By applying what we've learned in the past and combining it with the technologies and knowledge we have now, we can see a clear direction for the future of mobility.

What can we expect as an individual and as a society, what can we expect from other individuals to help solve problems like climate change, road fatalities and traffic jams? And is mobility an island on its own, or does it relate to other domains like urban planning, energy, sociology, ..? What are the key elements to make our mobility better in the future?
