality we lack, the infrastructure we use, the mobility we need, and the way we work, our lives are being transformed in fundamental ways.

After automotive, first tier suppliers, insurance and financial services, and public transport, more and more industries and companies are beginning to experience the impact of the mobility revolution. This book also delves into smart energy, smart infrastructure and the use of data, but always maintains its clear focus on who is important: the city-zen.

“The mobility revolution represents the biggest paradigm shift since the advent of personal transportation. The impact goes beyond just transportation, however, and Lukas’s new book offers an invaluable insight into the transformation of cites, mobility and society in the coming decades” - Mark Preston, CEO, PrestonEV

“Lukas Neckermann is clearly enthusiastic about the promise of technology, yet he does not fall into the trap of imposed top-down solutions by experts and ideologues. In his book, he rather advocates for a human-centered bottom-up approach where people will have choices according to their own preferences. A well readable book with a wealth of information about the transformative challenges and opportunities that cities – and their residents – will face in the 21st century.” - Richard Straub, President, Peter Drucker Society Europe

A "fascinating tour-de-force of the mobility revolution... Neckermann’s book is a dynamite to clear our mind in order to see how the future takes shape in our key industries and in our ever more nomadic ways of life."
