When Chariot launched in 2014, it joined a wave of Uber-inspired "microtransit" tech companies hoping to disrupt transportation services by providing faster, more efficient options for riders sick of—and underserved by—traditional public transit.
Itzhak is the head of HERE Mobility, an 18-month-old unit of the mapping company HERE (jointly owned by BMW, Audi, and Daimler) that today announced the launch of an app called SoMo. That’s for “social mobility,” and it’s what Itzhak calls an “open global neutral mobility marketplace,” which is a wordy way of saying, an effort to pull together pretty much every way of getting around that isn’t a ride-hail service.
As we gather contributions from public and private stakeholders around the world, here’s where the conversation on transport and climate stands so far: Waste-to-energy technologies offer a promising alternative to more traditional renewable energy.
A city-by-city diagnostic that compared life cycle costs and GHG emissions of technologies ranging from clean diesel (Euro VI equivalent) and compressed natural gas (CNG) to battery-electric (BEB) and hydrogen buses was completed.
While the rollout of 4G greatly impacted component makers, network operators, and technology companies, Amon said, with 5G “basically every other industry understands that this technology will modify their business.”Qualcomm senior vice president and general manager for mobile Alex Katouzian shows off the new Snapdragon 855 at a media event in Hawaii.
A reduction in transport-related GHG emissions will only be made possible by reducing transport’s dependency on fossil fuels and increasing its reliance on alternative energy technologies. Focusing on alternative energy technologies for vehicles, it is no surprise that they make up only 1/9 of the total revenue generated by the transport market.
We had in mind three main ideas: (i) let’s understand how flooding impacts transport services; (ii) let’s compare how people move different in rainy season and out of rainy season (comparison of mobility patterns); and (iii) let’s analyze the changes on accessibility due to climate impact.
